The Bass Culture film is a brand new documentary featuring the voices of four generations of African-Caribbean and black British cultural producers – musicians, songwriters, DJs, sound system crews, and industry professionals.
Through key voices central to five decades of new British genres such as UK Roots reggae, UK Dub, Pop reggae, Brit Ska, Jungle, Drum And Bass, Trip-Hop, UK Garage, 2 Step, Dub Step Grime, and a host of other UK sub genres – the film explores the impact of Jamaican music on popular British culture over the last 50 years, which in turn continues to influence global popular culture.
The Bass Culture film was commissioned by local resident and researcher Mykaell Riley, as part of Bass Culture, his AHRC research project mapping the impact of Jamaican music on Britain over the last half century.
The film is produced by Fully Focused Productions, a youth led media organisation that uses the power of film to raise awareness, challenge perceptions and transform lives. The production brings together film industry professionals with young people from some of the most disadvantaged backgrounds in London.
Following the screening, stay around for a fun Saturday evening with Reggae DJs! Sisters of Reggae- all female vintage vinyl – meets Peckings the pioneers in a DJ encounter like no other..
