Real Scenes: London (youtube.com)

It seems a fitting time to post this film which about the underground music scene in our city at a time when factors such as Brexit, terrorism and marginalisation of the poor,  which was tragically brought into the mainstream last week due to the fire in Grenfell tower in West London, threaten to tear about the vibrant and diverse community that has developed over the past 50 years.


The club scene that developed off the back of the 80s warehouse party scene and acid house movement of the 80s has been hugely influential and is a result of a melting pot of cultures. It's never just been about the music, it's just as much about the people and the community with the music serving to break down the barriers and bring people together. 


Great job by the Resident Advisor team on putting this together
