Children of the Windrush Generation: The pioneering DJs who paved the way for UK dance music (djmag.com)

Excellent piece here on the influence of the Caribbean culture, especially Jamaican soundsystem culture, on the UK scene and in turn the wider culture that has been so influential to this day. Particularly poignant and relevant in the wake of the recent Windrush scandal this really breaks down and gives a background to the culture so many of us are familiar with in the big cities in the UK such as London, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool. Great quotes and interviews from DJs and artists such as Roni Size, Norman Jay, Ashley Beedle and Jumpin Jack Frost
