Futurit: Popular music in context #Londýn

Presented by Peter Dolník

Great Britain’s capital where the whole world is mixed. A city where music and music industry has been thriving for decades, a city where music is taken seriously. How did migration waves to Britain influence the creation of new genres? How did the sound system culture reach the city and what was the reaction of the British musical tradition? Media and clubs from the mid 80’s to present day. A scene of free parties and gentrification. From acid house to jungle, from 2step to dubstep. And what was the reaction of grime and Brexit? Celebrities, scenes, labels, genres. Popular music in the broader social, cultural and political context. Alternative pop, club electronic, experimental sounds. The current day with a legacy of the near-past.
