Episode 9 of the Sounds of Black Britain podcast is here and joining Julie Adenuga this week is General Levy and Frisco to talk about some of the UK’s most pivotal cultural exports, jungle, grime and garage.
Jungle, garage and grime all share connections and offer a comprehensive history of each as well as detailing its critical successes, its impact on the culture and chart successes – Julie, Levy and Frisco get into a deep conversation.
Mapping out the cultural context behind these musical movements from politics to migration and more, this podcast episode is a must-listen for any present-day UK music fan who wants to know the context behind the music that they love.
The new release is just the latest as part of the Spotify and Unedited joint project podcast which is a partnership with social enterprise, The Black Curriculum.
With new episodes dropping throughout Black History Month, the Sounds Of Black Britain Podcast is a welcome and important new series that shines a light on Black music and its global significance.
Speaking about working on Sounds of Black Britain, Julie said, “Working with the team on this podcast has been such an incredible experience. The work that The Black Curriculum is doing – providing all young people in the UK with the opportunity to learn about Black British History, all year around, not just for Black History Month is incredibly important. This podcast is another step toward raising awareness about our history. I’ve learned so much on this journey and I’m so proud of the legacy that Black British music holds.”
