Babylon

February 6, 2010

Here’s a link to a very cool film from 1980 featuring UK soundsystem battles with Jah Shaka. It’s not available for embedding here so you’ll need to watch it on Vimeo. I recognise some Brixton streets in this film, in and around the market. It was mostly filmed around Lewisham and is a great look at the soundsystem culture and street life at that time.
