Against a backdrop of austerity, riots and institutional racism, Grime became the defining sound of an era. Ewen Spencer’s exhilarating film is told through Grime’s grass-roots originators, from major players like Dizzee Rascal, to unsung heroes such as DJ Slimzee, along with behind-the-scenes operators who propelled, and continue to drive, the music’s relentless 140BPM heartbeat. 8 Bar shines a light on an untold history, bringing a cultural art-form the recognition it deserves and highlighting the impact of these Black British artists on contemporary music, fashion and popular culture.
