Sach O‘s favorite line from this film: “Smoke a spliff and make some dub, why would you want to do anything else?”
Some old testament shit right here, if you can wrap your mind around how something from 2006 can feel a million years old. This DIY doc on Bristol’s nascent Dubstep scene probably won’t teach you anything new if you’re as OCD about the music as I am but it’s a great reminder of the potency and energy carried by the original formula before the genre atomized into a million different directions. Interviews with Pinch, Peverelist, a teenage pre-Addison Goove Headhunter and more plus a killer soundtrack and some valuable gems about how this stuff is supposed to sound merge to form necessary viewing. Plus, it’s hard not to crack a smile when everyone involved says there’s no chance any of this stuff could ever crack Radio 1. Rarely has a statement ever been so wrong and so right at the same time.
