Reggae’s been part of our national soundtrack for over six decades and its ability to evolve and influence other genres is stronger than ever today. The UK has produced the next generation of Bass Culture, with dubstep, bashment and grime dominating our dance floors and pushing new boundaries. It’s the perfect time to get involved. On Saturday 3rd May we are running a day of workshops and panel discussions exploring this crucial force in UK music, culminating in a live performance.
