A History of UK Pirate Radio with DJ Spooky21:30 - 03:00
On the 22nd March, we rewind to arguably UK Dance Music’s most dynamic period-the decade of pirate radio. It was a time characterised as a melting pot for the creation of what is now known as the London sound, taking you through the genres of: jungle, garage, grime, dubstep, UK funky and beyond.
Cast yourself back to a time when stations were at risk from both the Police and rival stations battling to pledge allegiance to a viciously talented roster of MCs and selectors, with the likes of Wiley, Kano, Skepta, Chip and many many more using Pirate Radio as an essential battleground for success.
On Friday 22nd, we experience the very best of this era from Heartless Crew, Pay As You Go Cartel, Roll Deep, So Solid Crew, Ruff Squad and Nasty Crew – paying homage to a seminal period in UK Bass culture.
