"United Nation: Three Decades of Drum & Bass", a documentary charting the rise of drum & bass from its origins in the early hardcore and jungle scene, right up to the modern global phenomenon, is now available for streaming on Netflix.
Director and producer Terry "Turbo" Stone was a working-class kid brought up on a council estate who, in his teens, saw opportunities in this budding scene. Against the odds he founded "One Nation" and became one of the most significant club promoters of the scene.
The film touches on all the cornerstones of the early rave story - M25 parties, the Criminal Justice Act, Leah Betts - but where the film really comes into it's own is in it's extensive use of original archive footage. This raw and often previously-unseen footage is backed up with interviews and talking heads with some of the biggest names in the scene.
The documentary features numerous luminaries of the scene including Andy C, Phantasy, Hype, Adam F, Sigma, Fabio & Grooverider, DJ Fresh, Nicky Blackmarket, Brockie, Top Buzz, Skibadee, Shabba Dan, GQ, DJ Rap, Ray Keith, Simon Bassline Smith and many more.
The documentary has finally arrived at Netflix and is now available for streaming - check out the trailer below:
