Bureau Of Lost Culture – The Birth of the Asian Underground (31/07/2022)

Soho Radio

DJ and broadcaster Bobby Friction drops by Soho Radio to tell the tale of how bunch of British kids from immigrant families ripped it up, mixing their traditional musical roots with drum and bass, electronic beats and urban sounds to form a new countercultural genre all their own – the Asian Underground.

We dig deep into all sorts of other stuff too: growing up in 70s London, racism on the city streets, ghazals, ABBA, Prince, The Beatles, Bhangra, daytime gigs, Sikh culture. radical politics and of course London club culture.

And Bobby makes a heartfelt plea for the British to become one people celebrating their diversity rather than splitting back into tribes.
