After a while, Resident Advisor is back with a new episode of their highly successful series of documentaries called Real Scenes. The idea of these short movies is to show and capture the stories within some of the most musical, cultural and creative cities that inspired and built electronic music scene over the world. In previous episodes, they've highlighted cities such as Berlin, Paris, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York and others. The documentaries showed producers, DJ's and promoters that were an important part of each city and were deeply connected to the creational process. On top of that, the series also presents places, spaces and inspirations, which gave these hyper-local scenes a truly global resonance.
Real Scenes: London
The series wouldn't be great without presenting the city with world's biggest and most diverse electronic music scene - London. It's where every culture comes together and that diversity made a serious impact on the scene with creating numerous new genres such as jungle, garage, grime, dubstep and UK funky. According to Resident Advisor, London may be one of dance music's most important cities, but it's also one of its most troubled. It has reached a defining moment for nightlife culture. From club closures to widespread police pressure on venues, to the looming threats of gentrification and Brexit, dance music in London has often felt under siege.
