Great Documentary following the birth of ghetto house all the way up to present day as the sound has seen a resurgence with new producers and the way the sound is growing and stepping into other genre’s. B-More is the sound that seems to have taken a lot of the elements from ghetto house/juke music and made it their own.
These sounds really bring back memories when I first got into techno in the late 90’s and the sound that those DJ’s were incorporating the sound into their sets. The Likes of DJ Deeon, DJ Funk, DJ Assault and so on.
Currently all the rage with hipsters worldwide, Chicago Juke music has roots that run deep. The film chronicles the birth and evolution of a genre over 25 years.

Solid Steel in association with Serato. Following two highly acclaimed video mixes ‘The Reels of Solid Steel’ and ‘Revenge of The Nerd’, DJ Cheeba now returns adding live footage and green screen video shoots into his usual fast paced mix style. Music comes from Dave Clarke, High Rankin and Prince among others while video influences draw on everything from Disney to super heros via Spinal Tap and Bristol’s recent ‘See No Evil’ street art event. The art of the mixtape just took another leap forward and there’s no looking back.
