A short film celebrating young Black artists in London’s electronic music scene, titled ‘New Rave’, is available to watch now.
Released as part of London's The Design Museum's ‘Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers’ exhibition, the documentary, which as been produced alongside Play Nice, aims to showcase not just the history but "the creatives shaping today’s scene and moving it forward”.
Featuring interviews with Errol Anderson, Shy One, Tash LC, and Bone Soda's Tommy Gold, the short film explores the connection artists have with electronic music, and about electronic music's roots in Black history.
Speaking in a press release, Play Nice studio said: “This story is about acknowledging the past and presenting the future of electronic music, through our cast who have been inspired by the countless Black musicians in this space. Our cast, who are also inspirations in their own right shaping sonics and nightlife in London, are now undoubtedly going to shape a whole industry post-lockdown.”
The Design Museum is still showing the exhibition with safety measures in place, including reduced capacity, social distancing rules and the compulsory wearing of face masks. Learn more about ‘Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers’ here. You can watch the documentary on Youtube below.
