GUYS SO I REALLY HAVE TO GO NOW
BUT IF ANYONE CAN SEND SOME MUSIC RECS MY WAY FOR THE 221B BAKER TOWERS THING
THAT’D BE AWESOME
BECAUSE MUSIC IS MY FUEL AND ALTHOUGH MY KNOWLEDGE OF BRITISH URBAN MUSIC IS OKAAAAAAY IT’S NOT GREAT
LIKE I KNOW WHO DIZZEE RASCAL AND THE STREETS AND TINCHY STRYDER ARE, SORT OF THING
(I’VE EVEN SEEN THE LATTER LIVE)
BUT IF ANYONE’S GOT RECS OF LESS FAMOUS, MORE ‘GRASSROOTS’ MUSIC THAT THESE CHARACTERS WOULD LIKELY LISTEN TO THAT WOULD BE FUCKING AMAZING, PLEASE AND THANK YOU
THIS IS NOT AT ALL WHAT YOU ASKED FOR because you really can’t get more “famous, not-grassroots” than this (anything well-known enough to get over here is going to disqualify it from your list), but WILEY.
(and now that I think about it, can we declare this the theme song for 221B?)
And, again, TOTALLY NOT GRASSROOTS EVEN IN THE SLIGHTEST, but because the concept was originally inspired by Attack the Block, can we get some Basement Jaxx in there, too?
