On 15th June 2011, The Heatwave set up »Showtime« bringing together legends from every era of UK rave music to share the mic and spit lyrics over classic dancehall riddims. Now, »Showtime« is available on DVD:
In the feature length Showtime film, Rollo Jackson (Tape Crackers, Toddla T, Hot Chip) captures the magical live performances and takes us behind the bright lights and onstage hype, conducting in-depth interviews with pioneers of the UK bashment scene like Glamma Kid, Stush, Skibadee and Riko Dan. The result is an epic document of UK music culture and a vital piece of oral history, telling a story which is often forgotten or misrepresented by the mainstream.
Grab the DVD in The Heatwave’s online store. Mad props to the Heatwave crew!
