Dutty Artz just made my Friday night a little sweeter by pointing me to “Jamaican Soundclass” on Pitchfork.tv.

This short documentary from director Adam Glickman, seen here in an early rough cut, explores the history of Jamaican sound system and dub culture. The film uses interviews with Paul Simonon, DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, and more to explore the roots of this music and the influence it had around the world.
