Bass Culture by Lloyd Bradley



Description:

'Bass Culture' is a complete history of reggae, from its origins in the Jamaican sound-systems dances of the 1950s, through its enormous international triumphs of the 70s, to the current generation of new roots artists who are searching out a way forward for the sound. The story is remarkable - how a downtown music developed out of decades of cultural oppression to become a truly indigenous art form that went on to conquer the world. In an account that ranges from Kingston's ghetto areas and the cool hills of Jamaica's interior to the clubs and record shops of London and Birmingham, Lloyd Bradley tells the full story - the politics and the culture, the producers and the players, the heroes and the villains - but most of all, the music.
