Watch Channel 4's Music Nation documentary on Northern bassline

The second episode of the new series heads North.

Channel 4 and Dazed‘s Music Nation series travelled to Sheffield last night to explore, as the producers aptly put it, “the 00s dance music that ignited a youthquake across the ex-industrial towns of Britain”. Directed by David Graham, It’s Bass Up North charts the glory years of bassline and the rise and fall of Sheffield’s bassline house / Niche sound.

Watch it on 4oD (UK only, sadly) and catch up with last week’s grime documentary Open Mic. The next episodes in the series look at bhangra and Glasgow’s art-school pop scene.

Still need more bass? Here’s bassline house don (and garage connoisseur) DJ Q in the mix for FACT.
