The rise of an underground movement in ‘British Asian Sound Systems’ Documentary. During the ’90s and the early 2000s, the Asian Underground scene ignited in the UK. Second and third generation Asian British youth, yearning for a sense of community and identity, created their own nightlife movement. Combining classic Bhangra with modern dance beats and later, drum & bass, these pioneers created an underground culture that both paid homage to their Southeast Asian heritage and, at the same time, was influenced by the British rave scene happening all around them. This unique blend of traditional Indian and Pakistani music with modern electronic synths was captured in Talvin Singh’s seminal 1997 compilation Anokha — Soundz of the Asian Underground. Two years later, he won the highly-coveted Mercury Prize for his breakthrough debut album OK in 1999.
