Pirates Are Alive And Well In London
Out in London, the art of pirate radio is alive and well. The secret urban studios that transmit music from concrete tower blocks to the city, are home to DJs, and station managers, rappers and MCs. This short documentary features DJ Scratcha from RINSE FM, MC Flirt from old school KOOL FM, J2k, Jammer, and Logan Sama. Uncover how they stay underground and away from the authorities, while still setting the new music standard across London. The video sails to the source, where it all started – massive concrete and steel forts that sit at the mouth of the Thames River. Meet the people who pioneered the spirit of pirate, and played the music that London wanted to hear. They set the standard, and when the authorities shut them down, pirate sounds went into the urban underground.
