BABYLON (1980)

Certification15 Our Rating

Set in South London at the start of the '80s, a time when reggae music was at its peak and racism was rife, we follow Blue, the lead singer for Ital Lion Sound, in the run-up to a Sound System competition. Over the course of the story we see Blue clash, not only with the police and racists, but also family and friends as his anger and frustration finally becomes too much to suppress. A powerful and gritty drama with, as you'd expect, a blinding soundtrack. find out more...

Rapper/DJ Kenny meets jazz artist Tracy and, inspired by her commitment, decides to use his talents to escape the ghetto. However the death of a graffiti artist friend presents Kenny with an emotional dilemma, whether to honour the memory of his friend or pursue his own dreams. "Beat Street" doesn't have the most striking of story lines, but the film is really about the musical phenomenon of hip hop (correctly spotting the burgeoning talents of Afrika Bambaata and the Soul Sonic Force, Grand Mas find out more...

ROCKERS (1977)

Certification15 Our Rating

A Trenchtown variant on Robin Hood with Rasta drummer Horsemouth taking on the local minor league Mafia - but that's not what this cult Jamaican classic's about. It's Rastas, ganja and reggae, and it's still cool after all these years. With a soundtrack including Burning Spear, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Third World, Jacob Miller and The Inner Circle, The Heptones, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Murvin and the Abyssinians. find out more...

Great story and a stonking soundtrack. find out more...

The original hip-hop movie and the first to portray MCing, turntablism, graffiti and break dancing; the ultimate rapper's delight, which spawned countless inferior copycats. Set in the mean streets of early '80s New York, the movie ostensibly follows graffiti artist Zoro (Lee Quinones) as he artfully avoids arrest, but really it's all a damn good excuse for a storming soundtrack featuring the cream of Old Skool legends including Grandmaster Flash, The Rocksteady Crew, Double Trouble and Cold Cru find out more...
