Watch the final episode of Music Nation: how Asian clubbing youths changed British culture forever

See all Music Nation >

Call it bhangra management: in a period stretching from the 90s to the early 00s, a musical and social phenomenon took place within the UK's Asian community. A sound was developed that incorporated the pleasures, pains and politics of second and third generation Asian Brits. From the remixes of classic bhangra tracks to the creation of drum & bass, this period of time encapsulated a movement where cultural identities were announced all through the audible soundscapes of incredible music and the vital heart of youth nightlife. The last episode in this series of Music Nation, our landmark series for Channel 4, is streaming above in full.
