I know how it is. Bank Holiday weekend, you've pushed the boat out a little too far, and you're struggling to get your brain, let alone your body, in gear.
What you need is something to watch and chill out with, and being into music (well I assume that's why you are here) a decent music documentary is the perfect cure for over indulgence – but how about two?
A few months ago a film popped up on Vimeo by Chicago film maker Sonali Aggarwal that caused quite a stir. A fantastic documentary on Juke/Footwork music. But what seems to have gone under most peoples radars is the fact Aggarwal also made an excellent documentary on Hip Hop.
Both are linked here: the first film, above, "Whatever happened to Hip Hop" is a fantastic look at where hip hop came from, what it became and the moves afoot to take it back. The second, below, "From Jack To Juke: 25 years of Gheto House" is a fine retrospective of Ghetto House in its many forms.
Even if you are not into either genre they are interesting and educational documentary’s, I'm in no way a big fan of juke but I was glued to the screen from start to end.
The best bit though is if you have a Vimeo account and are logged in you can download them
enjoy, and support as much as you can.
