Music Nation: Dazed x Channel 4

Music Nation, a series on Channel 4, looking at cult scenes that have defined British music.

'Dazed are thrilled to announce Music Nation, a new five-part music documentary series commissioned by Channel 4 that premieres in April 2014. This landmark exploration of British youth culture will take in all the key players, fashions and music from five iconic underground scenes – UK garage, Bristol bass, jungle, hardcore punk and Balearic' - Zing Tseng for DAZED, 2014
'With a mix of personal stories and archive footage, Dazed will dive head-first into these generation-defining subcultures to examine their radical impact on British youth culture. Each half-hour documentary will be broadcast on late night Channel 4 and then made available to watch on Dazed Digital afterwards. It all kicks off with a full-length documentary of garage author and photographer Ewen Spencer's Brandy & Coke on April 2' - Zing Tseng for DAZED, 2014
