New instalment of documentary series, featuring Roots Manuva and Kwes looking at the South London music scene

As part of New Music Cities, Dazed magazine and AllSaints' series of video profiles of various cities' music scenes, they've followed up their first edition, looking at New York, by taking a trip to South London. It features interviews with Roots Manuva and Katy B about being brought up in the capital, with the latter saying: "Growing up with pirate radio, that kind of connected the whole of London, so there's that in a sense, but then you're still getting that influx of culture coming in. Growing up in Peckham, I'd go to parties and it'd be bashment all night long or I'd go to a friend's house, who was from Streatham, and she'd be really into drum and bass or you'd go to Croydon and go to CroyDub and listen to dubstep; the possibilities are endless." They also talk to Kwes in the studio, ascendant R&B singer Tawiah and Mount Kimbie, who perform a rooftop set - have a watch above, and head to AllSaints' website for full session tracks and the series in full.
