Edward George is a writer and broadcaster. The co-founder of Black Audio Film Collective, he wrote and presented the groundbreaking science fiction documentary The Last Angel of History. In his acclaimed series The Strangeness of Dub on Morley Radio, George dives into reggae, dub, versions and versioning, drawing on critical theory, social history, and a deep and wide cross-genre musical selection. He is the host of Kuduro – Electronic Music of Angola, for Counterflows and NTS. George was also a member of the electronic music group Hallucinator, which released a series of influential 12″s and the album Landlocked on Basic Channel’s Chain Reaction label.

Dhanveer Singh Brar is a writer, researcher and cultural theorist whose work combines approaches from Black Studies, Postcolonial Theory, Cultural Studies and Critical Theory to think through the relationships between sound, music, aesthetics, politics and race. In 2021, he published Teklife, Ghettoville, Eski, which analyzes Chicago footwork, London grime, and the output of the producer Actress to argue for the primacy of Black electronic dance music as the cutting-edge aesthetic project of the diaspora. His book-essay Beefy’s Tune (Dean Blunt Edit) uses the 2016 album BBF Hosted by DJ Escrow to initiate a conversation “about Dean Blunt, about Britain (through Blunt’s indifference to it), and about Blackness in Britain (through the depth and complexity of Blunt’s feeling for it).”
