UK Flow

Here’s the first draft from a forthcoming film called UK Flow completed for a recent university deadline by film makers Mike Tyler and Lee Warren. It runs for 15 minutes and features DJ Snuff, Orifice Vulgatron, Kingpin, Stig Of The Dump, The I.R.S., Manage, and myself, Disorda. The main film is still in the research/planning phase, which has involved interviewing a small number of people directly involved in Hip Hop in the UK (in order to learn about their characters, their views, as well as the scene as a whole), this short edit is made up of footage mainly taken from these interviews…
The main film will expand on the topics touched on in this initial edit, but will go much deeper to explore the personalities and stories of the people involved. It’ll also look at the mechanics of the UK Hip Hop industry and the process of making music. An animator is also on board, so the aesthetic of the main film will differ from this edit, giving it an original, defined visual style. In order to make some of the processes involved in music easier to understand for the viewer, it’ll use a combination of animated sequences and carefully constructed live footage…
Although this is a short edit and lacking many of the features they plan to include in the main film, it begins to convey the tone of the overall project, which aims to show Hip Hop in a positive light, dispelling some of the negative attitudes and hopefully making the genre accessible to all… Take a look and leave ‘em some comments, let them know what you think of it, enjoy!

Oh no, guess what? It’s the boy like SickNick all the way up in this bitch and a little bit over the top as per usual. Someone’s gotta do it! Looking good, looking good! I know it’s something I’ve been waiting for, loving the shots of the suspect offices and the MC’s cooling out in a real environment instead of a set. You gotta get me some more of that EdStrong droppin the funny, funny, tho that shit about HMV was the funniest thing I’ve ever heard in my life. I’m also down with the serious tones as well it’s gotta nice emotional undercurrent running strong along each and every interview, 1 thing you guys are missin tho, ME! How you gonna make a movie about this shit and not interview the realest devoted aficionado on the face of the planet? Nar, I’d like to see Prose in it too tho, I read an interview with those guys in last weekend when it dropped and that was pretty fucking serious reading for sure. Can I get VIP guest list to the premiere, I’ll bring Sienna Chiller. New intro music tho please.
