After Party DJ sets brought you by Spiritland

Spiritland are supplying the music for the online afterparty with three mixes responding to the film.

Bill Brewster is a DJ, author, journalist and cultural historian – and was there in the front row during the Rock Against Racism movement. He’s selected a mix of music that was around and inspirational at the time – lots of reggae, some punk and some post-punk.

Hollie Cook is a UK reggae singer and keyboardist. As well as her own releases, she was part of the last line up of The Slits.

Dennis Morris is an acclaimed photographer, best known for his intimate photos of The Sex Pistols and Bob Marley. A key documentarian of the UK reggae and punk scene, he’s drawn together a series of tracks that have influenced him for Spiritland.’
