As the hitherto isolated hip-hop scene in South Bronx is leapt upon by producers, critics and art collectors alike, new hip-hop singles are generated at a rate of knots in the early 80s, and create new movements around the globe, but as the profit is taken out of the hands of the creators of the innovative artform, some try to claim it back. We also hear some music from Irish and Jewish communities, hardcore punk and Philip Glass.
