Synopsis

Doc'n Roll Film Festival presents the London Premiere of Isaac Reeder's Hype Master, introduced by a screeing of Justin Bayley's short doc Grime Waltham Forest. The screenings will be followed by a Q&A with Isaac.


Hype Master:


Music was in his blood. Growing up around like-minded individuals they set out to pioneer a whole new musical genre: Grime. From the streets of Bow, East London, to sold-out venues across the world, Shaun Lewis aka Stormin, touched countless lives through his words, his sound and his very being. He started his career as an underground Grime artist then transitioning into one of the biggest Drum and Bass MC’s in the world, Stormin saw no bounds to his amazing career, until he was given news that would rock himself, his family and the music scene; he was diagnosed with cancer. During a sweeping journey from the depths of the underground music scene to a meteoric rise through the electronic music industry, Hype Master is an intimate, humanistic portrait that seeks to understand an artist who attempted to be all things to fans, friends and especially his family.


Grime Waltham Forest by Justin Bayley:


Grime Waltham Forest shines a light on grime artists and producers from the borough who contributed to the creation of the genre back in the noughties. It explores how and why the genre emerged and its impact then and for today's younger generation. The film was co-created with a group of 16-25-year-olds and includes 1-1 interviews with a number of grime veterans, panel discussions, and archive footage.
