With more than two decades of experience as a music producer and DJ, Chris Inperspective, our latest guest for this episode of Metralla Rosa, is the founder of Inperspective Records, Eloisa Records and Black Junglist Alliance.

Thanks to his ongoing stance against racism and his conviction that black artists must work to reclaim the importance of black culture in the history of the western world, Chris has constantly found himself in a position of being able to create musical experimentation and spaces in which the cultivation of quality and innovation are the only priority. With a successful career as an artist on the London Jungle and Drum’n’Bass scene Chris has, for many years, been an active voice within a movement that was born in the early nineties from the hearts and souls of young people living in primarily black and socially marginalised communities on the streets of the English capital. Culturally, these musical movements were responding to the limitations and anger arising from post Thatcher Britain, a spontaneous musical genre that promoted cultural diversity and social unification through dance. It was a musical scene that, with its priority of rhythm over melody and its acknowledgement of a musicality present within its sequences of accelerated breaks, inadvertently brought people together in their desire to positively destabilise the status quo in more ways than one.

Join us to explore the artistic journey of a DJ who has touched several generations with his music and to see how political and business decisions within major record labels and the music world affect the day to day reality of the international Jungle and Drum’n’Bass scene. In this interview, Chris and Carla discuss, amongst many other things, the lack of representation for black women on the British dance scene, how the necessity for him to self-manage and self-promote led to the creation of the Black Junglist Alliance and how his passion for discovering new and emerging talents has allowed Chris to face the future with optimism and a spring in his step.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Con più di vent’anni d’esperienza come produttore musicale e dj, Chris Inperspective, ospite d’eccezione di questo episodio di Metralla Rosa, è il fondatore di Inperspective Records, Eloisa Records e Black Junglist Alliance.

Grazie al suo impegno antirazzista basato sulla convinzione che gli artisti neri debbano partire dalla rivendicazione dell’importanza che la loro cultura ha avuto nella storia del mondo occidentale, Chris non ha smesso di creare occasioni per la sperimentazione musicale e per la promozione di spazi in cui qualità e innovazione siano l’unica priorità. Dopo una valida esperienza come artista sulla scena Jungle and Drum ‘n’ Bass di Londra, è stato per anni la voce impegnata di un movimento musicale nato agli inizi dei ‘90 tra le strade della capitale inglese, scaturito dal cuore di giovani provenienti dagli ambienti socialmente emarginati, per lo più popolati da neri. Come fenomeno culturale, questi movimenti reagivano ai limiti che provocavano rabbia e frustrazione nella Gran Bretagna del periodo post Thatcher, con una proposta musicale spontanea volta a promuovere la diversità culturale e l’integrazione sociale attraverso la cultura dance. Dando la priorità al ritmo invece che alla melodia, e dando risalto alla musicalità che si ottiene nella sequenza di pause accelerate, questo genere musicale riuscì, senza volerlo, a destabilizzare positivamente il modus operandi dello status quo in più di un modo.

Ascoltate questa intervista per esplorare il viaggio artistico di un DJ che con la sua musica ha attraversato varie generazioni, e per capire come le decisioni politiche delle grandi case discografiche e del mondo imprenditoriale della musica influenzano la realtà quotidiana della scena Jungle and Drum ‘n’ Bass internazionale. In questa intervista Chris e Carla hanno discusso, tra l’altro, della mancanza di una giusta rappresentanza di donne nere sulla scena dance britannica, di come il bisogno di avviare iniziative di autogestione e di autopromozione abbia spinto Inperspective a creare la Black Junglist Alliance, e di come la sua passione per la scoperta di nuovi talenti gli permetta di continuare a mantenere un fiducioso ottimismo nel miglior futuro possibile.

E adesso, godetevi l’intervista!

Con más de dos décadas de experiencia como productor musical y Dj, Chris Inperspective, huésped de ocasión de este episodio de Metralla Rosa, es el fundador de Inperspective Records, Eloisa Records y Black Junglist Alliance.

Gracias a su activa visión antirracismo, y la convicción de que los artistas negros deben comenzar por reivendicar la trascendencia que la cultura negra ha tenido en la historia del mundo occidental, Chris no ha parado de crear oportunidades para la experimentación musical, y para la consolidación de espacios en los que calidad e innovación sean la única prioridad. Con una sólida trayectoria como artista de la escena Jungle y Drum´n´bass de Londres, ha sido durante años voz activa de un movimiento musical que nació a principios de los noventa en las calles de la capital inglesa, de la mano y el corazón de jóvenes provenientes de sectores socialmente marginados y primordialmente negros. Como fenómeno culturales, estos movimientos musicales respondían a las limitaciones, la rabia y las frustraciones presentes durante la coyuntura británica post Thatcher, con una propuesta musical espontánea, que promovía la diversidad cultural y la unificación social a través de la cultura dance. Dándole prioridad al ritmo sobre la melodía, y validando la musicalidad presente en la concatenación de quiebres acelerados, este genero musical logró sin querer queriendo desestabilizar positivamente el modus operandi del estatus quo en más de un modo.

Escucha esta entrevista para explorar el recorrido artístico de un DJ que ha atravesado con su música a varias generaciones y para comprender como las desiciones políticas de las grandes discográficas y del mundo musical empresarial afectan la realidad de la escena Jungle y drum´n´bass internacional todos los días. En esta entrevista Chris y Carla conversaron acerca de la falta de justa representación de las mujeres negras en la escena dance británica, de como la necesidad de crear acciones de autogestión y auto-promoción lo movió a crear Black Junglist Alliance, y de como su pasión por el descubrimiento de nuevos talentos le permite seguir teniendo un pié en el mejor futuro posible.
