Dead End Street


A fifteen-minute film set in 1987 Brixton. The focal point of Dead End Street is Jordan Brooks, a young MC fighting to overcome his Social Anxiety Disorder in London's turbulent Pirate Radio scene - an environment teeming with male bravado and the constant threat of police interference.

With research aid and historical consultancy from DJ Fingers, DJ Supreme, Simon Harris and many other prominent individuals from the UK Hip Hop and Pirate Radio scene, the film intends to contribute to the ongoing conversation about mental health awareness whilst shedding light on a sparsely publisised, albeit important, part of British musical history.
