Bristol Features in Resident Advisor Film
Resident Advisor marks its video debut and the start of a brand new series with a trip to arguably the most creative city in electronic music right now.
Real Scenes is a series of films, supported by and conceived with Bench, in which they explore the musical, cultural and creative climate within electronic music’s key destinations. RA look at the role singular figureheads—producers, DJs, promoters—play in making their city’s music scene a point of world-wide interest. They also look at places, spaces and inspirations, seeking out the essence of what gives these hyper-local scenes a truly global resonance.

The eyes of the world have turned to the UK in recent years and have found some of the most exciting, genre-defying young artists to emerge from electronic music. But while London’s scene can be fractious and hard to pin down, there seems to be something in the air in Bristol that unites its participants. Whether they’re creating dubstep, house, techno or something else entirely, the cross-pollination in Bristol is unique. In RA’s first official entry into video, they journied to Bristol to explore how the city has flourished in recent years, discovering why this small metropolis is one of the most influential electronic music outposts in the world today.
