Broken Vibes, the long-lost documentary about Broken Beat
In December 2006, a trailer to a documentary called Urban Vibes has been uploaded to YouTube. I remember running into the French film crew at the Notting Hill Carnival the summer before and was eager to watch the documentary once completed. Years passed and occasionally I remembered it, searched on Google, but while it was marked complete, I never ended up seeing it. Eventually, I forgot about it.
And then today, the unthinkable happened. Bored at work, I scrolled down my Instagram feed and ran across an interesting post by Mr Beatnick. Another search of Google, not expecting anything, I came across the full documentary which is now available for stream on Vimeo On Demand. Rebranded “Broken Vibes”, you can rent it for only €2 and stream it in Full HD for 48 hours! If you need to be convinced, watch
an extended clip the trailer above.
