British Music

Music is considered a universal gift and is understood wherever you are in the world. It is a great way to help reduce stress because music can be relaxing incredibly to the brain. Music is considered a creative outlet that allows artists to express themselves, and it is a big part of British culture.

The UK went through many different music scenes throughout history. There was the punk scene in the 1970s and the 90s Britpop, and the most popular genre in the British music scene is grime. Grime is a genre that emerges in London in the early 2000s. It usually is influenced by drum and bass, dancehall, ragga, and hip hop. It also usually consists of aggressive, jagged electronic sounds.

Even though grime is the most popular musical genre in the UK today, they also have many other types of genres that are popular as well. Including rock, pop, jazz, rap, hip hop, and folk. Music can also impact society and cultures, including British culture. British music throughout the year has had a huge cultural impact on fashion, film, art, and politics.

I find the British music scene similar to America’s, but in my opinion and personal experience, music is more prominent in the UK. British music is part of everyday life in the UK, especially when it comes to British nightlife when most uni students head out to nightclubs!
