Dan: One of the things that really interested me about Brutalist architecture was what these structures were intended for and what they eventually became. After the war there were all of these very progressive, utopian ideas for social housing which were built across the north and in London. Many of them ended up becoming very dysfunctional, hard places for people to live and I was really interested by the idea of a kind of failed utopia. There’s an atmosphere that you get in a lot of British dance music, especially Jungle, that for me really resonates with that idea, perhaps partly because these environments that I’m talking about are where a lot of that music originated from.
