The pulsating soundtrack to 1 Way Up is now available to download on iTunes and other platforms and features the uncompromising talent of UK rap artist Phreeda Sharp, and the bristling beats of bassDrumsnareDrum and comprises of 19 tracks, 2 spoken-word street poems and a selection of interludes from the film. Many of the music artists also appear in the film as cameos.
The anthemic title track ‘1 Way Up (feat Nefera)’ by Phreeda Sharp & bassDrumsnareDrum is both bold and uplifting, capturing the essence of Peckham BMX. The music video was shot on location at the track and around Peckham.
AKS’s ’House Called Home,’ produced by Chemo, looks at the bigger picture, exploring attitudes to immigration, his identity as a British born African, and a sense of belonging.
Other album highlights include a range of tracks from bassDrumsnareDrum including a special mix of ‘All We Need’ and ‘Pause Rewind’ feat. Betty Steeles (a track previously supported by Pete Tong on Radio 1).
