Speaking with a passion and nostalgia far beyond his years, DJ Isuru joins Beth to share his love for the sounds, club nights and pioneers of the Asian Underground scene. 

Originating in the 1990's and, thanks to Isuru, still going strong today, the Asian Underground defined music for generations of British-Asian people. With Isuru behind the decks, his monthly club night, Mishti Dance has expanded the scene, showcasing subversive and innovative performances from Asian drag queens, burlesque dancers and contemporary artists.
