A history of the Sheffield musical universe in one sentence
In the late 1970s, punk collided with electronic experimentation to create bands such as Cabaret Voltaire, The Human League and Pulp, bands that in turn inspired Warp Records, whose unique taste – Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus etc – has confirmed Sheffield’s status as a musical melting pot, the only city in the world that could have produced the Arctic Monkeys, Otis Mensah and Toddla T.
