Really enjoyed this documentary! Perfect combination of great beats and an interesting story of how electronic music started from Chicago House to mainstream pop EDM. It features pretty much all the most famous electronic DJs but focuses specifically on Martin Garrix (the super young quick to fame DJ) and Carl Cox (the 30 years veteran who’s been around forever) which is an interesting contrast but drives the story forward in a great way! I also liked that it took up some of the discussions around underground electronic music vs mainstream EDM! Bonus: if you’re into EDM you’ll have a little dance party at home 🕺😁

Great docu on dance music and EDM, almost felt like we were at a festival, and was a fun game of what venue is that / who is that track by. I’d thought we were late comers to the EDM game, but hadn’t really realised quite how new and industry it was and where it came from.
