Carl Cox, David Guetta, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong and Louis Vega are only some of the influential DJs we meet in this thorough documentary on the history of electronic dance music and its future. Looking back on the secret farm field raves in the British countryside and Detroit after-hours techno parties of the 80’s and 90’s, directors Bert Marcus and Cyrus Saidi try to determine if the way forward for EDM lies in idealistic grassroots movements such as these or with international superstar DJs such as young Dutch hotshot Martin Garrix.
