Storyline

'PUT THE NEEDLE ON THE RECORD' is an award-winning documentary which explores the evolution of electronic music and the rise of the DJ in pop culture. Filmed in Miami during the hot and sexy Winter Music Conference, a yearly week-long event attended by over 20,000 electronic music professionals and fans, the film takes an inside look at a growing global phenomenon in the world of music. Interviews with top artists, footage from events around the globe and a brilliant soundtrack are combined to create a highly energetic piece of filmmaking. First-time director Jason Rem brings an unexplored genre of music to the masses for a glimpse at a movement that is driven by passion, creativity and business. The film has been called "A rock solid documentary," and "An event to savor in wonderment," and is not to be missed. Written by Anonymous

Looks like a terrible place to be...
10 September 2006 | by (This place called... Earth) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the most awful documentaries, representing the electronic music scene. Explaining the history of electronic music and its DJ culture with Miami as a background (WME event) is a horrible mistake. It shows how big of a media hyped, money making circus it all have become. It absolutely doesn't breathe the love for the music. If you want to know about history then try to find the UK Channel 4 'Pump Up The Volume' (Watch it on Google Video!). This doc here is just a 'show off' travel promotion videotape for Miami, trying to tell you that it is the place to be. If you are a classy wanna-be, it might be. I for one, will avoid it like the plague.

Just one honorable mention... Josh Wink. Hes the coolest.
