Storyline

1990. The rave scene has arrived from Ibiza and warehouse parties are exploding across the UK bringing phenomenal wealth to the organisers. In Manchester, best mates Matt and Dylan are in their early 20's and long to be more than just punters. As the government moves to outlaw the scene, it's now or never and they quickly rise through the ranks to join the promoting elite. They are taken on a wild journey from the exclusive VIP rooms of London clubs to the outrageous parties in Ibiza super-villas and the hedonism of Amsterdam. It's everything they dreamed of and more. But as their success continues to grow, they attract a more dark and sinister world. Matt and Dylan start to drift apart as they are forced to question the dreams they set out to achieve and their once solid friendship. Written by Benchmark Films

Well worth buying
26 September 2011 | by (Suffolk) – See all my reviews

This film is far better than I expected it to be. I thought it would be OK having read some of the press reviews, but the storyline was far better, the characters interesting, intriguing and you definitely cared what happened to them as it got darker. OK I've never been to a rave or taken the drugs, but am of that generation - but have been to plenty of clubs, all night parties etc so think they recreated 'the scene' OK. It was very well shot & edited, and some really cool little bits of camera action that take things a bit further on than Guy Ritchie might do to tie trips abroad etc nicely into the rest of the film. Saw it on DVD - reckon they'd be wicked on Bluray! Anyway well worth buying - I shall be recommending it highly to friends... Great soundtrack too!
