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

Great documentary
20 September 2006 | by brettster-1See all my reviews

Good, informative documentary films are rare when it comes to electronic Dance music. "Put the Needle on the Record" truly puts the viewer into the EDM scene with a great shooting location (Winter Music Conference in Miami, FL). Not to mention, a nice variety of interviews from DJs and producers, some mainstream and some very underground. This film also gives a nice history lesson about Dance music (more specifically, House music), and the history of the club scene as well. Backed with an awesome soundtrack, this film is sure to please even the smallest Dance music fan. As a DJ myself, this film was very impressive because of the fact that it showed what the scene is truly about, and not the stereotypical hard-drug use that is always associated with the EDM scene.
