One of the worst!
18 January 2011 | by LnineBSee all my reviews

Just because it didn't make reference to drugs doesn't make it a good representation of electronic music. All the awards it won shows that the people who pick the winners know nothing about the subject matter of these documentaries. This movie is more about Miami party culture and the global commercialization of American Electronic music. The roots,history and soul of EDM is glossed over in order to present a "pie in the sky" industry that music execs and some DJ's hope for. The mention of money and how much such and such DJ makes or made is presented more than what makes EDM survive underground for so long. There's little to no mention of Chicago House, Detroit Techno or the Huge underground scene in Europe or Germany! What's worse is the interviews of some of the Dj's. Quote," Techno is the newer style, more emotional? Wrong Techno is one of the oldest styles of Electronic music . Quote, "DnB is the punk rock of House music",,, This doesn't even make sense. Did he mean DnB is to Electronic music what Punk Rock was to Rock n-Roll? Anyway, for anyone that is interested in Truly learning about Electronic music Please avoid this Documentarty!
