This is a real gem, a lost classic, shot on 16mm in a wintry Berlin in 1993, explores the origins of the now monumentally massive German Trance and Dance music scene.
With interviews with luminaries such as Dr Motte, Paul van Dyk, Laurent Garnier, Paul Browse, Mijk van Dijk and MFS label supremo Mr Mark Reeder this now legendary exploration into the underworld of what was the most significant force in driving dance music forward in the 20th century. It contains rare early footage of the 1991 and 1993 Love Parade, and of the now bulldozed Mutoid Waste Company land, E-Werk and Tresor – Berlin’s legendary (and now closed) clubs that started it all in the former East Berlin.
Directed by Ben Hardyment, this documentary is imbued with an uplifting and extremely positive energy – there are rumours of a film sequel in the pipeline, but for now, sit back and enjoy 25 minutes of pure trance music history. Fantastic to watch!
