Looks like there are many people interested not only to listen, but to know what they're listening smile.gif
Want to link you to some documentaries you may like.

Concentric Beats (2001)

QUOTE
Concentric Beats is a documentary film about the US drum'n'bass music experience, focusing mainly on three cities: Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. Besides featuring club and rave footage, the narrative of the film is carried through by over 70 interviews with some of the main protagonists of the drum'n'bass scene in the US as well as abroad. We listen as DJs, producers, club promoters, record label executives, dub-plate manufacturers, music journalists, and fans all speak on the history of the US drum'n'bass movement


Note: can be found on Demonoid

Modulations - Cinema For the Ear (1998)

Seems like the best electronic music documentary ever made sweat.gif

QUOTE
The evolution of electronic music. The innovative programme delves into history... To those inspirational moments where machines and humans fused to create the elementary roots of much of today's sounds.

This programme cuts between the avantgarde composers such as the innovative synthesizer style of Kraftwerk, Afrika Bambaataa's electrofunk, Roni Size and his drum and bass landmarks, and the likes of Photek, one of the most original jungle composers.

A truly epic portrait of the phenomenon of electronic music with performances and interviews from the best in the business


Better Living Through Circuitry (1999)

QUOTE
The effort to categorize and document the history of electronic dance music has intensified over the past few years, resulting in countless CD compilations and several cinematic documentaries. The latest is Better Living Through Circuitry, and the soundtrack suggests an attempt to link the current sounds to the industrial music movement of the 1980s. Representing the old school are Psychic TV and Meat Beat Manifesto, the latter of which shows up with "Money for E," a 1987 track from their prolific (and arguably most interesting) foray into acid-house dance music. Although the disc is weighted down with label-affiliated B-list tracks from Keoki and Electric Skychurch, the inclusion of Roni Size's revolutionary "Brown Paper Bag" and Future Sound of London's classic "Expander (Remix)" lend the collection a solid air of credibility. Although trying to capture the essence of the electronic dance underground in a mere 70 minutes is an impossible task, Better Living Through Circuitry makes an enjoyable and interesting introduction. — David Prince


If you can't find any of them - tell me, i'll help.

Also, can someone recomend any documentaries about DnB? (i know about 'Early Jungle Documentary' smile.gif )

It's about Richie Hawtin and the old school Detroit scene. It's really a must see!

Put the Needle on the Record - was that the one shot entirely in Ibiza?
I vaguely remember watching one that was more behind the scenes and showed more of the club culture than most.

A friend of mine went to see a film screening all about Tresor & the Berlin - Detroit connection. He said it was amazing but sadly it doesn't appear to have been realised on DVD or anything. I would happily saw off one of my legs to get hold of it.

The Best and only documentary i have seen about Electronic music is: The History of house Music. thumbsup.gif
they showed it on BBC several years back.
It takes the trip from Early Chicago House & Detroit Techno to modern times. If you haven't checked this one out its absolutely essential! preved.gif

I could not find a torrent file, but somebody uploaded the whole documentary on youtube.

Here's part one:

That movie is great... love the "badger" embodiment of his drug addiction. sooooo funny.

There's actually a good story about the making of that film...
Apperently Paul Kaye, who played the lead role got a little too into the Ibiza party scene while they were filming and would disappear for days on end, driving the director crazy!!!!!

Maybe you already know but there's a whole section dedicated to this stuff here.

Unfortunately you missed the Speaking in Code freeleech last month. But if you have enough buffer on your ratio it might be worth downloading here - I find seeding vids is pretty helpful on the long term.
