Pump Up The Volume

No, not the film that launched Christian Slater's career and my new hairstyle in the early 90s. Not even the song by M/A/R/R/S. Something even better! The Chanel 4 Documentary about the history of dance music. This was first broadcast in 2001 and covers the rise in dance music culture from Disco in the 70s through to the beginnings of House in the early 80s and its splintering into different genres in the 90s. Some amazing footage and some great shots inside the clubs of the time. The soundtrack to this documentary is outstanding. The interviews with DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox, Pete Tong, Goldie, The Shamen, Leftfield, Underworld, Youth, Tony Wilson, and Armin Van Helden are brilliant. Download all three episodes and watch it over the weekend in one sitting.
