Carl Cox, Derrick May and more star in new acid house documentary

Watch the trailer for They Call It Acid here...

Carl Cox and Derrick May are amongst a host of big name musicians set to feature in a new documentary about the rise of acid house.

They Call It Acid collects archive rave footage and interviews with key players to plot "the development of House Music from its stripped down beginnings in Chicago to the big anthems of the outdoor raves in 1989," according to the film's website.

The documentary is narrated by Robert Owens and also features the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Dave Beer, Danny Rampling and even Noel Gallagher, while the soundtrack has been curated by acid pioneer, "Evil" Eddie Richards.

Director Gordon Mason has spent 14 years on the project, and in fact filmed much of the footage himself back in the 1980s. They Call It Acid is now complete, but currently has no release date as Mason and his team seek funding to put it out.
