What We Started, a new documentary featuring Carl Cox and Martin Garrix that traces the roots of American dance music, is set to premiere at L.A. Film Festival on Thursday 15th June.
The film’s press release states that What We Started aims to “illuminate” dance music’s this rich history, “from its underground inception in the late 1980s in America to the musicians and fans of this genre that relentlessly fought for their rights around the world, both in the dance club and on the streets, to find a safe space to express themselves, to the development of this modern, mainstream revolution that has taken the world by storm.”
What We Started is written, produced and directed by Bert Marcus and Cyrus Saidi, with additional production work from Cassandra Hamar.
DJ Mag broke the news of What We Started, which also stars cameos from Moby, Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta, Steve Angello and Richie Hawtin, plus Garrix vocal collaborators Usher and Ed Sheeran, in October last year.
You can buy tickets to the What We Started premiere via the L.A. Film Festival website.
