This documentary looks at five pioneers of electronic music for whom work is their raison d’etre. Between eloquent thoughts from the musicians in interviews, quiet observations of them at work, and images of sweating masses at raves, the image of a music scene in transition is gradually revealed.
Largely shot within the shaking walls of German hottest nightclubs, Romuald Karmakar’s electrifying documentary constructs an inventive sound mix that places us right where the magic happens: behind the spinning deck. Come, leave your troubles behind, and worship at the altar of the techno gods!
