About the film

Twenty years after techno, house and rave swept the charts for the first time, the director Maurice Steenbergen has gone on a world tour to visit the standard-bearers who were the first people to get the world onto its feet with their ecstatic music. A group of known and unknown pioneers and “old school renegades”, who in their own words describe a music that turned its back and created its own musical revolution. This is the documentation of a group that made the soundtrack for both the candy-coloured eighties and the house nineties. A new world of mechanical sound architecture, repetitive beats, piano riffs and smiley logos. To the sound of electronic music machines, a euphoric time is revealed, when a new drug became fashionable that opened up people’s consciousness to a psychedelic music universe. A tale about how techno culture invented and discovered musicians with a penchant for synth sounds and made them one-hit wonders or let chance have its way as with Moby, who had his breakthrough with his Twin Peaks-like sample song “Go”. Get out your glowsticks and dance your way back into music history.
