Thank you for sharing this link. Very interesting and informative. Model 500 kicks ass. I have some Juan atkins stuff as well. It was nice to see the faces behind the scene.
I have this on DVD, nice documentary!
In the bonus section there’s a part where May, Atkins & Saunderson talk shit about Paul Oakenfold, that’s funny stuff I have a feeling they are not the first ones to speak bad about Oakenfold, since he obviously is a real prick (!), but it’s always fun to see respectable “icons” like these house gurus get into that good ol’ competitive-shit-talking-mode, that we all do once in a while. Immature? no, human.
yeah i saw this a while ago. i thought it was abit rubbish though. i mean all they do is spout a heap of nonsense rhetoric about them being innovators, elevators and stuff. i learned nothing from this film, its just a big tedious pat on the back for the artists, it has no real interesting content. i like the music so i was excited to see this but really i’d have got more out of just listening to some of the records again for 90 minutes. really, as a documentary this is crap, in my opinion.
sweet, good to see a lot of Ghostly International on there, they’re based out of Ann Arbor (where I live). Detroit reminds me of post-apocalyptic ghost town. Its really quite depressing.
