Deadly documentary off Dutch TV from 96... In three parts, featuring a segment on Squarepusher, Photek and on Source Direct. The very first one starts off with a female voiceover in Dutch but it's very very short and all the interviews are in English.





^ well well well worth a watch, Photek in particular has some pretty insightful stuff to say.

The first time I saw the Source Direct one it kind of blew my mind. I never pictured them as 2 kids making tunes in their bedrooms on headphones. Their tunes were some of the most mature and deep of any era.

"Documentary from 1993 about the established Jungle/Drum & Bass scene in the UK."

modern times - good looking records (1996)

pt2: http://vimeo.com/51927321

this is really good. makes you realise how big it got back in the day - bukem/good looking cutting international deals with major labels and so on. check tony fordham trying to get an iron in a japanese hotel. so jokes.
Was just about to mention these lol; fuck, the Bukem one convinced me to start trying production on my own and really brought me back to the scene and culture heavy. Just little less than a year ago all of that.

I think the Master Class stuff should count; I still need to finish the one w/ DJ Krust. You should also check out the Metalheadz doc that came out roughly the same time as that Bukem one from what I recall, and the Goldie documentary is very very good tho it's more about his life than it is the dnb scene, as it were.

If anyone knows of a good lengthy doc on Ed Rush + Optical or techstep/neurofunk in particular I'd love to hear it.

Talkin Headz is a good one.
This is the name of it.

Damn straight; just recently started listening to these guys, a lot of that stuff still holds up so well today. Especially tracks like Snake Style. So creative.

^ didn't think "All Crews" was that good tbh.

"Energy Flash" and to a lesser extent "Altered States" are a lot more interesting really.
