by Eduardo De La Calle
The electronic scene has evolved since the time of Kraftwerk and New Order. It is now getting bigger and bigger every year (for better or for worse), but it still remains difficult to define. “Beatz” is a result of three years of complete dedication of Eduardo De La Calle with the help of Vincent Livolsi, Daniel Arasanz and Iban Ugalde. The 72-minute long documentary gives a subjective summary of today’s dance music scene.
As a DJ who travels almost every weekend, Eduardo De La Calle used this opportunity to interview people from the scene. With nearly no money, he interviewed everyone he could in the industry: DJs, producers, and more. His main objective is to show the electronic scene as it is with all its contradictions and divergences.
The documentary features multiple DJs such as Laurent Garnier, Levon Vincent, Carl Craig, Juan Atkins, Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Craig Richards, Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann, and was shot in different cities including Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Japan, New York, and Barcelona.
