Featuring a powerful cast of electronic dance music superstars, including Carl Cox and Martin Garrix, this critically acclaimed documentary explores the past, present and future of electronic dance music. What We Started is the definitive film of the genre, and includes an exclusive look into a widely misunderstood and well-insulated industry on its way to global domination.


  • Flawed but interesting

    By Jon1354
    This is essentially a talking heads documentary about dance music featuring significant figures in its history discussing how the scene has developed and evolved. The historical narrative is partial, with some interesting insights from major names as they make claim for their place in EDM's history. It is a real shame no female DJs are included, or even mentioned! This film is also a promotional exercise for Martin Garrix and mainstream EDM.
  • Cool Feature

    By Andy Woods (UK)
    As a life long dance music fan & Ibiza regular, I always enjoy things that showcase the industry, music and the island. It cool to see CARL COX & Martin Garrix show the contrast between the then & no, plus the likes of Oakenfold & Tiesto paving the way for the whole explosion of whats now happening. Music is the answer!
  • Such a dope movie!
