The ascent of electronic music culture has been one of the defining societal developments of the century, but we have yet to see that story told on the big screen. When Alexei Barrionuevo stepped away from his career as a journalist, he set off with the intention of taking on that challenge. The result is the insightful forthcoming documentary Waiting for the Drop.
The feature, which boasts unprecedented access to artists like Avicii, Tiësto, Hardwell, Fatboy Slim and Claude VonStroke, charts the explosive success of "EDM" and the emergence of the "Superstar DJ" over the past decade. It approaches important questions about our culture with both a journalistic eye and an insider's perspective - from festival stages to Balearic beaches. Get wise, kids, check it out.
