Movie Info

WHAT WE STARTED aims to establish itself as the defining film of the electronic music genre. The film delves into the highly popular world of electronic dance music, providing backdoor access to a widely misunderstood, self-driven and well-insulated industry on its way to global domination. Specifically, the film follows industry pioneers, like Carl Cox, who are juxtaposed by the journey of a young, superstar of today, Martin Garrix. These dichotomous journeys of past and present illuminate all viewpoints and highlight the momentous and unprecedented time that electronic dance music is experiencing presently and leaves open the question of what will happen next for this incredible genre of music.
