Description

Slip between the beats with us and discover how the Bay Area rave scene, of the late 80’s and early 90’s, was a vibrant revolution of culture along the lines of the beat generation, hippies, punk, and disco. This fascinating story illustrates the way this musical movement exploded rave onto the San Francisco Bay Area. Told through the personal experiences of 40 different DJs, musicians, promoters and ravers, it traces the birth of this new scene and how it quickly became a major influence in the lives of many who discovered it. 

From DJ Harvey’s Tonka UK influence, to Doc Martin dropping SF’s first house tracks, this film follows the growth of the scene from 1989 to 1999. Through the pre rave club parties, to the early renegade break in warehouse parties, to “massives” to the legendary Sunset parties. This amazing film is a healthy reminder of the impact that musical subculture can have in all of us. -Jeff Ross
