Dance Music History
A new documentary exploring rave and acid’s impact on ‘80s Britain is coming to BBC Four next Friday, August 2nd.
Everybody in The Place: An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992 is from Turner Prize-winner Jeremy Deller, and features rare and unseen archive materials, while uprooting “popular notions of rave and acid house, situating them at the very centre of the seismic social changes reshaping 1980s Britain.”
Dance music is a hot place to be place right now. What began as an underground counter-culture has grown, over the last 25 years, into a sound that dominates not only global dancefloors, but international festivals and pop charts alike.
But it wasn’t always like this…
In this new series, in association with Miller Genuine Draft, we lay bare the dance music story, to show the raft of new ‘EDM’ fans where these sounds and ideas first came from.
