The film, sponsored both by The Grammys as well as Hyundai’s new Veloster sports car, follows 5 electronic musicians as they are faced with the tedious task of adapting to genre’s uniquely different from their own. Some artists such as DJ Premiere and Skrillex, find the experience to be entirely humbling and gratifying, while others like Pretty Lights and The Crystal Method, encounter nothing but resistance as both genres and personalities race towards a head on collision.
Check Out The Trailer:
Unlike similar films like 2009’s It Might Get Loud, this film will not be released in theaters, but will instead see an exclusive premiere on YouTube in February 2012. Now at first this may seem like a strange choice, but ungodly amount of money that the film will likely be able to recoup from ad space and PR from both the Grammys and Hyundai alone, is undoubtedly the key reason behind the film’s internet release.
However even though the film doesn’t come out until 2012, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t check out the songs in question now! In fact, all five tracks have seen a wide release on the internet, and I have in my infinite generosity, decided to amass them here for your listening pleasure! Also, feel free to check out the project’s official website for more fun videos as well as information on the film’s release. Enjoy!
