The Electro Wars
The Electro Wars is a newly released documentary about the evolution of electronic music, the culture that surrounds it, and what's in store with the future. This is a breaking-edge movie; the first of it's kind. Electronic music has taken over today; I consider it our generations' rock and roll or jazz. It's a huge influence in tons of different genres today. Think about it; Stargate (known for tons of Rihanna's hits) has invaded the Billboard charts, and are considered some of the top producers today. They specialize in electronic, though. You can't flip through a top 40 station today and not hear the influence.
If you are a fan of music in general, this is a must-see. Luckily, you can watch it for free this week at the URL at the bottom of this. My internet sucks where I'm at so I'm only 2 chapters through, but it's great so far. It gives a full-on approach to the electronic music industry, with interviews from the biggest names out there. (Steve Aoki and Skrillex, anyone?) Like I said, this is a MUST-SEE. Watch it here!
