Pump Up The Volume Video – The History of House and electronic music

After being so inspired by Jessie Saunders, Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley and Farley “Jackmaster” Funk the other night here in Toronto, I thought I’d post the link to a video about the history of House and electronic music to help educate the history to some of you that don’t know.
They are Google videos so they will stream in your browser. Each part is about an hour long.
I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. They touch on NY, Chicago, Detroit, the UK and how Ibiza got started.

Pump Up The Volume - Part 1

Pump Up The Volume - Part 2

Pump Up The Volume - Part 3

Cheers!

Thanks dude - this is great. Been needing something like this for a while. Perfect for nursing my hangover on new years day.

Cheers, g.

this is on themixingbowl, slightly better quality, wmv, ads edited out... it's no divx or dvd rip but it's better than sitting in front google video for 3 hours...

Wow that was a solid house docu man, the best I have ever seen! It was awesome to see interviews with some of house music's greatest influences.

Wow the UK really screwed up House. I kid...I kid ;-)
If you only have time for one of these I'd pick Part 1.

Seen this a quite a while ago, it's amazing. Anyone know where you might be able to pick an actually copy of this. I have tried Ebay, Amazon and others without any luck. Anyone have any suggestions?

heh heh funny to see the ppl who are STILL reluctant to admit that drugs and the british penchant for substance abuse in general had a lot to do with the development of the scene there. Some of them just don't talk about it, focus on the music... but at least that Happy Mondays guy was there to bring things down to earth! good that they interviewed him in a pub, too.

It was really nice to see the bit with the Police superintendant admitting that their actions probably made the scene bigger and attracted organized crime.

Here's another doc that is along the same lines of pump up the volume. Yes, i know this is the house room - but you'll hopefully find it useful.

High Tech Soul - Creation of Techno
Thanks a lot, this is a great little film, much appreciated.

I've been trying to locate somewhere these two titles as well;

The House that Trax Built. It hasn't been released yet, anybody know of a torrent for it or somewhere to download it from?

Also the movie Berlin Calling, same thing, torrent or anything to get it?
