5 years in the making – 20 years that changed our lives… We’re proud to present Drum & Bass: The Movement – A feature-length documentary that captures a specific and intense slice of drum & bass and jungle culture’s rapid acceleration from 1996 – 2016.
Featuring Goldie, Andy C, Roni Size, DJ Flight, Grooverider, Ed Rush & Optical, Total Science, Digital, Spirit, Mefjus, Friction, El Hornet, Chase & Status, plus many more pioneers, as well as exclusive unseen footage from our scene’s rich history.
Drum & Bass: The Movement explores how a unique UK club culture rose from an underground movement to become a global phenomenon infiltrating and influencing disciplines from mainstream pop music to video games. From dubplates to mainstream crossovers, to the labels, the tracks and the clubs that shaped the game, the documentary is a snapshot of jungle drum & bass history and how it’s always been much more than a genre of dance music: it’s a lifestyle.
We hope this film can be used as a starting point, as there are so many crucial stories – that have already been told, and that are yet to surface – about our scene’s rich history. Our documentary is just one strand of a complex web of history stretching right back to the birth of jungle.

The movement continues… One love.
