“DJ, actor, and life long raver” Idris Elba narrates a documentary he executive produced and recently released called How Clubbing Changed the World. The documentary tracks the story of how British youth utilized American music of the 80s and 90s to pioneer what we know as nightclub culture today.
The project uses clips, interviews, and Idris’ narration to convey not only the formation of nightlife culture but also how it revolutionized mass culture on various fronts:
“This is an international story, going beyond the music to look at clubbing’s influence on everything from real estate to drug use, fashion, politics and the drinks industry.”
Pretty interesting stuff! And not mad at the eye candy, either. Watch the entire documentary above.
