Martin Garrix & Carl Cox’s dance music documentary ‘What We Started’ gets it’s red carpet premiere [WATCH]
Who better to tell the story of dance music’s seemingly overnight ascension into global prominence than the industry’s most famed veteran and youngest superstar. Martin Garrix and Carl Cox have been working over the past two years to star in the upcoming documentary, What We Started, which delves deep into dance music history over the last 30 years to examine exactly the scene came to dominate the musical landscape today. The new feature-length project, co-directed by Bert Marcus and Cyrus Saidi, offers in-depth interviews with industry pioneers like Tiësto, Moby, and Pete Tong, juxtaposed by bright new torch-carriers like Garrix and discussions with frequent pop/dance music crossover artists like Ed Sheeran and Usher.
Now the film gets it’s long-anticipated red carpet premiere at Miami’s The Regal Sound Beach on March 22, 2018, the night before the sold-out twentieth anniversary of Ultra Music Festival. Directly after the film, a Q&A will be hosted inside the theatre with Garrix, Cox, Tiësto, David Guetta, and more for fans and media.
In anticipation of the film’s worldwide digital release, which is available for pre-order now on iTunes, the producers of What We Started have released a never-before-seen clip from the documentary set to Garrix’s critically acclaimed single, “Animals,” and how the track ignited his monumental career. As the track nears it’s benchmark 5-year anniversary, Garrix has feasibly surpassed his title as an international superstar to household name with his closing ceremony performance at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
