Drum and bass has become one of New Zealand's most popular genres of music - and now fans and frothers can take a deep dive into its storied history.

The trailer for 'Drum & Bass: The Movement' was released last week and it looks unreal.

From Drum&Bass Arena:

'20 years that changed our lives: Drum & Bass: The Movement is a feature-length documentary that captures a specific and intense slice of drum & bass and jungle culture’s rapid acceleration from 1996-2016.

Brought to you by Drum&BassArena, featuring Goldie, Andy C, Roni Size, DJ Flight, Grooverider, Ed Rush & Optical, 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, Drum & Bass: The Movement 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. The movement continues.'
