"The anecdotes are endless."
New documentary What We Started chronicles 30 years of EDM history by focusing mainly on the diverging careers of Carl Cox, one of the scene’s founders who just announced his retirement from iconic Ibiza venue, Space, and Martin Garrix, currently ranked the number one DJ in the world.
Alongside Cyrus Saidi, the doc was co-written, produced and directed by Bert Marcus, whose Bert Marcus Productions is also responsible for such films as Teenage Paparazzo, How to Make Money Selling Drugs and Champs, the latter of which was one of Netflix’s five most watched documentaries in 2015. Simultaneously, Marcus is also in production on Apollo, a film about the storied New York venue that Lee Daniels is directing. WME executive Pete Tong is executive producer and music supervisor of What We Started.
