Take crash course in the last 25 years of French electronic music – from Detroit to Daft Punk to Air to Cassius – thanks to French Waves.

From the site:

“Julian Starke’s documentary offers a take on French electro from the younger generation’s perspective. He tracks down the American roots of techno and house music, brings the era of illegal raves to life, and tells the extraordinary tale of French Touch, a music style that has played a pivotal role in the recognition of electronic music throughout the world.

Most importantly, he showcases the newest wave of French artists, exploring how the heirs of this modern history are making it their own.”
