I Was There When House Took Over the World

An examination of house music and its origins brought to you by the British television broadcaster Channel 4, the very same people who were behind the 2001 dance music documentary series Pump Up The Volume. Back once again with this new project, we learn how the house music genre came to be. It was the death of Disco that gave birth to the most iconic sound in dance music.

This video is the complete series which was originally split into two episodes: “House Was Born” which sets its scope on the social and cultural environment of Chicago which gave rise to the genre and in the second part: “House Went Global” we witness how this sound exploded worldwide.

The film itself features interviews from some iconic artists such as Nile Rodgers, Marshall Jefferson, Honey Dijon, and more.
