The rise of French electronic music is one of the driving forces in 21st century music.
From Daft Punk to Justice, Ed Banger to Kitsune, the country has continually kept ahead of the game. New film 'Eden' documents the rise of this scene, featuring portrayals of talents such as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, aka Daft Punk.
As Consequence of Sound point out, a trailer has emerged online. Helpfully featuring sub-titles, it looks to be a fun run through a vital period in French music.
Premiering at the the Toronto International Film Festival this Sunday (September 14th) you can read the TFIF blurb below:
Paul (Félix de Givry) is a teenager in the underground dance music scene of early-nineties Paris. Raves dominate, but he’s drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago’s garage house scene. He and a friend form a DJ duo called—with unfathomable layers of irony—Cheers. Two of their friends form a group with a similarly odd name: Daft Punk. These young artists plunge into the life, building their following one set at a time, dropping out of daytime society to form a community based on the high of the ceaseless beats and bass. There are drugs. There is sex. Paul hooks up with an American in Paris, played by the spirited Greta Gerwig (also appearing at the Festival in The Humbling), but that may be fleeting.
