A documentary filmed during the acid house era, 'All We Wanna Do Is Dance' is raising funds for its release

Everybody loves wrapping their eyes around never seen before footage, right? As if the thought of fresh content isn’t exciting enough, add that it was all collected over 30 years ago during the iconic rise of one of dance music’s most influential periods. 

That’s right. A new documentary is on the cusp of release some three decades later than first intended. All that remains is to raise the required £25,000 to pay for various up-front costs, including music supervision and clearances along with associated legal fees. 

Inspired by a new era and cultural shift ushered in by the 1988 acid house explosion in the UK, a young filmmaker & raver started to film some of the legendary and key events and clubs, capturing this unique experience first hand.

Narrated by legendary Chicagoan vocalist Robert Owens, All We Wanna Do Is Dance begins in Trafalgar Square as Lord Nelson looks down on thousands of ravers as they fill the monument for The Freedom To Party March & Demonstration in 1990. 

Anti-establishment from the very first frame, the documentary charts the rise of acid house and the global rave scene it spawned; a story told by those who were there and the pioneers who fought for their party right.

All We Wanna Do Is Dance has been decades-long labour of love for director and editor Gordon Mason, self-financed until now, and hugely reliant on the goodwill of enduring acid house friends to help out over the years. 

A wholesome project for the electronic dance music space, the documentary features a slew of trailblazing names, including Marshall Jefferson, the late DJ Colin Faver, Paul Oakenfold, Kid Batchelor, Carl Cox, A Guy Called Gerald, Danny Rampling, Mike Pickering, Fabio & Grooverider and many more.
