The fresh 15-minute piece engages with members of the clubs’ circuit and those just curious about this rich, diverse culture that has been a part of British social DNA since the early ’90s.
Created by the production house ‘Anoroc’ at the University of Westminster, it focuses on the core values of youth culture. It aimed to create content that really translated what it means to be a part of this diverse subculture.
WIRED utilises an interesting, diverse array of interviews with industry-leading professionals such as Richy Ahmed, Max Chapman, Jess Bays, Marcelina Wick and Richie Carrera, and other upcoming DJs artists that communicate their heartfelt passion and love for the culture. Supported with nostalgic archive footage taken from popular party destinations from in the UK and across the globe.
Whilst embracing the true values of raving, WIRED also addresses the current COVID-19 crisis and the effects the restrictions have had on the nightlife industry and community.
Norman Anderson – aka Normski, said: “Excellent to see this documentary about our music, rave & hospitality scene and industries. Full marks on highlighting its necessity and the obvious attack our culture is under.”
Director Zine Abdi said: “As a crew, we realised that making a documentary during the pandemic was never going to be easy, but as a team, we poured everything into our project; our intentions from the start were always simple, create something to give back to an industry that has been a safe place, where people can express themselves, belong and exist”.
