Featuring the pioneers of techno music Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Carl Craig and Jeff Mills, Never Stop takes us into the fascinating universe of techno labels in Detroit.
This film highlights the deep root of the creation, more than thirty years ago, by each of the African-American pioneers of techno music, of their own record labels. It also tells and shows us how each of these artists bypassed the crisis of the record business, even though this powerful movement paradoxically emerged in Detroit.
The Cycles Of The Mental Machine (2016, 56 mins)
The Cycles Of The Mental Machine chronicles the musical legacy of Detroit, Michigan's ravaged Motor City where the great tradition of blues, gospel, jazz and Motown R&B has never died. It also tells the destiny of the young techno artists whose musical counter-culture rose from the rubble to conquer the world. Guiding us through these 'cycles' is the voice of the Electrifying Mojo, legendary DJ, poet of the Mental Machine and spiritual mentor of techno. Creative energy infused with unflagging hope keeps The Cycles Of The Mental Machine on a constant spin.
Featuring original artists, DJ's and pioneers Mojo, Mad Mike, Carl Craig.

The outcome of that lens odyssey is Markus Schulz: Do You Dream? The World Tour Documentary and it takes you, the viewer inside Markus' professional life for the first time. Up close and at times personal, the camera captures his thoughts pre-gig in the ready-rooms, follows him through the anticipation of the backstage tunnels and up onto the stages of electronic dance music biggest, most celebrated events. Nature One, Sunrise, Dance Valley, Tomorrowland, Pleasure Island, Future Music, they're all here, their crowd-generated electricity caught in HD. If you've been to one, you'll want to see them all! From Amnesia nights, filmed from the pulpit to tornado-hit festivals in Russia and two-gigs-in-a-day dashes across Australia, you're with him every step, jolt, rush and drumbeat of the way.
It also records Markus during rare downtime, which finds him everywhere from Vegas wedding chapels to wildlife parks in the outback. Break-of-dawn starts in home base Miami and late night, post-gig crash-outs at his European base in Berlin. The documentary also finds Markus talking frankly about the stresses and strains that 150 gigs a year places on an international DJ and talking about the revelation that touched his personal life two years ago.
Markus' travelogue exploits on the DVD are naturally soundtracked by the incredible, extraordinary Do You Dream album audio. You can see him roll out D.Y.D. floor-quakers, sometimes for the first time and see the floor reaction. Not The Same, Away, 65.4HZ, Dark Heart Waiting, Surreal, Alpha State, Unsaid are all on there and the DVD also includes the full official videos for Dark Heart Waiting, Rain, Future Cities and Do You Dream.
If you saw Markus Schulz play live anywhere in the latter part of 2010, this is the DVD you're going to want to see and own.
