The final part of our 20th anniversary documentary series tells the story of the electronic dance music industry through the words of DJs including Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez and James Zabiela. From Arthur Baker’s humble beginnings in a record store to Laidback Luke’s first CDJ and the birth of digital downloads, we hear about the evolution of music technology – and the ways it has changed dance music culture forever. And, with the role of the DJ moving from selector of music to artists in their own right, we ask: what’s next?
