A group of underground sound engineers, travellers, and new-age ravers hit the road in a bid to bring their dance music to a wider audience. Their scheme? To transport their entire caravan community, in its rag-tag convoy of 70s buses, trucks and jalopies to India. Once there, the plan is to start a new culture of techno on the sub-continent! This film is so unbelievable that it sounds like a pitch for a whacky psychedelic film but lo, it really happened.
It is actually part of a wider World Traveller Adventures docu series where a gang of techno dj’s listening to the names of Facom Unit,Okupè and Total Resistance travel to remote corners of the globe trying to bring joy by organising parties with their music.
These aren’t people escaping the soul-crushing drudgery of a nine-to-five office prison with a few weeks of canoeing or cycling. No, this is a full time sub-culture where long distance travel is at the very heart of their credo. Be in no doubt, the sound that accompanies this giant tekno ‘hippy trail’ is fast, electronic 170 to 200 bpm and characterized by a relentless pounding bass-beat. If the keywords speedcore, Spiral Tribe and teknival mean nothing to you then you may leave feeling slightly confused. Conversely, if you can include the words, gabba, breakcore and Castlemorton Rave in a coherent sentence then this uique kickass travel film is for you!
