I Was There When House
Took Over The World

2017

'I Was There When...' is a documentary series that delves into critical moments of music culture, that changed the course of history. Channel4 asked us to develop a music-focussed documentary series for their new online platform: All4.

The launch episode - I Was There When House Took Over The World - explores how an event that occured in Chicago in 1979 forced black music underground, where it would mutate into what we now know as house music.

I worked as a researcher on the project, and loved it. Click here to watch the full episodes on All4.







We hosted a launch screening at FC Hyena in Amsterdam, where house legend Jesse Saunders came all the way from Chiacgo for the party, and boy did he have fun...
