For dance music fans in the US, Mia Hansen-Løve’s “tribute to house music” Eden has been a long time coming. While other parts of the world have had their chance to rave about the film, it’s finally arriving stateside on June 19, 2015, opening in New York and LA before expanding to more cities. Now Beatport has the exclusive premiere on Eden‘s latest trailer, which you can check out below.
Eden first started building hype in 2014 when it was revealed that Daft Punk had licensed three tracks to the filmmakers. Mia Hansen-Løve’s brother Sven, who co-wrote the film, was a pioneering figure in the French Touch scene, and he counts Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter as friends and peers. Eden is inspired by Sven Løve’s journey as a DJ and promoter, navigating the highs and lows of a life committed to house music. (Both Bangalter and de Homem-Christo, played by actors, appear in the film as peripheral characters.)
As well as Daft Punk’s contributions, Eden boasts a truly outstanding soundtrack featuring classic garage and house music from Kings of Tomorrow, Joey Beltram, Paul Johnson, Frankie Knuckles, Octave One and more. Still not convinced? Check out the trailer below, and we’ll see you at the cinema this summer from June 19.
