87: It's All Gone Pete Tong (2004) with Andy Reid
This week, we're on SPRING BREAK!!!!! Andy Reid, the owner of the house music label Phoenix Music, takes us to Ibiza through the power of cinema with 2004's It's all gone Pete Tong. You may remember this movie from Becky's first National Canadian Film Day recommendations, and she still stands by it!
We start out by discussing how you actually pronounce Ibiza, then move on to the good stuff, discussing the value of filming something as a mockumentary, and the mechanics of how being a deaf DJ would actually work.
This week's end credit music is DJ's in a Row by Shwab.
