Profits from Acid House doc Manchester Keeps on Dancing stream will go to arts and music community

Art & Culture

Acid House documentary Manchester Keeps on Dancing is now available to stream on on Doc’n Roll TV, with all funds from the streaming fee going towards supporting the arts and music community.

The documentary, made by Madrid filmmaker Javi Senz, tells the story of the house music scene in Manchester, starting with its arrival in the city from Chicago in the 1980s through to the Acid House explosion of 1988 and the following 30 years of its phenomenal rise to today.

Digging deep into the archives, including some never seen before Hacienda footage filmed by Anthony Wilson, the documentary guides you through the rich tapestry of the scene and features contributions from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, Marshall Jefferson, Luke Unabomber, Will Tramp, Dave Haslam, James Holroyd, Krysko and many more…

Filmmaker Javi Senz said: “Everyone is going through a hard time right now, but music has this incredible ability to lift spirits and unite communities, so it felt necessary to release Manchester Keeps on Dancing online. We all need to support each other in any way we can right now, so all proceeds from the small rental fee will be put back into the arts community to support those in need. Stream the film and you’ll be helping support our scene, at the same time you’ll get to learn about Manchester’s fascinating musical history and listen to some ace music.”
