Groove is a 2000 American film that portrays one night in the San Francisco underground rave scene. Through a single email, the word spreads that a huge rave is going to take place in an abandoned warehouse. John Digweed has a cameo as himself and also contributed to the soundtrack with Nick Muir, under their production alias Bedrock.

Plot[edit]

Groove tells the story of an all-night rave. The film is broken up into segments by which DJ is spinning and features real-life DJs DJ Forest Green, WishFM, Polywog, and Digweed. It follows David Turner (Hamish Linklater), who becomes a reluctant raver when his brother Colin (Denny Kirkwood) drags him to the rave.

Cast[edit]

Funding[edit]

After being turned down by studios for funding, production costs were met by selling shares of the film to investors similar to angel investment of a startup company.[1]
