Dark City: Beneath The Beat

Watch this video, and if you're not sure why you should then read below.

 I tripped over the link to this video today.  I followed a tweet from @djsega to the Kickstarter page for Dark City: Beneath the Beat.  Unfamiliar with Kickstarter, I started reading about the film and how it depicted the impact of the music on young peoples lives.  'The music reflects the state of mind of the city, rough, dirty, hard-hitting... the struggle.' - Murder Mark, producer.

The film shows how vital this music scene is in the community and how far reaching the influence of the music really is.  Prior to being exposed to Baltimore Club Music I responded to the sound as techniques were used in music with a broader audience.  To this day the influence of Baltimore Club music remains an unsung hero of popular music.

The film includes a song that I recognized immediately and I will probably love until I'm old enough to forget that it's by Blaqstarr and that it's called 'Ryda Girl'.  I make no claim to be an authority on this music, and definitely not on the scene.  That's exactly why I'm inspired to help this film finish production. 

Have you ever heard of LMFAO?  If you've gotten down to 'Party Rock Anthem' then you have felt the raw influence of Club Music.  What you should do next is check out what TT The Artist is doing with this project on Kickstarter.  You can read wikipedia's brief description of what Bmore club really is.  Music makes an impression on anyone who hears it and is a part of it. 

This film will shed light on how big an impression this music scene has had on the world of music as a whole.  I think it's incredibly telling of our potential in this era that I can support this documentary being made using technology and social media.  I am thankful to have a chance to do so.

As far as monetary contributions go there are a few different options, and they come with Murder Mark cd's, DVD copies of the completed film, and t shirts.  It's easy to do on the Kickstarter page.  The film needs a total of $4000 to complete production on schedule for the June 7, 2012 premier which is set to take place at the Creative Alliance Patterson Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland.

Even you don't support the film everybody should know where this music originates.
