ONE TO WATCH – BEATS

“In the summer of 1994, in a small town in central Scotland, best mates Johnno (Cristian Ortega) and Spanner (Lorn Macdonald) head out for one last night of raving together before Johnno’s family move away. Shot partly on gritty black and white, Beats effortlessly taps into a youthful nostalgia for an endless party, and the counterculture movement of the 90s.”

The film is directed by Brian Welsh, Beats is adapted from Kieran Hurley’s acclaimed one-man stage show. Its soundtrack was compiled by Optimo’s JD Twitch, and features music from Model 500 (Juan Atkins), Liquid Liquid, 69 (Carl Craig), Sextant, LFO, LUMA, Plastikman and Leftfield.
