Editorial Reviews

Intellect: Techno House Progressive is an entertaining and educational look at the hard-working DJ’s and producers who have brought electronic dance music into the forefront of nightlife around the world. This 2 DVD disc set features over 5 1/2 hours of music and knowledge.

Disc One includes a 30-minute inspirational documentary about the ‘art of the DJ’ and ‘what it takes to make it’ featuring interviews with over 40 of the world’s greatest DJ talent including Paul Van Dyk, Deep Dish, Timo Maas, Orbital, Steve Lawler, Derrick May, Sandra Collins, Hybrid, Doc Martin, Ming & FS, and many, many more! This disc also allows the viewer to pick and choose from 34 of the full individual artist interviews to view and experience.

Disc Two features the very first tutorial to ever focus on techno, house, and progressive DJ’s. Nigel Richards of 611 Records takes the viewer step-by-step through every level of DJ’ing – from the most basic equipment setup all the way to advanced mixing on three turntables. Also included are 8 bonus topics focusing on specific aspects of DJ’ing and producing dance music featuring tips of the trade by artists featured on Intellect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Educational, Very good March 24, 2004
By BigB
Format:DVD
This dvd isn't one of those bad titles with cheesy menus and some kid walking around with a camera. The director took his time to interview lots of different house and techno DJs to get a wide range of really good advice. At some points there is almost too much information, but I'm glad they decided to error on the side of telling us everything instead of just brushing over stuff. Nigel Richards is really funny on the DJ tutorial disc, and there's a lot of good other parts. Great dvd if you want to DJ or at least figure out what it's all about. Sweet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Buy It August 6, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this video. It seems like it was filmed recently (2002?) at the Miami Winter Music Conference where most of the artists interviews occured. Great stuff with Derrick May, Juan Atkins and other big time artists and DJ's. I produce locally in Florida and this was as enlightening as some panel discussions I've been to but for about 1/10th the cost.
The tutorials on the 2nd video are pretty darn good. As opposed to most instructional DJ DVDs that exist today and focus upon turntablism and scratching (BTW Get Qberts video if you want to learn to scratch - there is no DVD that even comes close -save your money and go with Qbert - you won't be sorry) this DVD focuses upon club DJ skills, mixing, beat matching, using the pitch fader, eq'ing etc.
If you are a working DJ you already know what's on the second video. What is worth the money (even if it was 1 DVD disc) are some of the interviews and comments by the biggest stars in the industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT CHEESY December 26, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you are thinking about becoming a DJ, or even if you have been DJ'ing professionally for 10+ years you will find this DVD set extremely interesting and informative. Excellent interviews with lots of insight into the REAL world of DJ'ing. The tutorial section even manages to be very entertaining while covering everything from the most basic to advanced DJ skills.
Over 5 hours long and every minute is worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intellect Techno House Progressive March 10, 2005
Format:DVD
After being into the "techno" scene since my first party in 1993, this is one of the best videos I have seen describing the DJ feelings. You really get a feel for how a DJ thinks. If you at all interested in the DJ lifestyle or are interested in DJing this is a must have. It have great insights in the minds of some of the best DJs around. Plus Nigel Richards does a great job with the "How to DJ" part. Not only is this for the "newbies" but for those who have been around a bit. Plus he makes learning fun with his comments and body mannerisms. WOW that sounded like an infomercial.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's about time someone made this!!!! July 16, 2003
Format:DVD
man this is a long time coming. I was lucky to win a copy from a local radio station and I was pleasantly surprised. It has 2 discs and the first is documentary style. All the questions you've ever wanted to ask the worlds top DJs are answered. Plus they give some valuable insight to the business side of the scene. Once that gets you juiced then you can throw on the 2nd disc which contains a TON of info that every aspiring DJ should know. It has tips on everything from selecting your decks, turntable tricks, all the way to promoting and getting a gig. A wealth of info. The tutorial was actually more helpful than I thought....much better than peeking over someone's shoulder! And waaay more informative than half my DJ buddies. Does anyone know if they have a soundtrack to this DVD cuz the music in this is awesome....
anyways- get it now and be happy!
