Dark City Beneath the Beat

"Dark City Beneath The Beat" is an audiovisual experience that defines the soundscape of Baltimore city. Inspired by an all original Baltimore club music soundtrack, the film spotlights local club artists, DJs, dancers, producers, and Baltimore’s budding creative community as they are realizing their life dreams. Rhythmic and raw, these stories illustrate the unique characteristics of the city’s landscape and social climate through music, poetry, and dance. From the city’s social climate to its creative LGBTQ community, "Dark City Beneath The Beat" showcases Baltimore club music as a positive subculture in a city overshadowed by trauma, drugs, and violence.
