In this compelling new series, Go Go Music enthusiast, Caktuz, shines a spotlight on the giants & resurrection of Go Go music ,The inspiration and rhythm behind some of the greatest music from EDM to Hip Hop. Triumphant and heartbreaking at many turns, the series is both a tribute to the unsung bands who added funk and style to popular music, and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and lost rewards of a career spent in the background.
These gifted musicians span a range of styles, genres, and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of superstardom. Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack, CRANK! boasts candid interviews with legendary pioneers like Big Tony, James Funk, Marion Barry, and Chuck Brown to name just a few, for the 1st time ever.
Despite it’s challenges, this infectious brand of music has inspired the grooves of hitmakers such as Beyonce’, Jay-Z, Amarie, Ashanti, Jill Scott, Wale, and many more world-famous figures. No longer the ‘house band to hip hop’, CRANK! exposes Go Go’s diverse array of artists in CRANK! The Greatest Story Ever Stole.
Go-Go is a home grown sound in the Washington, DC area founded by it’s Godfather Chuck Brown. The term ‘the pocket’, refers to the extended percussion break in a Go Go song, uniquely distinguishable by the band that created the rhythm. The term is best illustrated in the high-intensity live performances captured by our cameras.
The 1st season will take viewers behind & on stage with legendary acts such as Rare Essence, E.U., and Junkyard Band — as well as the new generation’s hip hop/ rock based version called Bounce Beat. Each episode features interviews from the band members sharing their take on the city’s most cherished music scene.
