Netflix has released the preview for XOXO – an original EDM-themed film.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
XOXO is a coming-of-age ensemble film about a group of 20-somethings on a crazy adventure to the biggest EDM festival in America, XOXO. The film follows six strangers whose lives collide in one frenetic, dream-chasing, hopelessly romantic night. At the center is Ethan, a young DJ who gets a last minute slot to perform after his tracks go viral online days before the festival. This is a huge opportunity… if he can just make it there in one piece.
XOXO is directed by Christopher Louie and written by Dylan Meyer. Max Leitman, Joe Russell p.g.a., Christopher Louie p.g.a., Pete Tong, and Dan Shafer serve as producers. Pete Tong also serves as Music Supervisor.

whoa, thie biggest rave in america? better change the preset on your minikorg!!!
microkorg… why can’t I edit???
I used to watch 90210 and Melrose Place back in the 90s so I can’t really bring myself to be upset that there are corny movies targeted toward the teen-college crowd.
Netflix is doing so many things right these days including creating stuff for all audiences.
I want to like your comment because I sincerely relate, but can’t, so I’m posting this comment, so you know you’re not alone in 1) having watched 90210 and Melrose Place, whatever that’s worth, and 2) thinking Netflix is doing a good job with content, doubly whatever.
lol, me too and the show The Heights as well.
how do you talk to an angel….
I’ll watch it.
It will probably stink.
zac efron called
at some point will people look back fondly on this like they do ‘beat street’ or ‘breakin 2: electric boogaloo’?
they should have given total creative control to richard d. james and chris cunningham and made it a horror movie
OMG! Electric boogaloo!
yeah but breakin’ is different – this is bro-ification – bro-lectronica which annoys me
The difference is: Beat Street was produced right near the start of that music and culture. It was all fresh. “Electronica” / rave / house / whatever … all became massive in the late 80s and reached it’s raving peak by ’95 and then turned into a zombie of itself.
I mean sure, there have been developments in the sound, upgrades, but these days Electronica is just like “Country” it’s a well trodden path worn shiny and smooth. Enjoyed by many sure, but. not fresh, dope, or even … boogaloo .
but that Is why breakcore, glitch, even dubstep I appreciate – it is at least moving the ball forward- the ‘EDM’ that most people think of is just watered down trance.
“they should have given total creative control to richard d. james and chris cunningham and made it a horror movie”
Yes, yes and more yes.
“… horror movie …”
Check out the first 15-20 minutes of _The Collection_ sometime.
This looks worse than Gymkata (1985).
what crack are you smoking? gymkata looks amazing
I love Gymkata but it is painful to go back and see the same movies today.
I’d like more stranger things. But that’s my opinion.
The only thing I hate about Stranger Things is the kids.
Guess that’s a biggie….
anything from tromaville pictures?
Xoxo doesn’t capture my interest, but the linked Xuxa promo video announcing Stranger Things in Brazil has really got me amped! Xuxaaaaaaaah!!!
@ 1:14 lol
You know its real music when that diatribe tells you so
Soooooo they are remaking “Go”?
Ill tell you what I want, and that is a sequel to the epic Techno Masterpiece that is Vibrations. #Cyberstorm2016
Christina Applegate’s finest hour.
That description is pretty much the pitch for every indie movie ever made.
“THIS IS REAL MUSIC”
Can’t really compare to this masterpiece.
Anyway, Stranger Things…
Can anyone ID the music during the flashback scene right after the Elegia funeral? When Joyce is talking to Will about his wizard drawing?
wow, this is looking to be a flop like “we are your friends”. cant wait to not watch it
Wonderful Subject: line on this article! ‘Cause – if you haven’t seen it – one of the best things about Stranger Things is the soundtrack, which sounds like some kind of “lost recording session” with John Carpenter and Tangerine Dream that’s been locked in a vault somewhere for the past 30 years.. Awesome stuff.
Thanks for the heads up missed ‘Vibrations 1996’ the first time round looks like just my kinda movie. Re XOXO I like watching these cheesy awful movies and sometimes I shed a tear and remember that i’m a 15 year old boy in the body of a 47 year old man 🙂
I want to tear out my eyes and shove them in my ears…
…so everything will be QUIET and DARK.
Eagerly waiting for XOXO release on Netflix. Just now seen teaser. Its simply superb. Thanks for the wonderful news.
