"Groove" is a movie released in the year 2000; it portrays one night in the San Francisco underground rave scene. Through a single email, the word spreads that a huge rave is going to take place in an abandoned warehouse. John Digweed has a role in the movie and also contributed to the soundtrack with Nick Muir, under their production alias Bedrock.


"Groove" tells the story of an all night rave. The film is broken up into segments by which a DJ is spinning and features the real life DJs Forest Green (DJ), WishFM, Polywog, and Digweed. It follows David Turner (Hamish Linklater), who becomes a reluctant raver when his brother Colin (Denny Kirkwood) drags him to the rave.

After being turned down by studios for funding, the production costs were procured by selling shares of the film to investors similar to angel investment of a startup company. [Salon (2000) p.2]


At least one parody of this film was made called "Grill". [ [ Grill - SPIKE ] ] It follows the same basic storyline as the movie but replaces the rave with a cookout and the DJ with the cook at a grill. The cookout gets shut down by a cop wanting no more noise but gets started up when the featured chef shows up with a new box of meat. It came out roughly the same time as the movie and is available on iFilms.
