This in-depth documentary examines how dance music became so dominant that you can find it just around anywhere on the planet.

The first of three parts looks at the basic 4/4 beat that came to define the genre. Stemming from disco, it was then remixed by house, techno, acid house and EDM DJ to form the key sound. Among those interviewed include disco legends like Nicky Siano, house DJs such as Marshall Jefferson, and modern DJs like Pete Tong.

Can You Feel It is on BBC Four at 22.00.
