“It’s the DJ’s job to get the crowd out of their heads and into their bodies. I like to start ‘em off at about 125 BPM. Once you’ve locked on to their heart rate, you start bringing them up, song by song. 128 BPM – that’s the magic number.”
Or so Cole Carter (Zac Efron) confidently states in the official trailer for forthcoming film, We Are Your Friends. The movie revolves around Cole, an aspiring DJ, and his group of friends who promote parties. A DJ, he claims, requires just three things: “a laptop, some talent and one track.”
Determined to not “live and die in the valley,” Carter embarks on a journey in which he takes on DJ’ing as a serious career. In learning to build his own sound and to be inspired by the outside world, drama begins to unfold when friendships and loyalty are sacrificed for one rather ambitious dream.
