LIQUID VINYL – A FILM BY TAYLOR NEARY is the filmmaker’s first feature documentary. Utilizing interviews with legendary DJ artists from the dance music world interspersed with special moments from the global club scene, Neary provides that unique insight into a global phenomenon that continues to shape cultures around the world through music. This non-fiction film is a dance music lovers delight as it includes an incredible array of interviews with such music masters as Frankie Knuckles (aka The Godfather of House); David Morales (one of the few to play at the Paradise Garage); Tony Humphries (defined the NJ sound at club Zanzibar); “Little” Louie Vega (partnered with Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez to form the prolific production duo, Masters at Work); Carl Cox (pioneered the rave scene in England); Goldie (pioneered the Drum ‘n’ Base scene in England); Jason Bentley; Marques Wyatt; Roger Sanchez; Mark Lewis; Tedd Patterson; Lady Bunny; Susan Morabito; D:Fuse ; Victor Calderone; and many others. LIQUID VINYL brings together the DJ’s, the people behind the scene, and the dancers from the floor that all ultimately share in the magic of the music. It’s not just about glow sticks and the grinding beat – but a whole culture defined by their love of dance music and an artist that can take a box full of records, mix them together and literally spin the dancer into oblivion.
Taylor began her career as an actor in theater, film and television. Originally from New York City, she moved to Los Angeles to attend USC's film school, graduating with a BA in cinema/television production. After film school Taylor focused almost exclusively on writing independent, feature-length screenplays including "Elixir," "Minors" and "Sex." "Elixir," an action-adventure drama set in the Los Angeles underground club scene has been optioned three times. The third option was not the charm for "Elixir," but it did inspire the conception and completion of "LIQUID VINYL" the documentary. Taylor has also written and directed several short films including "Jenny's Secret" and "Aaron." LIQUID VINYL is her first feature film.
