Trip hop (sometimes used synonymously with “downtempo”) is a musical genre that originated in the early 1990s in the United Kingdom, especially Bristol. It has been described as “a fusion of hip hop and electronica until neither genre is recognizable”, and may incorporate a variety of styles, including funk, dub, soul, psychedelia, R&B, and house, as well as other forms of electronic music. Trip hop can be highly experimental. Deriving from later idioms of acid house, the term was first used by the British music media to describe the more experimental variant of breakbeat emerging from the Bristol Sound scene in the early 1990s, which contained influences of soul, funk, and jazz. It was pioneered by acts like Massive Attack, Tricky, and Portishead. Trip hop achieved commercial success in the 1990s, and has been described as “Europe’s alternative choice in the second half of the '90s”.

El Nitsa es uno de los primeros clubs de música electrónica de Barcelona, y aunque aún permanece en activo, el documental trata sobre los orígenes de la sala. De cómo en una sala pequeña comenzó a gestarse lo que a día de hoy se conoce en Barcelona como cultura de clubs. Hoy en día el club es uno de los pesos pesados en Europa, pero en el documental explicaremos cómo se gestó todo. Cómo comenzaron con actuaciones en directo de grupos de música pop y fueron mutando y orientando su programación hacia el tipo de música electrónica emergente. Uno de los objetivos del documental es explicar que en aquella sala pequeña y oscura se gestaron una serie de elementos que, en conjunción, adquirieron una importancia capital para el nacimiento de la escena de clubs. Estos elementos ya existían en Barcelona, pero en el pequeño Nitsa de la Plaça Joan Llongueras se combinaron de una manera especial para acabar explotando.
