Okay maybe you can’t, but Ron Howard did. That’s right, the same man who directed films like The Da Vinci Code and Apollo 13, has now made a documentary called Made in America, based on Jay Z‘s festival of the same name.

In the video below, you can see the old school director is having a bit of a tough time getting his mixing right. Skrillex teaches him how to put on the headphones, in a setup consisting of two CDJ 2000s and a DJM 900 mixer.

Jay Z’s festival features a lot of prominent names from the EDM industry, and he had this to say about it:

“EDM music, people are dismissing as a fad, sort of like they did hip-hop. I think it’s gonna be a bit more sticky. I think it’s the music of the next generation… They’ll buy other music, but it’s like, OK, this music is ours.”
