Tanner Seebaum lived his life to the fullest and was an inspiration to many because he refused to let brain cancer get in the way of living his life. In the final year of Tanner’s life, when faced with a terminal diagnosis, he chose to make every minute count and to vigorously pursue his love of electronic music. In doing this, Tanner inspired a documentary film which was made after he passed away. The film, titled Beats4Tanner premiered at the Las Vegas Film Festival in August 2015.
Beats4Tanner is a feature documentary detailing the life story of Tanner Seebaum (aka DJ Seebaum). At age 15 Tanner’s brain cancer has come out of remission in deadly fashion and he begins his journey as an electronic music DJ. His last wish before he dies is to play one of the biggest pool parties on earth during Electronic Daisy Carnival (EDC) at Rehab Day Club, a legendary pool party that takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas. The original story made the front cover of the Las Vegas Sun in 2013 and also was featured in many music publications.
Beats4Tanner features music and interviews with some of the biggest names in electronic music including Datsik, Destructo, Downlink and Krewella. The film also features multiple tracks from the Firepower Records catalogue and as well as tracks from Play Me Records and three tracks from Grammy Award winner, Skrillex.
