Directed by Doug Pray and released in 2001 the film explores the world of the hip-hop DJ. From the birth of hip-hop, when pioneering DJ’s began extending breaks on their party records (which helped inspire break dancing and rap), to the invention of scratching and beat-juggling vinyl, to its more recent explosion as a musical movement called turntablism, it’s a story of unknown underdogs and serious virtuosos who have radically changed the way we hear, play and create music.

Featuring interviews with : Grand Wizard Theodore, Afrika Bambaataa, Grand Master Flash, DJ Flare, DJ Craze along with DJ Jazzy Jay, DJ Premier, Dilated Peoples and many others.
