Scratch & Scratch: All The Way Live

“So I imagined all of these DJs from outerspace and what would their style be. Since earth is kind of like a primitive planet, what about the more advanced civilizations? How does their music sound? So I would imagine what they were doing and that’s how I would come up with my ideas” –DJ Qbert

SCRATCH is a feature-length film/ DVD that 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 recent explosion as a musical movement called “turntablism,” it’s a story of unknown underdogs and serious virtuosos who are radically changing the way we hear, play and create music.

The film features some of the world’s best DJ’s, whether they’re famous for solo scratching, competing in international DJ battles, playing for rap artists, or just rocking parties with the most insane records ever dug up. Check out dynamic performances and interviews with DJ’s Q-bert, Mix Master Mike (of the Beastie Boys) Rob Swift and the X-ecutioners, Cut Chemist & NuMark (of Jurassic 5), DJ Craze, The Bullet Proof Space Travelers, Babu (of Dilated Peoples), DJ Krush, DJ Premier (Gang Starr), and others, along with “old-school” innovators like Afrika Bambaataa and GrandWizard Theodore (who is widely acknowledged as having invented the idea of scratching vinyl in the first place).
