A documentary about turntablism from the South Bronx in the 1970s to the global base it currently possesses. The world’s best DJs, beat-diggers, party-rockers, and producers wax poetic on beats, breaks, battles, and the infinite possibilities of vinyl. Featuring DJ Q-bert, Mix Master Mike, Rob Swift, The X-ecutioners, Cut Chemist, DJ NuMark, DJ Craze, DJ Z-Trip, Jazzy Jay, DJ Shadow, The Bullet Proof Space Travelers, DJ Babu, DJ Krush, Madlib, DJ Premier, Peanut Butter Wolf, Kool Herc, Grand Mixer DXT, Afrika Bambaataa and, the originator himself, Grand Wizard Theodore. Vuh-vuh-vu-vu-vuh…Vibe on it.

Quote from the film: “The turntable was originally something you walked away from when you put a record on, you never thought to sit there and look at it and think, ‘What else can I do with this?’ You never were supposed to touch the record; your parents were like don’t touch the turntable, don’t touch the record: you’re gonna ruin it!”
