Thud Rumble

collapse expand iconDescription

Directed by documentary filmmaker/editor/writer Doug Pray (American Pimp, Hype!, Big Rig), Scratch is the definitive film on the history of the hip-hop DJ.

Nominated for the Best Documentary at the Independent Spirit Awards and Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, it takes you from the birth of hip-hop, when pioneering DJs began extending breaks on their party records (which helped inspire breakdancing 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 2-DVD set features music and commentary from the pioneers of yesteryear (Afrika Bambaata, Jazzy Jay), to the artists making waves today (DJ Qbert, Z-Trip).
