A feature-length documentary film about hip-hop DJing, otherwise known as turntablism. From the South Bronx in the 1970's to San Francisco now, the world's best scratchers, beat-diggers, party-rockers, and producers wax poetic on beats, breaks, battles, and the infinite possibilities of vinyl.

Scratch starts with an origin story. Grand Wizard Theodore (the "Thomas Edison of the movement") recalls the day, way back in 1975, when his grandmother told him to turn down the music he was making in front of his Bronx River Houses apartment. In order to hear her, he put his hand on the turntable, holding the record in place. As he moved his hand, slightly, a new sound rose up. And so, he smiles, scratching was born.

Brilliant documentary by Doug Pray http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0143861/
