Directed by Doug Pray

Pray’s history of the hip-hop DJ goes beyond the hype to trace the radical, revolutionary roots at the heart of true hip-hop in a celebration of art over commerce. The former musical outcast has been appropriated by mainstream culture, but SCRATCH revels in interviews and archival footage of seminal DJs and even earlier influences, plus current artists still pushing the boundaries. With a witty style that mirrors its subject, SCRATCH is ‘history lesson, cultural critique, love letter to those who keep it real by keeping it artful’ (LA Weekly)
