Attention Scatch Music Fans!
Witness the first ever concert performed entirely on turntables! Filmed November 1, 2002 at one of LA's hottest hip-hop spots, A Night at the Knitting Factory is the coming out party for D-Styles' Phantazmagorea, the breakthrough album by the most influential scratch musician on the scene. The first full-length record created exclusively from turntable instrumentation, is performed live for the first time by the World Famous Beat Junkies! Watch and listen as Dee and five of his crewmates recreate the complex, often dark, and always funky compositions of Phantazmagorea. They will take you on a sound journey whose eclectic meanderings explore everything from video games to the mind of a serial killer!
Also featured is the premiere performance by Ned Hoddings, the scractch band that many feel is at the leading edge of the genre. You may have watched team competitions on battle videos, but you've never seen anything like this innovative young quartet that gives new meaning to the term "musicianship." Rather than an onslaught of battle phrases and gimmicks, Ned Hoddings offers an aural massage of pulsating bass lines, melodies, and electrifying freestyle solo performances that will definately keep heads nodding!
D-Styles, the Beat Junkies, and Ned Hoddings are daring and brilliant in this most important milestone in turntable music. Whether you are a hardcore scractch afficianado or just someone that appreciates good music; this DVD is for you! A Night at the Knitting Factory is the latest, greatest live turntable experience!
