Storyline

A crew of heroes, cleverly disguised as a team of oral hygenists, is determined to save the lost arts of Hip Hop (B-boying, Graffiti, MCing, and of course, Skratching) from total extinction. The lost arts are being oppressed throughout inner-space by lord Ook and his evil minions the Chinheads. The dental commander and his team, armed with the ancient relic known as the Wave Twister (the only weapon powerful enough to defeat the enemies), travel to the far ends of inner-space for a final confrontation with the sinister army of oppressors. Written by Jolon Buchbinder

Wave Twisters transcends the hip hop genre...
3 January 2006 | by Sound_and_VisionSee all my reviews

DJ QBert's conceptual album is made into an animated film that is not only groundbreaking in the hip hop community, but completely relevant in the art community as well. It was recognized at Sundance Film Festival, and has been acknowledged for its revolutionary technology. With animation synchronized to each individual scratch, the imagery captivates and amazes viewers regardless of age, gender, or musical preference.

The film is broken into chapters, and each one never ceases to amaze. If you are passionate about any genre of music, art, or film, you should check out DJ QBert's Wave Twisters.
