In the early 1970s the Bronx district in New York City famously gave birth to Hip hop, but rap music wasn’t the only iconic by-product. The method of "cross-mixing" and "scratching" obscure records got people’s heads spinning, quite literally. The new sound and infectious rhythm quickly inspired street dancers to perform acrobatic jumps, head-balancing and athletic spins – breakdancing had begun. Footage and interviews of the first b-boys combine neatly here with an engaging explanation of the art form’s key role in Hip hop's meteoric rise from humble beginnings to a mainstay of western popular culture today. Along with the jaw-dropping dance sequences and mesmeric outfits, this documentary delivers an engaging and alternative examination of the genesis of the Hip hop revolution.
