Watching a great DJ spin is analogous to watching a professional musician perform. As composer and producer Glenn Towery says, “DJs have to understand the dynamics of music to understand the beat”.
In GV9, DJs, MCs, lyricists, composers and producers talk in detail about the skills and knowledge needed to convert raw sound into new music compositions with unique styles. The documentary offers advice on what kind of equipment you need and the different type of beats. It also explores the relationship between the DJ, the MC and the lyricist during the creative process.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
