Synopsis

A fascinating music doc narrated by Gene Simmons that chronicles the incredible true story of how one visionary music producer and some of the greatest studio musicians of the 1970s created one of the most influential albums in music history. On the streets of the Bronx in the summer of 1973, DJ Herc took the percussion breaks from an obscure album recorded in Vancouver of all places, and extended them by playing them back to back using two copies of the same record. And changed music forever. The songs he used from that album - Bongo Rock, Apache and other tracks from the Incredible Bongo Band - are far and away the most recognized and sampled tracks in hip hop history. Widely considered the national anthem of hip hop, it became the greatest "break" beat of all time and its single most important record.
