AllMusic Review by

Dubbed the first "scratch concept album," Wave Twisters is the first full-length from the man considered to be the world's greatest turntablist -- DJ Q-Bert. As a member of the Northern California DJ collective Invisibl Skratch Piklz, innovation has always been the norm for Q-Bert, a.k.a. Richard Quitevis. Continuing to break new ground, his debut gives further evidence that the most talented record spinners have evolved into complete musicians. Song by song, the record explains a tale of an entire civilization that communicates only through the sounds of scratching. Q-Bert's legendary hand graces 17 tracks, and fellow Piklz Mix Master Mike, Shortkut and other guests come along for a wild ride where nothing is off limits. From standard breaks being sliced and diced to oblivion, to methodically cutting up a female orgasm at the album's metaphorical climax, it never gets boring.
