Turntable Lab Radio invited myself & other scratch enthusiasts to throw down a good ol’ fashioned Ahhhh session and discuss scratch issues facing the modern turntablist. Rafik (Germany), R-Ash (France), Excess (NYC), and Spictakular (Jersey!) were all in da house. Grab the full episode HERE and peep some of the scratch madness below:
Shouts to Snack & Cmish for bringing us on. The invite was especially cool for me since I used to check Turntable Lab daily for the latest scratch records and battle videos when I was first coming up. I think I’ve got every DMC, ITF, instructional VHS tape they ever stocked.
My last name begins with the letter Z, so I’m a big fan of reverse alphabetical order. Here are 25 folks/groups of folks I’m expecting lovely things from in 2011.
Digital Boy & Shark
Brotherhood of Filth
The Boogaloo Crew
You may have seen the stunning Turntable Tricknology Traktor videos from Rafik and Craze. You may have thought, “I hope I’m not the person chosen to follow those videos.” You may have also thought, “I’m hungry, when’s lunch?” or “How come they can’t make pillows out of clouds?” or “Wow! Andre Miller from the Portland Trailblazers really looks a lot like Adam Sandler.” I don’t know. I’m not you.
In any case, my videos are the next in the series, and they were just posted. Here they are: 2 routines + a tutorial video + a contest.
