As I am sitting in my new Lab and cutting it up on the Numark V7's (be on the lookout for the review coming very soon!!!), I can't help but to think of the DJ that got me into scratching in the first place...The Grandmaster DJ Qbert! I remember back in the 90's when he would just destroy any set of decks that was placed in front of him. Or when he would put out one of those wacky and crazy instructional videos featuring the whole Invisibl Skratch Piklz Team (with DJ Q-bert, Mix Master Mike, and DJ Apollo, who left the group in 1993. The group later added DJ Disk, Shortkut, DJ Flare, Yogafrog, D-Styles, and A-Trak). It's not like this is some old school guy who is no longer relevant, as he is still killing it to this day! From juggling, to drumming, to inventing scratches, Qbert has proved to the World that he is truly one of a kind and definitely worthy of being called one of the greatest DJ's to ever touch a set of turntables. He was recently entered into the DMC hall of fame where he achieved the following victories (Some say that if he never stopped entering DMC, he would have possibly won 4 more titles):

-DMC USA Champion 1991 (Solo)

-DMC World Champion 1992 - Rock Steady DJs (Qbert, Mixmaster Mike & Apollo)

-DMC World Champion 1993 - Dreamteam (Qbert & Mixmaster Mike)

-DMC World Champion 1994 - Dreamteam (Qbert & Mixmaster Mike)

I could go on and on, but as DJ Qbert has proved time and time again....Actions speak louder than words...

DJ A-Track - Youngest World Champ - Shuts it down! (VIDEO)

DJ A-trak is the youngest person to ever win the DMC World Title at the young age of 15 in 1997. He was also one-half of the Allies DJ Team consisting of himself and DJ Craze; together they won the 2000 DMC World Team Championship. With all these accolades and many more, I thought I would share a quick video that shows the skills of A-trak and what it takes to be one of the best in the game! (Video Inside after the Jump!).

Reloop Presents: Jay Frog All Vinyl DJ Set [VIDEO]

When I first started spinning back in 1992 vinyl was really the only way to play. I don't miss lugging around crates and crates of records to and from gigs, but I do miss the imperfection of the vinyl media and appreciate (and sometimes miss) all the extra work it took to get to the cue points, mix, and beatmatch an all vinyl set. Jay Frog teams up with Reloop DJ to deliver a dope Electro-Vibe style vinyl set to remind us all how its done.
