    The ISP’s look like a bunch of fat losers who never got any sunlight…  I thought DJ’s were supposed to be cool?  David Guetta and Tiesto might have less technical talent, but they definitely kill it at life harder.

    Now what did I do with that clip of a certain gangly long haired Chris Cartledge getting a scratch lesson from D-Styles that he won at skratchworx years ago? ;)

      sounds awesome if you can find it, d-styles is sick

    The late 80s and through to the late 90s saw DJ battling at its peak.  Because of the competitive nature of battling, no DJ wanted to reveal how they did their tricks and some would even cover up the labels to stop you knowing what the record is too.  It was the skratch piklz which were the ones winning all the battles, however were also one of the first really open up and start teaching people exactly what they do in order to progress the art.  Hip-hop is a school of hard knocks and really is based on exclusion until you earn you worth rather than a nurturing exchange of ideas. 

    It seems only fitting that the reins are handed to Ean Golden as both the Piklz and Ean are both such pioneers in their fields but really sets them apart is the willingness to teach others improve the artform as a whole.

    Gotta give it to Q-bert, he’s arguably one of the most famous turntablists out there, and he’s still got the introspection to be able to joke about what he does. I think that’s respectable.

  • Johan

    reminds me why I still have my turntables instead of an S4 or something like that

    I wish I had the opportunity to learn on turntables. *sigh*……click click click…

  • 4real

    dont you feel silly hitting buttons infront of people after that video?

    • armyofme4340

      Why? It’s just a different technology. They are not even meant to be on the same level. I appreciate what you are trying to say, but I feel as though you mean harm instead of constructive criticism.

      George Duke, just hits buttons/keys on a piano.

      Jel, just hits buttons on an MPC.

      Ean, just hits buttons on a midifighter.

      Daedelus, just hits buttons on a monome.

      The Bloody Beetroots, just hit buttons on a kaoss pad and synth.

      I, just hit buttons on my maschine, launchpad, midifighter, and the BUTTON that starts to my turntables.

      My point is, it’s just technology. Whether you push, pull, or scratch, it’s all a medium for expressing yourself. So my bad for just hitting buttons. Hitting those buttons makes me happy and enjoy music.

      Qbert would be ashamed of your comment.

      • 4real

        Technology always takes a backseat to true talent and passion, a great example of this is Ean’s always at the bottom of the flyer.

        • Armyofme4340

          Why are you even here?

          It’s a thud rumble event, if course their names will be on top.

          So are you telling me bloody beetroots, daedalus, and duke all go on the bottom of the flyer.

          Your comment doesnt even make sense. All musical instruments are technology. Those turntables are technology. If it wasn’t for those turntables qbert wouldn’t be qbert. How are you any less talented because you push buttons rather than pulling a record?

          You can hate on ean as much as you want, but he got to rock out with qbert. Look at what just hitting buttons got him. A successful company, product development, and the chance to jam with qbert.

          Forgive me fellow readers as I have just feed the troll.

          • 4real

            The difference between Ean and all the people you keep ignorantly naming is… THEY ARE PRODUCERS… they made what they’re playing, they can perform it however they want. They have influence upon the genres they play, they have massive following for their music. – Ean is not famous for music – his ‘fame’ is from selling sh!t with free mappings.

          • Doug Brown

            Say what you like about Ean, the technology, whatever. He’s sharing a stage with the Invisbl Skratch Piklz. I trust their judgment better than some dickweed on the internet.

    True talent is when you make things look so effortless, like these guys.

  • proben

    “Yours truly will also be rocking my own special brand of faders” … for real?  Is this a tease for an upcoming DJTT project?

  • Darrin Bisson

    as shortcuts t said – they are the illest. Sounds like Ean has a more structured approach and is methodical when it comes to controllerism compared to the three isp’s interviewed just kinda feel the beat.

    • DJSP

      So true!  Scratching is like a feeling so there is freedom in the expression.  It can be ridge & on beat or jazzy with a swing.  Being able to express that creativity is where talent and persistence (as he would say “practice”) come to play.

    • proben

      the thing is, they don’t “just kinda feel the beat” until after years of consistent practice.  Practicing “in your mind” like the drummer says only works after you have really trained your body to keep up with your thoughts.

    Those white vestax turntables looked fresh. I wonder if that was an overlay.

    • project x

    Whoa. I thought ISP broke up a long time ago.

    What can you say about these guys that hasn’t been said. Legends. And I highly recommend their university courses. Breaks a lot of stuff down and you can make it all your own.
