Four Beat Juggle At The Same Time!

A DJ that I really look up to is Fong Fong (2012 DMC Online World Champ). He's youtube channel is filled with crazy turntablism video's. Very skillful scratches and editing. The video I made this week is my take on what he does. But instead of doing scratches I found a way to achieve the same effect with beat juggles. Since I'm a far better juggler than scratcher it was only right.
Enjoy!


52 video's in one year!

This year I decided to set the bar real high. I'm planning on uploading a new video every week on youtube. The content can be anything related to turntablism and music. Expect to see a mix of turntablism, video scratching, finger drumming, creative editing and more.

To start this project off correctly, I took Bill Hicks famous stand up piece "It's Just A Ride" wherein Bill (r.i.p.) reminds us all that life is just a ride and we should all enjoy it as long as we're in it. This is the exact reason I'm doing this project: I'm not going to be here forever, so I better get as much work done as possible. But never forget to enjoy it.


IDA 2014 Video Showcase

Check out my last routine during IDA 2014 in Krakow, Poland.

Big shout out to Popek Monster for recording the intro for me. Popek is a huge artist from Poland, so the Polish audience loved to see him being scratched up.

IrieRadio On Fresh Radio 38 *1994 Edition*

What's up good people! This week's episode is all about 1994, one of the best years in Hip Hop history with releases like Ready To Die, Illmatic and The Sun Only Rises In The East. I put extra emphasis on Biggie's Ready To Die which was released exactly 20 years ago and was the starting point for this mix.
Disclaimer: not all songs are actually from 1994; some songs contain the original samples of tracks that were released in 1994 (like James Brown's Coldblooded or Dre's Little Ghetto Boy) other's I used to bridge one song to another (DJ Cam's Rebirth Of Cool into Common's Ressuraction).
Hope you enjoy. Till next week, take care of yourself and each other!
