If all members could just say a quick hello in this thread that would be cool. If you wanna add a short description or an entire life history then you can do that too. I'll start the ball rolling.............

I'm Steve, aged 34 and from Stafford in the UK. I've been into hip hop and scratching since '83. I'm an administrator on this board so feel free to contact me or one of the other admins if you need any help with anything.

i am graeme. aka 2ndhand, also theRuler30.
uk resident - 31 years old

first record i owned with cuts on was - rockit, 7" 1983
first record i owned with rapping on was - rat rapping, 7" 1983 :ph34r: hehe

been into hiphop since 83, and scratching was always what interested me. when a band would drop an album, me and sigma would scour it for the cuts, and if we were lucky, there'd be a scratch track.

dabbled with scratching and rapping/beatboxing in the 80's with pitiful kit.
finally got of my well rounded ass in 2002 and bought proper equipment.
been scratching properly since then.
2ndHand,

Hi.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



No, that was my 'quick hello' :p

OK, the name's Chee, and I'm 26 living in London, UK. I'm originally from New Zealand, and I've been in the UK for about 2 years now. No plans to move home yet, but I can't see myself staying here in London forever.

I've been DJing since 1993, when I was in highschool. I started out doing the school dances and people's house parties. This was in the era of the 'House Party' movies, so anyone that threw a party just HAD to have a DJ - that was me. I wanted to be Martin Lawrence's character, Bilal.

When I moved away to go to university, I started DJing for the clubs in the uni town. It was also while at university that I really got into scratching and 'turntablism' (eg trick mixing, juggling, etc). I started concentrating on techniques and whatnot in 1998, which was a good time to start, as that was when the internet started become a genuine resource for scratch DJs. I had no one else to learn from (still don't!), so I basically learnt wrom www.wicked-styles.com and an article I found in DJ Magazine where Tony Vegas basically describes a whole bunch of scratches...

...oh yeah, and also DJ Ghetto's track from 'Return of the DJ Vol 1' - once I could do those scratches, I though I was the MAN!!! :shades_smile: lol

1.)yes, but only about a dozen times, I was fairly new there too.

2.)I use an mpc2000 and combine sounds and loops made from fruityloops or reason too. I can sample obscure vinyl or whatever instruments I have at hand. I record into pro-tools (digi001) and do all the mixing, post production -if any with the pro-tools.
