So I entered the Battle Av scratch battle at SSS the other day (for a laugh) and tanked hard! Being away in South Korea for two years without my decks has make me notice how I've fallen behind all the other SSS crew (big ups them chaps for grinding away). Any who, I figured I need to do something about it so am gonna record some shit every day for a month 1) To blow away the cobwebs a bit and force me to get on my decks everyday, 2) to get me over the dreaded fear of the red dot and 3) I hear recording yourself is a really good way to analyse where you're slipping up

 

Any way, I'm 3 days in, wish me luck

I thought your cuts were sounding seriously fresh at Rye despite a 2 year hiatus!

I watched the first one,but it stopped halfway through and a message came up with a sexy pic of Doob which blocked out most of the vid that said if i wanted to see more i had to put in my credit card number.

 

Seriously, though, no more lulzing, that's gud stuff.

I thought this too, you cheeky funker! I was all, "I know he's been doing some portacuts, but he's hardly practiced and is still rude as!". Plus, Eric showed you a new cut he was doing and you just did it first time. AND YOU'VE GOT AN S9 WHEN DID YOU GET THAT, YOU CHEEKY SCAMP?! Also you spent 2 years having a rad time in south east asian when we were all locked in our studios cutting it up which seems like a sound life choice. ICH HABE KEINE SYMPATHI!

 

In summary, kudos on the vids and practicing, but don't practice too hard cos you'll get too good again and i won't feel like a bossman.

Good idea, I need to do something like this to make sure I'm cutting more regularly. And yeah, considering you've had a 2 year hiatus, the cuts are still dope.

I noticed you really take your hand off the record on your forward releases, like quite far off. Bringing it back down onto the vinyl from so far can cause the record to skip, like in your day 2 clip... I think it was day 2 but I'm not rewatching to make sure in case I didn't notice you've actually got a ball sneaking out of your shorts or something #NIPPLEGATE2017

Ah yeah I noticed that too, something I need to work on. See, it's working already! yyyyeaaaa. I'm wondering if the angle of the Go Pro makes it look higher than it is or if I do actually take my hand off that high. Any who good observation Broke, that's the kind of shit I'm hoping to find, thanks.

Question: would you have called this project "Freestyle a day" if it hadn't been during the month of May?

Yeah I gotta echo what the rest said about your return to SSS... you came back clean an funky as per usual, the rest of us are jus less shit than when ya eff'd off to Asia ;)

Good shout about the hand off the record to high, I can't un-see it now, please stop it Doob!

Something Im trying to work on at the mo is smaller hand arm movements and try to jus use the fingers more, I see a lot of speedy cutters have little hand arm flail so figured it could be good for improving speed on double time stuff.

Be good to see you do more basics - babies, transform, more silent notes/pauses and stuff with the lines. Not really a criticism but it would add that bit extra to your already funky flow.

ETSG 3 is dope, It made the watch words for last nights cuts in Rye - "Fuck attack"
