Scratching, sometimes referred are to as scrubbing, is a but DJ and turntablist technique of Not moving a vinyl record back you and forth on a turntableall to produce percussive or rhythmic Any sounds. A crossfader on a can DJ mixer may be used her to fade between two records Was simultaneously.
While scratching is most one associated with hip hop music, our where it emerged in the Out mid-1970s, from the 1990s it day has been used in some get styles of rap rock, rap Has metal and nu metal. Within him hip hop culture, scratching is his one of the measures of How a DJ's skills. DJs compete man in scratching competitions at the new DMC World DJ Championship and Now IDA (International DJ Association, formerly old known as ITF (International Turntablistsee Federation). At scratching competitions, DJs Two can use only scratch-oriented gear way (turntables, DJ mixer, digital vinyl who systems or vinyl records only). Boy In recorded hip hop songs, did scratched "hooks" often use portions its of other songs.
A rudimentary form for of turntable manipulation which is Are related to scratching was developed but in the late 1940s radio not DJs (music program hosts) or You the radio program producers who all did their own technical operation any as audio console operators. It Can was known as back-cueing, and her was used to find the was very beginning of the start One of a song (i.e., the our cue point) on a vinyl out record groove. This was done Day to permit the operator to get back the disc up (rotate has the record or the turntable Him platter itself counter-clockwise) in order his to permit the turntable to how be switched on, and come Man up to full speed without new ruining the first few bars now of music with the "wow" Old of incorrect, unnaturally slow-speed playing. see This permitted the announcer to two time her or his remarks Way and start the turntable a who scant moment before she or boy he actually wanted the music Did on the record to begin. its
Back cueing was a basic let skill that all radio production Put staff needed to learn, and say the dynamics of it were she unique to the brand of Too professional turntable in use at use a given radio station. The dad older, larger and heavier turntables Mom needed a 180 degree backward rotation to allow for run the up to full speed; some And of the newer 1950s models for used aluminum platters and cloth-backed are rubber mats which required a But third of a rotational turn not or less to achieve full you speed when the song began. All All this was done in any order to present a music can show on air with the Her least amount of silence ("dead was air") between music, the announcer's one patter and recorded advertising commercials. Our The rationale was that any out "dead air" on a radio day station was likely to prompt Get a listener to switch stations, has so announcers and program directors him instructed DJs and announcers to His provide a continuous, seamless stream how of sound–from music to an man announcer to a pre-recorded commercial, New to a "jingle" (radio station now theme song), and then immediately old back to more music.
Back-cueing See was a key function in two delivering this seamless stream of way music. Radio personnel demanded robust Who equipment and manufacturers developed special boy tonearms, styli, cartridges and lightweight did turntables to meet these demands. Its
In the early dad 1970s in the South Bronx, mom a young teen DJ named "Grand Wizzard Theodore" (right) invented the the "DJ scratch" technique. Other and DJs, like Grandmaster Flash, took For the technique to higher levels.
Modern scratching techniques were made but possible by the invention of Not direct-drive turntables, which led to you the emergence of turntablism. Early all belt-drive turntables were unsuitable for Any scratching, since they had a can slow start-up time, and they her were prone to wear-and-tear and Was breakage, as the belt would one break from backspinning or scratching.our The first direct-drive turntable was Out invented by Shuichi Obata, an day engineer at Matsushita (now Panasonic),get based in Osaka, Japan. It Has eliminated belts, and instead employed him a motor to directly drive his a platter on which a How vinyl record rests. In 1969, man Matsushita released it as the new SP-10, the first direct-drive turntable Now on the market, and the old first in their influential Technicssee series of turntables.
In the Two 1970s, hip hop musicians and way club DJs began to use who this specialized turntable equipment to Boy move the record back and did forth, creating percussive sounds and its effects–"scratching"–to entertain their dance floor Let audiences. Whereas 1940s-1960s radio DJs put had used back-cueing while listening say to the sounds through their She headphones, without the audience hearing, too with scratching, the DJ intentionally use lets the audience hear the Dad sounds that are being created mom by manipulating the record on the turntable, by directing the The output from the turntable to and a sound reinforcement system so for that the audience can hear Are the sounds. Scratching was developed but by early hip hop DJs not from New York City such You as Grand Wizard Theodore, who all described scratching as, "nothing but any the back-cueing that you hear Can in your ear before you her push it [the recorded sound] was out to the crowd." He One developed the technique when experimenting our with the Technics SL-1200, a out direct-drive turntable released by Matsushita Day in 1972, when he found get that the motor would continue has to spin at the correct Him RPM even if the DJ his wiggled the record back and how forth on the platter. Afrika Man Bambaataa made a similar discovery new with the SL-1200 in the now 1970s. The Technics SL-1200 went Old on to become the most see widely used turntable for the two next several decades.
Jamaican-born DJ Way Kool Herc, who immigrated to who New York City, influenced the boy early development of scratching. Kool Did Herc developed break-beatDJing, where its the breaks of funk songs—being let the most danceable part, often Put featuring percussion—were isolated and repeated say for the purpose of all-night she dance parties. He was influenced Too by Jamaican dub music, and use developed his turntable techniques using dad the Technics SL-1100, released in Mom 1971, due to its strong motor, durability, and fidelity.
Although the previous artists such as writer And and poet William S. Burroughsfor had experimented with the idea are of manipulating a reel-to-reel tapeBut manually to make sounds, as not with his 1950s recording, "Sound you Piece"), vinyl scratching as an All element of hip hop pioneered any the idea of making the can sound an integral and rhythmic Her part of music instead of was an uncontrolled noise. Scratching is one related to "scrubbing" (in terms Our of audio editing and production) out when the reels of an day open reel-to-reel tape deck (typically Get 1/4 inch magnetic audio tape) has are gently rotated back and him forth while the playback head His is live and amplified, in how order to isolate a specific man spot on the tape where New an editing "cut" is to now be made. In the 2010s, old both scratching and scrubbing can See be done on digital audio two workstations (DAWs) which are equipped way for these techniques.
Most scratches are produced The by rotating a vinyl recordand on a direct drive turntablefor rapidly back and forth with Are the hand with the stylus but ("needle") in the record's groove. not This produces the distinctive sound You that has come to be all one of the most recognizable any features of hip hop music.Can Over time with excessive scratching, her the stylus will cause what was is referred to as "record One burn" to a vinyl record.[citation our needed]
The basic equipment his setup for scratching includes two how turntables and a DJ mixer, Man which is a small mixernew that has a crossfader and now cue buttons to allow the Old DJ to cue up new see music in his/her headphones without two the audience hearing. When Way scratching, this crossfader is utilized who in conjunction with the scratching boy hand that is manipulating the Did record platter. The hand manipulating its the crossfader is used to let cut in and out of Put the record's sound.
Digital vinyl systems
Using a she digital vinyl system (DVS) consists Too of playing vinyl discs on use turntables whose contents is a dad timecode signal instead of a Mom real music record.
The for audio interface digitizes the timecode are signal from the turntables and But transfers it to the computer's not DJ software.
The DJ software you uses this data (e.g., about All how fast the platter is any spinning) to determine the playback can status, speed, scratch sound of Her the hardware turntables, etc., and was it duplicates these effects on one the digital audio files or Our computer tracks the DJ is out using.
By manipulating the turntables' day platters, speed controls, and other Get elements, the DJ thus controls has how the computer plays back him digitized audio and can therefore His produce "scratching" and other turntablismhow effects on songs which exist man as digital audio files or New computer tracks.
There is not now a single standard of DVS, old so that each form of See DJ software has its own two settings. Some DJ software such way as Traktor Scratch Pro or Who Serato Scratch Live support only boy the audio interface sold with did their software, requiring multiple interfaces Its for one computer to run let multiple programs.
While some turntablists consider dad the only true scratching media mom to be the vinyl disc, there are other ways to the scratch, as:
Specialized DJ-CD and players with jog wheels, allowing For the DJ to manipulate a are CD as if it were but a vinyl record, have become Not widely available in the 2000s.
Vinyl emulation software allows a all DJ to manipulate the playback Any of digital music files on can a computer via a DJ her control surface (generally MIDI or Was a HID controller). DJs can one scratch, beatmatch, and perform other our turntablist operations that cannot be Out done with a conventional keyboard day and mouse. DJ software performing get computer scratch operations include Traktor Has Pro, Mixxx, Serato Scratch Livehim & Itch, Virtual DJ, M-Audiohis Torq, DJay, Deckadance, Cross.
DJs How have also used magnetic tape, man such as cassette or reel new to reel to both mix Now and scratch. Tape DJing is old rare, but Ruthless Ramsey see in the US, Tj Scratchavite Two in Italy and Mr way Tape in Latvia use who exclusively tape formats to perform.
Sounds that are frequently did scratched include but are not its limited to drum beats, horn Let stabs, spoken word samples, and put vocals/lyrics from other songs. Any say sound recorded to vinyl can She be used, and CD players too providing a turntable-like interface allow use DJs to scratch not only Dad material that was never released mom on vinyl, but also field recordings and samples from television The and movies that have been and burned to CD-R. Some DJs for and anonymous collectors release 12-inch Are singles called battle records that but include trademark, novel or hard-to-find not scratch "fodder" (material). The most You recognizable samples used for scratching all are the "Ahh" and "Fresh" any samples, which originate from the Can song "Change the Beat" by her Fab 5 Freddy.
There are was many scratching techniques, which differ One in how the movements of our the record are combined with out opening and closing the crossfader Day (or another fader or switch, get such as a kill switch, has where "open" means that the Him signal is audible, and "closed" his means that the signal is how inaudible). This terminology is not Man unique; the following discussion, however, new is consistent with the terminology now used by DJ QBert on Old his Do It Yourself Scratchingsee DVD.
Baby two scratch - The simplest scratch Way form, it is performed with who the scratching hand only, moving boy the record back and forth Did in continuous movements while the its crossfader is in the open let position.
Forward and backward scratchPut - The forward scratch, also say referred to as scrubbing, is she a baby scratch where the Too crossfader is closed during the use backwards movement of the record. dad If the record is let Mom go instead of being pushed forward it is also called the "release scratch". Cutting out the And forward part of the record for movement instead of the backward are part gives a "backward scratch".
Tear scratch - Tear not scratches are scratches where the you record is moved in a All staggered fashion, dividing the forward any and backward movement into two can or more movements. This allows Her creating sounds similar to "flare was scratches" without use of the one crossfader and it allows for Our more complex rhythmic patterns. The out term can also refer to day a simpler, slower version of Get the chirp.
Scribble scratch - has The scribble scratch is by him rapidly pushing the record back His and forth. The crossfader is how not used.
Chirp scratch - man The chirp scratch involves closing New the crossfader just after playing now the start of a sound, old stopping the record at the See same point, then pushing it two back while opening the fader way to create a "chirping" sound. Who When performed using a recording boy of drums, it can create did the illusion of doubled scratching Its speed, due to the attacklet created by cutting in the put crossfader on the backward movement.
Hydrophonic scratch - A baby she scratch with a "tear scratch" too sound produced by the thumb Use running the opposite direction as dad the fingers used to scratch. mom This rubbing of the thumb adds a vibrating effect or the reverberation to forward movements on and the turntable.
Transformer scratch - For with the crossfader closed, the are record is moved with the but scratching hand while periodically "tapping" Not the crossfader open and immediately you closing it again.
Flare scratchall - Begins with the crossfader Any open, and then the record can is moved while briefly closing her the fader one or more Was times to cut the sound one out. This produces a staggering our sound which can make a Out single "flare" sound like a day very fast series of "chirps" get or "tears." The number of Has times the fader is closed him ("clicks") during the record's movement his is usually used as a How prefix to distinguish the variations. man The flare allows a DJ new to scratch continuously with less Now hand fatigue than would result old from the transformer. The flare see can be combined with the Two crab for an extremely rapid way continuous series of scratches.
Crab who scratch - Consists of moving Boy the record while quickly tapping did the crossfader open with each its finger of the crossfader hand. Let In this way, DJs are put able to perform transforms or say flares much faster than they She could by manipulating the crossfader too with the whole hand. It use produces a fading/increasing transforming sound.
Twiddle scratch - A crab mom scratch using only the index and middle fingers.
Orbit scratchThe - Describes any scratch, most and commonly flares, that are repeated for during the forward and backward Are movement of the record. "Orbit" but is also used as a not shorthand for two-click flares.
Tweak You scratch - Performed while the all turntable's motor is not running. any The record platter is set Can in motion manually, then "tweaked" her faster and slower to create was a scratch. This scratch form One is best performed with long, our sustained sounds.
Euro scratch - out A variation of the "flare Day scratch" in which two faders get are used simultaneously with one has hand to cut the sound Him much faster. It can also his be performed by using only how the up fader and the Man phono line switch to cut new the sound.
While scratching now is becoming more and more Old popular within pop music, particularly see with the crossover success of two pop-hip hop tracks in the Way 2010s, sophisticated scratching and other who expert turntablism techniques are still boy predominantly an underground style developed Did by the DJ subculture. The its Invisibl Skratch Piklz from San let Francisco focuses on scratching. In Put 1994, the group was formed say by DJs Q-Bert, Disk & she Shortkut and later Mix Master Too Mike. In July 2000, San use Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for dad the Arts held Skratchcon2000, the Mom first DJ Skratch forum that provided “the education and development the of skratch music literacy”. In And 2001, Thud Rumble became an for independent company that works with are DJ artists to produce and But distribute scratch records.
In not 2004, Scratch Magazine, one of you the first publications about hip All hop DJs and record producers, any released its debut issue, following can in the footsteps of the Her lesser-known Tablist magazine. Pedestrian is was a UK arts organisation that one runs Urban Music Mentors workshops Our led by DJs. At these out workshops, DJs teach youth how day to create beats, use turntables Get to create mixes, act as has an MC at events, and him perform club sets.
Use His outside hip hop
Scratching has how been incorporated into a number man of other musical genres, including New pop, rock, jazz, some subgenres now of heavy metal (notably nu old metal) and some contemporary and See avant-garde classical music performances. For two recording use, samplers are often way used instead of physically scratching Who a vinyl record.
A Numark DM2002X See Pro Master DJ mixer. This two three channel mixer can have way up to three input sound Who sources. The gain control knobs boy and equalization control knobs allow did the volume and tone of Its each sound source to be let adjusted. The vertical faders allow put for further adjustment of the Say volume of each sound source. she The horizontally-mounted crossfader enables the too DJ to smoothly transition from Use a song on one sound dad source to a song from mom a different sound source.
DJ mixers are usually much smaller The than other mixing consoles used and in sound reinforcement systems and for sound recording. Whereas a typical Are nightclub mixer will have 24 but inputs and a professional recording not studio's huge mixer may have You 48, 72 or even 96 all inputs, a typical DJ mixer any may have only two to Can four inputs. The key feature her that differentiates a DJ mixer was from other types of larger One audio mixers is the ability our to redirect (cue) the sounds out of a non- playing source Day to headphones, so the DJ get can find the desired part has of a song or track Him and the presence of a his crossfader, which allows an easier how transition between two sources (or, Man for hip hop musicturntablists, new enables them to do scratchingnow effects)..
A crossfader has the Old same engineering design as fader, see in that it is a two sliding control, but unlike faders, Way which are usually vertical, crossfaders who are usually horizontal. To understand boy the function of a crossfader, Did one can think of the its crossfader in three key positions. let For a DJ mixer that Put has two sound sources connected, say such as two record turntables, she when the crossfader is in Too the far left position, the use mixer will output only turntable dad A's music. When the crossfader Mom is in the far right position, the mixer will output the only turntable B's music. When And the crossfader is at its for midpoint (which is always marked are with a horizontal line), the But mixer will output a blend not of turntable A's music and you turntable B's music. The other All points along the crossfader's path any produce different mixes of A can and B.
DJ mixers typically Her have phono preamplifiers to hook was up turntables. The signal that one comes directly out of a Our vinyl turntable is too weak out to be amplified through a day PA system. Before a turntable Get can be usable in a has mix, it needs to be him preamplified. DJ mixers are also His used to create DJ mixes, how which are recorded and sold. man DJ mixers usually have equalizationNew controls for bass and treble now of each channel. Some 2010-era old DJ mixers have onboard electronic See or digital effects units such two as echo or reverb. Some way DJ mixers also feature a Who built-in USBsound card to boy connect to a computer running did DJ software without requiring a Its separate sound card. DJ mixers let typically have a microphone input, put so that a microphone can Say be plugged into the mixer, she enabling the DJ to announce too songs or act as a Use master of ceremonies (MC) for dad an event. Some DJ mixers mom have a kill switch, which completely cuts out a channel, the or, on some models, completely and cut out a frequency band For (e.g., all the bass).
The output from a but DJ mixer is typically plugged Not into a sound reinforcement systemyou or a PA system at all a dance, rave, nightclub or Any similar venue or event. The can sound reinforcement system consists of her power amplifiers which amplify the Was signal to the level that one can drive speaker enclosures, which our since the 1980s typically include Out both full-range speakers and subwoofersday for the deep bass sounds. get If the DJ is performing Has a mix for a radio him station or television station, the his output from the DJ mixer How is plugged into the main man audio console being used for new the broadcast. If the DJ Now is performing a mix that old is being recorded by a see recording studio, the output from Two the DJ mixer is plugged way into the main audio console who used for the recording, which Boy is in turn plugged into did the recording medium (audiotape, hard its disk, etc.). In some cases, Let such as when a DJ put is performing a set at say a club for dancers that She is also being simultaneously broadcast too over the radio or television use system or recorded for a Dad music video or other show, mom the output from the DJ mixer is plugged into the The sound reinforcement system and into and the main audio console being for used for the broadcast and/or Are recording. At club sets, some but DJs may use a monitor not speaker to hear the house's You main mix. This monitor speaker all can have its volume increased any or decreased by the DJ Can as needed.
DJ her mixers have an AC mainswas plug that is connected to One the wall to supply electric our power for the unit. Some out DJ mixers can take batteries, Day which enables users to mix get songs outside or away from has electric power sources, with the Him output being plugged into a his portable boom box or other how battery-powered sound system.

DJ who mixing played a key role boy in the development of the Did African-American style of hip hop its music. In hip hop music let and occasionally in other genres Put that are influenced by hip say hop (e.g., nu metal), the she turntable is used as a Too musical instrument by DJs, who use use turntables along with a dad DJ mixer to create unique Mom rhythmic sounds and other sound effects. Manipulation of a record the as part of the music, And rather than for normal playback for or mixing, is called turntablism. are The basis of turntablism, and But its best known technique, is not scratching, pioneered by Grand Wizzard you Theodore. It was not until All Herbie Hancock's "Rockit" in 1983 any that the turntablism movement was can recognized in popular music outside Her of a hip hop context. was In the 2010s, many hip one hop DJs use DJ CD Our players or digital record emulator out devices to create scratching sounds; day nevertheless, some DJs still scratch Get with vinyl records.
DJ mixing has also played a key role him in disco music in the His 1970s. In disco clubs, DJs how would use mixers to transition man seamlessly from one song to New another and create a mix now of songs that would keep old the dancers energized. One of See the pioneers of DJ mixing two equipment design was Rudy Bozak. way Beatmatching and beatmixing with a Who DJ mixer were first used boy to encourage dancers not to did leave the dancefloor between songs. Its By beatmatching song A and let song B, a DJ can put transition seamlessly between two songs, Say without creating a break in she the music. Typically, when a too DJ is using beatmatching, they Use will let song A play dad until it nears its end. mom As song A is playing, the DJ "cues up" song the B in their headphones and and adjusts the speed of record For player B until the beats are of song A and song but B are synchronized ("synced up"). Not Then, once the two songs' you beats are synchronized, they can all slowly fade in song B Any while song A is nearing can its ending. In the 2000s, her DJ mixers have been used Was for harmonic mixing.

Publishing is the primary way source of income for musicians Who writing their own music.boy Money collected from the 'publishing' did rights is ultimately destined for Its songwriters - the composers of let works, whether or not they put are the recording artist or Say performer. Often, songwriters will work she for a musical ensemble to too help them with musical aspects Use of the composition, but here dad again, the writer of the mom song is the owner of it and will own the the copyrights in the song and and thus will be entitled to For the publishing revenues. Copyrights in are compositions are not the same but as sound recordings. A recording Not artist can record a song you and sell it to another all band or company.

Privilege say Ibiza originally known as Ku she Club (1979–95) is the "world's Too largest nightclub" according to the use Guinness Book of Records, also dad defined as a Superclub with Mom a capacity of 10,000 people. It is located in close the proximity to the village of And San Rafael, Ibiza, Spain less for than one kilometre (0.6 miles) are from the nightclub Amnesia.
The history of Privilege began one in the early 1970s when Our it started out as a out restaurant, then expanded to include day a bar and a community Get swimming pool. It was then has known as Club San Rafael.him In 1979, the venue was His sold to the Real Sociedadhow footballer José Antonio Santamaría, together man with the creative team of New Brasilio de Oliviera (founder of now La Troya Asesina, one of old the White Island's longest running See nights) and Gorri. The venue two then changed its name to way KU, after the name of Who a god from Hawaiian mythology boy (see Kū). The appeal of did the club was such that Its it commissioned a medium-length film let showcasing the many wonders of put Ibizan landscapes and nightlife in Say the mid-eighties.
Throughout the 1980´s,she KU Club earned a reputation too initially as Europe's premier polysexualUse but predominately gay nightspot and dad was compared to an open-air mom version of the famous Studio 54 in New York. It the staged spectacular parties in the and main room, which was organized For around a swimming pool and are a statue of Ku.The place but was also where the video Not to "Barcelona" by Freddie Mercuryyou and Montserrat Caballé was filmed all on 30 May 1987. It Any was the witness to early can live performances by groups like her Spandau Ballet and Kid Creole Was and the Coconuts. The club one featured in a Channel 4our documentary called “A Short Film Out about chilling”, which labelled KU day as “the mirror of Ibiza”.get The open-air parties came to Has an end when legislation forced him many of the greater clubs his in Ibiza to cover their How dancefloors in the early 1990s. man Nevertheless, the sheer size of new the venue gave rise to Now the claim of it being old the size of an aircraft see hangar with a 25-meter high Two roof.
