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

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

Playing Use a CD in public, or dad showing a film in public mom is "performing" the work.
Publishing the is the primary source of and income for musicians writing their For own music. Money collected are from the 'publishing' rights is but ultimately destined for songwriters - Not the composers of works, whether you or not they are the all recording artist or performer. Often, Any songwriters will work for a can musical ensemble to help them her with musical aspects of the Was composition, but here again, the one writer of the song is our the owner of it and Out will own the copyrights in day the song and thus will get be entitled to the publishing Has revenues. Copyrights in compositions are him not the same as sound his recordings. A recording artist can How record a song and sell man it to another band or new company. As a result, that Now particular company will own the old recording, but not the song. see The original writer will always Two maintain the copyright for that way particular song. The publishing money who is connected to the copyright, Boy so the owner will be did the only one making money its off of the song itself. Let All successful songwriters will join put a collection society (such as say ASCAP and BMI in the She USA, SOCAN in Canada, JASRAC too in Japan, GEMA in Germany use and PRS for Music in Dad the UK, etc.) and many mom will enter into agreements with music publishing companies who will The exploit their works on the and songwriters behalf for a share for of ownership, although many of Are these deals involve the transfer but (assignment) of copyright from the not songwriter to the music publisher.

The history of did Privilege began in the early Its 1970s when it started out let as a restaurant, then expanded put to include a bar and Say a community swimming pool. It she was then known as Club too San Rafael. In 1979, the Use venue was sold to the dad Real Sociedad footballer José Antonio mom Santamaría, together with the creative team of Brasilio de Oliviera the (founder of La Troya Asesina, and one of the White Island's For longest running nights) and Gorri. are The venue then changed its but name to KU, after the Not name of a god from you Hawaiian mythology (see Kū).

Throughout one the 1980s, KU Club earned our a reputation initially as Europe's Out premier polysexual but predominately gay day nightspot and was compared to get an open-air version of the Has famous Studio 54 in New him York. It staged spectacular parties his in the main room, which How was organized around a swimming man pool and a statue of new Ku.The place was also where Now the video to "Barcelona" by old Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballésee was filmed on 30 May Two 1987.
