Scratch by 9 Soundware is the second installment in a series of three sample packs featuring DJ Shiftee, the winner of the 2007 DMC World Championships. Here's what they have to say about it...
This multi-format set of turntable loops are intended to complement the scratching found in DJ Shiftee: Extreme Turntablism. From simple, straightforward scratches which vibe up beats to vinyl madness at breakneck speeds, these versatile loops are effective as both textural and solo elements.
As reflected in his impressive track record, DJ Shiftee's skills as a turntablist is nothing short of extraordinary. Along with being the titleholder in the 2007 competition, he is also the winner of the 2003 DMC NYC (youngest champion ever, at age 17.) as well as a finalist for the DMC USA in both 2003 and 2004. In addition to being the winner of countless other DJ battles, he is also a member of the legendary Lo-Livez crew alongside members of The X-ecutioners and a highly acclaimed DJ that has opened for artists such as The Roots, Talib Kweli, and Aesop Rock, among many others. Literally being among the top DJs in the world, the musicality and virtuosity of his performances are simply jaw-dropping.
