A DJ's-Eye View of the Impossibly Complex Art of Turntablism

More

In a mesmerizing point-of-view video, DJ Angelo demonstrates the intricate process of blending tracks from seven vinyl records. "Turntablism" was coined, apparently, to distinguish between a DJ who simply plays full records and a DJ who manipulates their sounds in various ways. It's pretty amazing to see the various elements of the track come together over time, so make sure to watch full screen, with the sound up! 

According to his YouTube page, the records are DJ Noize's "The Whole Mess," Busy Bee's "Got Things Sewed," Dynamo Productions' "Gotta Groove," DJ Spinbad's "Nasty Breaks," DJ LBR's "French Connection 2," De La Soul's "Eye Know (Know It All Mix)," and "Acapella Mashups Vol. 1."
