Welcome to Day 21 of 30 Days of Scratching. For a full overview and instructions on how to join in please visit 30 Days of Scratching Day 1.
Bonus Video – What to do if your scratch record hole is too big.
Beats used: Pushed Princes and Four & Low by BassVader & Studio Scratches:
Scratch Record Used: Cuts n Drums by DJ Vajra.
Today’s beat is from a brand new Studio Scratches release “BassVader Bass n Drums Volume 1“:
Inspired by my love of playing with live funk bands, BassVader supplies the finest bass grooves for you to get your freakin scratch on! Deliberately created with minimal funk bass and drums to compliment your scratching and give you space to funk out!
I’m digging the feel of these ones!
I used a new blue Serato record and as with a lot of vinyl, the record hole was too big. I decided to record my process of fixing this and share it with you as a bonus video. I hope it helps you!
Todays lesson – stay funky, stay fresh! Make sure your record hole is not too loose. This can cause the needle to skip.
“The longer you wait for the future the shorter it will be.”
