(recorded September 2002)
This is footage of Woody practicing his set for the 2002 World Vestax Championships in the Woodwurk studio.
The set starts with a drumming solo using a skip-proof drum beat loop and then goes into a demonstration of some of Woody’s ‘Woodpecker scratch’ combo’s.
Then there’s a demo of Woody’s ‘Thumb-drums’ idea, ie minipulating 2 turntables simultaneously with the same hand (one with the beat and one with the scratch sample).
The set then goes into his horn routine over Ugly Ducklings ‘Just a little Samba’ beat.
The end of the set is Woody’s infamous ‘Double tone arm technique’, he places two tone arms on one turntable and rocks the first ever true single deck beat juggle with a bit of double needle dropping for good measure.
With this 5 minute routine Woody designed a set that from start to finish demonstrated more original techniques and styles than any other battle routine you’ll see, and in a time when everyone thought it had all been done. This went on to win him World Vestax Extravaganza.
