Sorry, no Free Beat Friday today, still sorting out the new studio situation. Instead we drop some scratch video inspiration on you.
You may remember earlier this year Short-e was commissioned by the BBC to record scratching for the BBC 1 TV show “Walk On The Wildside”.
Short-e recorded the process of recording the cuts on video so you can see exactly what went on.
Short-e freestyled mostly then went back over any mistakes and dropped in new cuts. This video shows 1 take. 3 takes were recorded for each track and then the best sent to the BBC so they could chop it up how they wanted.
The instrumental backing track (Kanye West / Estelle – American Boy) was cleared internally for use by the BBC for royalties etc.
Watch out for more behind the scenes footage of the scratching badgers in the studio!
