This is the most complete and dense document on the art of DJing in existence. This video has been a long time coming... after more than 400 hours of footage, years of interviews and battle coverage, the world famous Battlesounds documentary is finally here.
It ups the anti on the idea that the DJ's use of the turntable is just as relevant and important in the world of music as the trumpet player or the guitarist, and it furthers the notion that DJing is the new jazz. Battle Sounds breaks down this still forming art to its purest sense, and that is, without a doubt technique. We get a first hand look into the development, and sometimes the first public use of many different DJ devises that are now regarded as watermark techniques that have furthered the sonic possibilities of turntables. All facets of the DJ world get proper representation here, from Oldschool pioneers like Grand Master Flash and Africa Bambaataa all the way up to the next school revolutinaries like the astounding DJ Q-bert of the Invispl Skratch Piklz. Battle sounds is an obvious must see for aspiring DJ's and introspective hip-hop heads, and a need to see document of an amazing and under appreciated art form for the uninitiated and non appreciative.
