If you want something bad enough, get it! DJ Hypnotize envisioned a massive event featuring turntablists showcasing the art of scratching. To make his dream a reality, Hypnotize contacted us with a proposal to sponsor Skratch Fest. Skratch Fest is a DJ showcase featuring the art of scratching. We were delighted to make Skratch Fest part of the Houston Hip Hop Festival.
Scratching is one of the four core elements of Hip Hop. Scratching is a technique used to produce distinctive sounds by moving a vinyl record back and forth on a turntable while manipulating the crossfader on a DJ mixer. In other words, the turntable becomes a musical instrument.
