Let's get this straight - skratchworx isn't a hip hop site so you won't see reviews of 50 Cent or any other hip hop artist - unless they bring out some tablist specific battle weapon. What you will see is a growing and comprehensive list of battle weapons or DJ tools. Also thrown into the mix for good measure will be mixtapes.
Arguments have raged for years about whether battle weapons are good or bad for the tablist artform. It's more than fair to say that if they didn't exist, battles would be a different event to what they are now.
There are obvious leaders in this genre - DJ Rectangle, Ducks breaks series from Dirtstyle, Qberts various battle vinyl offerings etc. But there are many other battle weapons coming out all the time.
This list can only grow with your help. I can't afford to buy every bit of battle vinyl that comes out - I'll review what I do buy but if you want your products listed here, send me a mail and we'll work something out.
Favourite Breaks - From Baby Cee from the Phonographerz Crew, Houston, Texas.
A quick history...
"Basically the Phonographerz Crew
was started in 2001, but all of us have been dj-ing/battling since way
are in the process of getting our website up, and it will have a full
bio and individual bios on it too. But here is some brief info
for the time being....
As far a breaks go, I love the classics - "Dance
to the Drummer's Beat", "Rockit in the Pocket", "Apache", "Substitution",
etc.... Also joints like "Funky like a mosquito's tweeter", "Memphis
soul stew"(i think that's the name of it). Anything with a funky-ass
break in it that the B-Boys can do their thing to!!!
