Turntable Wizardry Stage 1: Ft Q-Bert, Shortkut, Rhettmatic, Babu & Melo-D


Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is one of the first instructional videos on Scratching and DJ'ing. This is from around 95/96 and was put out with the help from Vestax and Up Above Records. You get a brief discussion on DJ'ing, Turntable Setups, Beat Matching, How To Scratch, A Solo Routine from each DJ with a Team Routine from Babu & Melo-D plus the video for Key Kool & DJ Rhettmatic's - Can U Hear It?! Shout out to the big homey B_ill for all the DJ Videos he lent me back in the day!
