Mc-ing. Breaking. Dj-ing; The three elements of hip hop. Besides breaking, DJ-ing has become a lost art. We label someone a DJ because they are able to press play on a Macbook and speak into a mic. It takes a little bit more than that. You have to be knowledgeable; you have to know what song will ignite the crowd.
DJ Scratch understands this. He has been a DJ for over 25 years. He started his career as the resident DJ for hip-hop group EPMD. You name the artist, he’s spinned for them. On Saturday, April 9th, 2011, hip-hop heads, hipsters, and partygoers all gathered to celebrate another victory for DJ Scratch. He was crowned as the 2010 Master of the Mix, the first reality show for DJ’s.
