This 60 minute musical collage features the phenomenal turntable skills of DJ Faust. The scratching, beats and echoes are performed by hand! This was the first ever full length album released by a turntablist artist. Features guest appearances by 3xDMC Champion DJ Craze, Shotgun (former Goodie Mob dj) and female dj Shortee

DJ Faust presents a total of 27 monsterous scratching tracks on his debut album Man or Myth? Faust, able to adapt turntables as a musical instrument, creates a dimension of sound and imagination that teleports the listener into a surreal world of music, the world of the turntablist. Man or Myth was constructed without any samplers, effects or sequencers. "Echoes were laid like a pause tape - turn the volume down, re-record, turn it down more, re-record etc." explains Faust. The result is a string of musical compositions that bombard the listener with a fury of instruments, sound effects and basslines created by two turntables and a 8-track recorder-all orchestrated and manipulated by the hands of a hip-hop magician.

Also featured on the album are guest appearances by other members from the Third World Citizens collective; female deejay Shortee - drummer for 15 years and a black belt, Miami's DJ Craze - Zulu DJ Champ 96 & 97, and rap group Goodie Mob's deejay Shotgun. All three contribute selections to the album that will assist in this projects' success in 98 and beyond. Along with the arrival of the new millenium comes the advancement of music and how the world creates it. A world reigned by DJ Faust... Man or Myth?
