DJ Shortfuse is a seasoned veteran in the turntablist community for over 8 years.
With tracks on Bomb's Return of the DJ Vol 4 and HipHopSlam's Global
Turntables compilation he is well versed in the knowledge of what turntablists
want and how to make a REAL battle record. Tired of the same old samples and boring
beats Shortfuse designed this record as the ultimate in battle toolz weaponry,
made by a turntablist for turntablists!
The first side is strictly for turntablists and skratchaholics. With a rhythm
beat opening up the first side, this track is designed to teach turntablists how
to cut more rhythmically over a different style pattern of a beat. It forces the
user to really work as one with the music using flow and combinations. There is
also over 3 minutes of skratch sentences with lots of new sounds, word play and
beat patterns along with some of the favorite standard samples as well. There
also is approximately 2 minutes of 2 bar beat percussions - perfect for beat juggling
or beat creation. Every pattern in this section contains different style drums
and sounds so it can be utilized by turntablists or producers. The first side
of this record also contains 4 skipless skratch sentences, 1 skipless drum loop
and a evil saw tooth bass tone.
The flip side of this record has 5 super produced and engineered beats on it guaranteeing
the ultimate in sound quality whether battling, skratching or remixing. All five
of the beats have very distinct styles of their own too: electro, juggle beat,
old skool, funky and evil electronic. All of the beats have been programmed and
produced, so they're not just loops, they have lots of change ups, breakdowns
and switches. No matter how this record is used, it is the highest in quality
and style, giving it's user maximum potential and endless possibilities.
