Vinyl projects on Kickstarter are nothing new. But when a stalwart of the scratch DJ scene decides to use it to finance a project, my ears prick up big time. Thud Rumble aka DJ Qbert and business partner Yogafrog have decided to dip their toes in the Kickstarter pool to bring a very special edition of their ongoing Superseal saga. Fancy a 7″ picture disk? Read on.
Superseal is an absolute classic scratch record. It’s a dependable workhorse that should be in every turntablist’s record bag. And a number of Seal themed releases have appeared over the years in a variety of styles and especially colours. But now the venerable 7″ is getting some Superseal love. It seems that Thud Rumble want everyone to have a Vestax Handy Trax, and for that to become a mobile weapon of choice. Here’s hoping that someone finds an easy way to hack a decent crossfader into one.
You know how these things work — various levels of funding exist, from a single dollar just to say you were involved, right up a crazy cool $5000 for a one to one full day training session with Qbert himself that involves flights, hotels and an extensive session with the man himself.
This particular event is running for another 28 days.
