I have absolutely no idea why I’m awake at 03:58 on a Monday morning. But while I wait for my body clock to kick in and demand that I go back to bed, I perused the internet (well done Vekked for winning DMC), and stumbled across an image that really got my heart beating that little bit faster, something that really isn’t a good thing when I’m trying to get back to the land of nod.

You see, I saw this picture of something I’ve been hoping to see for the best part of a decade. The 7″ Portable Scratcher is a concept device that taps into the current trend for gluing a Raiden or Frisk Fader in a box onto a portable turntable like the discontinued Vestax Handy Trax or Numark PT-01. Such amalgamations clearly work, but look to be an inelegant solution compared to a unit designed with the express purpose of scratching 45s.

You can hide, but I have a sneaky suspicion who is behind the poster…

At this ungodly time, I know nothing more that what you see on Facebook and Twitter. I’ve put a request in for more info, but given that the mysterious inventor was at the DMC finals, I would imagine that unlike me, they’re safely tucked up in bed. More when I have it.


Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
