While the vinyl buying world has developed very deep pockets for 180g limited edition luxuriously packaged reissues of crap they’d previously skimmed right past in charity shops, it’s good to see somebody not luring people into this trap. DJ Woody‘s creative output continues, and pays homage to that bastion of the covers of 70s and 80s music mags — the venerable flexi disk.

Flexicuts” is indeed a flexi disk, about as far from 180g 12″ vinyl as you can get. It largely adopts the common vernacular for 7″ scratch releases:

Introducing ‘FLEXICUTS’ by DJ Woody, the World’s first skip-proof 7” Flexi Disc scratch tool!

Half the price and twice the fun, FLEXICUTS brings you 10 new and original skip proof scratch sentences plus 1 regular scratch sentence.

Arranged at 83.33bpm and pressed at 33.33rpm.
1 sided translucent red Flexi Disc with silver foil graphic, comes in hand stamped ’sweetie-bag’.

*TIP FOR PORTABLE TURNTABLES*:
Regular slipmats can effect the movement of a Flexi Disc on a portable turntable so simply use a plastic slip-sheet for a slipmat.

I love the hand stamped paper bag approach too. The portablist movement has a very home brew approach, and this release typifies it perfectly.

THE COMMENTS SECTION

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.
