Starting the week is a short film. In conjunction with Raiden Fader, the good people over at portabist.com have made a video that goes some way to explaining why portablism has become popular.

HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED

It’s an interesting contrast to hear the comment about recommending a portable scratch setup as a good place to learn scratching. There was a time when the stock advice was to save up and buy the very best gear around — usually Technics and a Rane. So it makes me happy to see that turntablists now find it acceptable to lower the bar for entry, and let people learn the basics of scratching without selling body parts just to find out that turntablism isn’t for them after all.

And let’s not forget, portablism is just fun too.

Big thanks to Paul Skratch and portabist.com for the shout out at the end of the video too. 🙂


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.
