9 Soundware releases Scratch
9 Soundware has released Scratch, a collection of turntable loops by DJ Shiftee, winner of the 2007 DMC World Championships.
Along with being the titleholder in the prestigious event, he is also the winner of the 2003 DMC NYC (youngest champion ever, at age 17.) as well as a finalist for the DMC USA in both 2003 and 2004. In addition to being the winner of countless other DJ battles, he is also a member of the legendary Lo-Livez crew alongside members of The X-ecutioners and a highly acclaimed DJ that has opened for artists such as The Roots, Talib Kweli, and Aesop Rock, among many others. Literally being among the top DJs in the world, the musicality and virtuosity of his performances are simply jaw-dropping.
Needless to say, Shiftee could scratch like it’s nobody’s business. From simple, straightforward scratches which vibe up beats to vinyl madness at breakneck speeds, these loops will scratch the !@#$ out of your tracks!
