Went out by the Lake today and decided to take with me my little OMNI potable turntable and try to freestyle scratch in the nature while I am at it, it was a bit challenging to find a stable spot to put the portable on it to avoid skipping, after some scouting we managed to find an acceptable spot, the needle did skip few times but when I got comfy I just locked into my Zone and went in a Freestyle mode.
Hope you enjoy the little clip from my outdoors DJ scratch session I did earlier today.
The Portablism movement's exponential growth is the reason why some are already calling it the 'rebirth of Turntablism' as more and more users and developers are joining the community every day.
A key factor to the scene's growth is the low barrier of entry – there's not a lot of gear or cost necessary to get up and running.
In the early days of hip-hop especially, you had to be able to manipulate vinyl like a god before you could even call yourself a DJ.
