Scratch: The Ultimate DJ – Video Game w/ Numark Controller

October 9, 2008

I guess that I’m obliged to report this… lately I’ve been trying to avoid news items that bastardize an important art form, but producer QD3 and Numark wouldn’t have it any other other way.  Thanks to Scratch: The Ultimate DJ, armed with a Numark controller and PS3 or XBox 360, legions of living room DJ’s will soon be scratching away with the best of them.

The real question is why though? I can kind of understand why guitar hero is popular it’s not like the average person could pick one up and even play mary had a little lamb at first go. Not to trivialize scratching but like drumming it’s pretty intuitive move hand make scratch noise and their your’re doing a baby scratch. Why pretend to do it?

hip hop movie south coast December 4, 2008 at 2:44 am

You can enter a competition to win a copy of Scratch: the ultimate DJ when it is released over at the website for Hip Hop movie “South Coast”

http://www.southcoastthemovie.co.uk/Win.html

‘SOUTH COAST’ is a character driven documentary about how a culture as intrinsically American as hip hop has taken root and mutated in a quintessentially British way in the least likely of places…. its seaside towns.

The film is packed full of utterly engaging characters (as well as bigger names such as Norman Cook, Plan B, Killa Kela, JFB, Stig, Beardyman, Dr Syntax, Mr J, Blackgrass and Elemental) who subvert preconceptions of hip hop just being about bling, gangstas and sexism in every frame.

The film covers all aspects of the Hip Hop scene; music, graffiti, MC’s engaging in freestyle battles, DJ’s, turntablism (cutting and scratching etc.) and breakdancing.

The film won ‘Best Documentary’ in The International Film Makers Festival, and was officially selected for screening at Raindance, Bermuda, Israel, Helsinki, H20 (New York), Black Soil (Rotterdam), De Reel (Australia) and over a dozen others.

The controller seems a lot more faithful to how DJ‘s actually spin and do their thing.
