Vestax PMC-05 Pro Beginnings w/ Qbert and Yogafrog

August 4, 2011

Many DJ’s, including myself, spent a significant portion of their lives standing behind a Vestax PMC-05 Pro mixer. Here DJ Qbert, Yogafrog, and discuss the birth and evolution of the Vestax PMC-05 Pro mixer, which happened to be first mixer to ever have a hamster switch.

Qbert is one of the best to do it. I had no idea he was responsible for the hamster switch. He has also created a lot of scratches that have become part of many DJ’s techniques.

He wasn’t responsible, it was a thing that came about out of all that whole north cal underground hip hop dj scene. Where they would get high, pop caps or tabs and just scratch all day and night tripping and tweaking coming up with new scratches. It was true wizards at work. Those guys were light years ahead of anyone else, i dont know why or understand why all the badass dj’s somehow were of phillipino descent. I would have loved to be a part of that, i remember a little demo shorkut gave at a music store in s.a back in like 96-97 i was completely blown away .remeber children, vestax was part and parcel to making the quantum leap in dj equipment, they were really the onlycompany to try and build quality into their stuff back then while blazing trails. Gemini was always a comprimise.
