DJ Scratch & Tony Touch’s Scratch Improvisation [VIDEO]

When watching DJs cutting and scratching, it reminds me of how jazz musicians use improvisation to create new sounds. DJ Scratch, who I've had the pleasure of meeting and seeing live with EPMD, lives up to his namesake when it comes to handling breakbeats.

When watching DJs cutting and scratching, it reminds me of how jazz musicians use improvisation to create new sounds. DJ Scratch, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and seeing live with EPMD, lives up to his namesake when it comes to handling breakbeats. He’s joined here by mixtape legend Tony Touch for this turn-based, impromptu scratch session. Each man has over 20 years of experience with their craft and it shows. Shout out to www.NYClout.com for shooting this footage live at Sutra in New York City.
