VIDEOS

These are some of the beats I played in Perth’s Beat Down 6. I made some silly videos to accompany them.

 

Recently a new DJ toy came out called ‘Beamz’. It’s basically a laser activated midi controller: If you put your hand in front of the laser it triggers a sound. A self proclaimed ‘Grandmaster’ of turntablism Grandmaster Jay filmed himself doing a routine where he flailed his arms around like a madman supposedly performing an amazing routine. It was quickly pointed out that Jay was miming over a Jazzy Jeff routine. He was made look silly and was dropped by Beamz. I was their next endorsee showing how I became a Grandmaster… Pure skill.

 

Here’s a little routine I entered into the 2013 Oz online DMC competition. They only required a minute and a half routine, and I already use this routine sometimes in other peoples sets to fill time so I thought i’d film it and enter.

 

Producer Tag was invented by Dave V from Brisbane, Australia. It follows the trend of Rapper Tag videos that went viral during 2010 – 2011 except instead of rappers uploading their written verses to youtube, the idea is that producers use the same sample(s) to make a beat, but produce it in a different way to their predecessors. I used the sample and added another before “tagging in” or passing it off to Creed Birch who could no longer perform it due to equipment malfunctions. I then passed it on to Renz from Brisbane.

Producer tag 6 following M’dusu, Mat Rafle, Oath, Dazastah, and Dave V (The Creator)…

Time to switch the sample!
