Baby Scratch – Scratching in A Dancing Way – Chinese with English Subtitles – DJ 刷碟教學 EP01
Hi, it’s DJ FOOL Welcome to Scratching in A Dancing Way So Ummmm, First of all, This is the first video of the tutorials I found that If you have a flow while scratching, like the flow of dancing, you’ll be able to keep a better stability of scratching For instance of pushing forward and pulling back, If you slowly push forward by pressing your body down and then hasten the speed of pushing, it will be much better than a regular push Same rule Pulling back carefully and then hastening the speed Instead of a regular push and pull, the smoother movement that I said would prevent the record from skipping. Next, I have to let you know something about this tutorial. I usually do scratching by using a portable turntable. There’s some difference between scratching on a portable and on a regular turntable. I’ll give you some tips in the following tutorials. The inventor of Baby Scratch is Grand Wizzard Theodore. You can watch a documentary called Scratch. In the video, he was talking about the story how he invented the technique. Okay, I need to explain the record that a scratcher usually uses. This is a scratch record. It sounds like this. It repeats the same sound again and again. We call it ;Skipless record.: Because there is some possibility of skipping when you are scratching very hard on a normal record, we use the kind of record to prevent it from skipping. How? Look! When the record goes here, it shout “Ahhhhhhhh” out. If it spin 360 degree, it’ll cry out “Ahhhhhhh” again at the same position. In other words, it doesn’t matter if the record skips because the sound will keep going with no interruption no matter when it skips. Now, before learning how to do Baby Scratch, the first thing we have to do is to find the head of the sound. What’s the meaning of the head of the sound. Now, I’m looking for Ahhhhhhh. This! In order to find the head of Ahhhhhh, you should pull the sound back and forth. and then try to find the position that the sound begins to come out. You can put a sticker on the record to help you recognize where it is. I rather put the sticker at 12 o’clock to indicate the head of the sound or on the line from the center of the record to the needle. Okay, So far, you understand those essential things. Thus, we can start to do Baby Scratch. This is the head of Ahhhhhh. The movement is simple. Just push forward. and then pull back. Push forward and pull back. Scratching in A Dancing Way. Which means I’ll add body groove while scratching. I push the record forward. Meanwhile, I press my torso down. And then, when I pull back the record, my body return up to the previous position. Again, Push My body is down. Pull Return back. Instead of scratching with no body groove, Scratching in this way would help you decrease the possibility of skipping. In terms of using regular records in a party, if you are trying to do scratching before switching songs from one to another without a dedicate movement, the record sometimes skips so that you couldn’t drop on the right beat. It’ll be a terrible flop. When you have spare time, just do a comparison between those two ways of scratching. (A normal way and a way with grooving) I believe that you will find this way is better. Also, this movement would help you to scratch to the beat. All right, let us practice Baby Scratch. This is a slow version. Push Pull Push Pull Body down Body up down up down up (Repeat) Okay, that was slow. Now, speed up Then, faster We can double the action of scratching while a routine of up and down. Okay, this time we’ll be scratching with music. Okay, that was Baby Scratch. Hope it interests you after the practice. Additionally, follow this channel. I’ll be uploading tutorials frequently. Plus, I’ll giving you some tricks I found to make you learn it faster. All right, have a good one!
