Studio Scratches – School of Scratch founder & teacher Emma Short-E, featured in TableBeats library with 13 dope beats! Not only did we got dope beats we also got the oppertunity to ask Emma a few questions.
So, we decided to team up with our friend and fellow scratch DJ, Thatkidnamedcee from Houston, Texas. He’s been in the game since -82 and if you haven’t heard of him you should check out his facebook page.
Thatkidnamedcee have 8 great questions for Emma and her answers are very inspiring. She lets us know how to become a great scratch DJ & the importance of practice. Great inspiration and wisdom. Read the interview below!
3. In your opinion, does a skratcher need to know how to dj, or can he or she stand alone as simply a skratcher?
It also helps if you want to start playing gigs where you won’t be scratching the whole set. Most people want to dance and not just hear our crazy scratch nerd sounds.
It can also help with your routines and beat juggling.
I personally learnt to beatmatch first and I really think that helped develop my ear and sense of timing. It’s pretty fun too and can provide a welcome break from scratching if it gets overwhelming during practice.
