During Sway in the Morning’s visit to Denver on 4/20 we caught up with our friends the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, a group of Filipino-American turntablists. When the group formed back in the 1980s, it consisted of DJ QBert, Mix Master Mike, and DJ Apollo. Overtime some members left, while others joined the lineup. Today the crew consists of DJ QBert, Shortkut, and D-Styles. We asked DJ QBert to tell us his take on the current state of DJing. He also offered advice to anyone who’s looking to take up the craft.
DJ Qbert clues us in on some of the new technology his group has developed for DJ’s. They designed a QFO turntable produced for DJ’s who want to scratch at the beach. In addition to that, the Invisibl Skratch Piklz are currently working with Intel on creating a mixer with a computer already built in it.
DJ Dudley D pays homage to Prince with his "Deep Purple" tribute mix.
"This is a mix of "deep" Prince tracks. My idea behind this mix was to make something that would expose the average Prince fan to stuff they probably have not heard and at the same time, it would be something that the hardcore friends would enjoy." - DJ Dudley D
Stream or download the mix below and peep the tracklist after the break.
