SATURDAY MATINÉE: Scratch DVD – Digging In The Crates


Check out this clip from Scratch featuring Jazzy Jay, Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow, amongst others, going through their crate digging exploits.

This is only 9 minutes long, but it should entice you to get the whole documentary. In 2002, a documentary called Scratch was released all about DJing, vinyl and digging, some of the fundamental parts of hip hop culture. In this clip, you get a behind the scenes look at some of the biggest names in hip hop DJing, sifting through vinyl and talking about where and how they go looking for those elusive records. One of the best parts is seeing DJ Shadow navigate his way through an Aladdin’s cave of records in a basement in California. Dusty as hell but PACKED full of vinyl.
