BEAT-BOXING

THE DJ (TURNTABLISM)

GV9 SOULFUL WAYS: The DJ "I don't know about you, but where I sit the machinations of what a DJ actually does behind the "wheels" are downright fascinating. Consider      the superior manual dexterity that is required to manipulate faders, switchers, equalizers, turntables (usually 2) all seemingly near simultaneous in their execution, in order        to create a beat! Imagine? Watching those fingers move, tweak, manipulate, skratch, push, slide and reverse        actions is a sight-to-behold.  The counter-intelligence at     play here is awe-inspiring and unique!" continue...
