DJ Woody Discovers New ‘Spindle Scratch’

UK turntablist DJ Woody discovered a new scratch technique Monday night, which he named “The Spindle Scratch.”
“As you move the record forward with the tip of your index finger you simultaneously brush the underside of each finger over the central spindle on the turntable. Each time a finger hits the spindle it causes a break or pause in the forwards movement of the record. Brushing 4 fingers over the spindle on 1 forward movement results in 4 momentary pauses in the sound, creating a 5 step tear essentially. Doing the same on the backwards movement achieves the same effect.”
Woody will be featured in the UK edition of DJcity TV’s “Cutting Room,” which is due soon.
