Fong Fong Launches Kickstarter Campaign for Innovative Scratch Device


Fong Fong, the 2012 DMC Online World Champion, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his innovative DJ controller, the SliderKut.

The SliderKut is a linear device that connects to a mixer and is used in place of turntables and media players. It requires DVS software such as Serato and Traktor.

The device isn’t intended to replace turntables all together, though. Instead, the SliderKut is designed for DJs who want a light and compact alternative.

According to the Kickstarter page, it was inspired by a dream that Fong Fong had back in 2009.

“I woke up and directly wanted to created [sic] this crazy project, first as a guitar scratch and secondly as a real scratch portable player with the same feeling as a real turntable,” Fong Fong says. “[There would be] no need to practice on it! You [would] directly feel comfortable as if you are on your deck!”
