Shiftee Talks Spreading Turntablism to a Larger Audience

Shiftee is considered one of the most skilled turntablists and controllerists in the world. But unlike some of his peers, the two-time DMC World Champion is dedicated to integrating both art forms with the club world.
During an interview with FACT TV at SXSW, Shiftee spoke about his mission to spread turntablism to a larger audience. Specifically, the New Yorker discussed his group with Enferno and mixtape series with grime artist Elijah.
Shiftee said that while turntablism is mostly about technique, his and Enferno’s goal is to make it more about the music, so it connects with more people.
