Cutting Room

Indianapolis isn’t exactly famous for its turntablism community. The Midwest city has some world-class talent, though. On this episode of DJcityTV’s Cutting Room, DJs ALEE, Billy Muff, Topspeed, Nathan Gregory, Nick Laguzza, Matsu, and Niko Flores represent for their city in a three-minute session. The video was filmed at the Deckademics DJ school.

You might remember Matsu and Muff from DJcityTV’s Bedroom Sessions series. Muff kicked off the series in 2013 and Matsu was featured on it in 2017 before becoming DJcity’s Midwest representative.

Watch: Turntablists Put New Phase Technology to Test on DJcityTV’s ‘Cutting Room’ Series

Phase

While in Poland for the Red Bull 3Style VIII World Finals, DJcityTV recruited some of the country’s best turntablists to showcase the new Phase technology on its Cutting Room series.

Premiered at NAMM in January, Phase is a wireless device that bypasses a turntable’s internal audio and eliminates the need for a cartridge. It is considered by many industry experts and DJs to be a potential game-changer in the industry.

The scratch session featured DJs VaZee, Eprom, Krootki, Falcon1, and Keeper ET, and used Fracture’s jungle single, “Loving Touch.” It was the follow up to DJcityTV’s first Polish Cutting Room session, which went down in 2014.
