Watch DJ Jazzy Jeff’s ‘Peter Piper’ Routine and Interview with Serato

DJ Jazzy Jeff
Run DMC’s 1986 song “Peter Piper” is one of the greatest hip-hop tracks, not to mention greatest odes to DJ culture, of all-time. The opener of their blockbuster album, Raising Hell, also contains a sample of Bob James’ “Take Me to the Mardi Gras,” which has since been used in countless hip-hop tracks.
With all this in mind, it only makes sense that DJ Jazzy Jeff built a routine around the classic. Although he’s been performing it since the early ’90s, Serato has released a new high-definition video of Jeff rocking the routine at their headquarters in Auckland, New Zealand.
Watch below as Jeff delivers razor-sharp cuts using Serato DJ with a Rane Sixty-Two mixer, two Pioneer PLX-1000 turntables, and a DDJ-SP1 controller. An interview with Jeff was also released, in which he discusses the early days of Serato, Red Bull Thre3Style, and more.
