Turntablism Meets Soul Music: Asian Hawk

Some turntablists have been criticized for lacking “funkiness” or “soul.” Not Asian Hawk. The Bristol native has won four DMC UK Team championships as part of The Disablists and one DMC UK championship as a solo turntablist. He’s also a talented singer and producer.

To put a spotlight on Hawk’s versatility, DJcity enlisted him to perform his aptly-titled track, “Turntable Soul.” The two-a-half-minute routine includes scratching, sample triggering, and soulful singing.
