Ableton recently enlisted Bay Area turntablist DJ Step1 to showcase the company’s Push 2 controller in a live performance.

Step1 put down an impressive routine, combining sampling, scratching, and finger drumming to create a track. In an additional video, she explained how she integrates her DJ setup with Push, then breaks down how she mapped the project in Live.

A veteran in the turntablism scene, Step1 is best known for producing a battle record called Bikini Wax with DJ Shortee in 2007. Bikini Wax is the first battle record to be released by a female DJ. Step1 owns the Sequence One music school in Oakland.
