Watch Shiftee’s Workshop on the History of Turntablism

In addition to rocking clubs and battling some of the world’s best turntablists, Shiftee is also an instructor at Dubspot, a reputed electronic music school.
Earlier this year, the two-time DMC World Champion gave a workshop on the history of turntablism and those who didn’t attend it can now watch a recap video. The class was part of Dubspot’s free weekly series, the “EDU Sessions.”
The video begins with Shiftee discussing Grand Wizard Theodore, who’s widely credited as the inventor of scratching, and ends with today’s digital scene. It’s an essential watch for anyone interested in learning about turntablism and how it’s evolved throughout the years.
