THROWBACK THURSDAYS (VIDEO): J.ROCC ON 4 TURNTABLES USING THE RANE TTM68 MIXER

It’s another installment of Throwback Thursdays Videos.  This particular video shows the Funky President himself, J.Rocc is throwin down on 4 Turntables…..yes, I said “4” Turntables!  He did this on the Rane TTM68 4 Channel Mixer when Rane Inc debut the mixer at the NAMM Show in 2011.  Here, J is paying homage to the old school classic mix records that came out in the 80’s like “Scratch Party”, “Scratch Dance”, “The New York Scratchmasters”, “Mix Trix”, & so forth.  Usually those mixes were done “4-track style”, mixing using mulit-tracks.  Here, J is demonstrating the mix live with 4 Turntables.  The last time someone did something like this was Cut Chemist with his homage to “The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel” using 3 Turntables in the 90’s.  And before that, Grandmaster Flash himself using 3 Turntables in the 80’s.  Shout out to Mike May at Rane Inc.

Peep the technique below and peep the original mixes that J based his homage to:

Scratch Dance – “Pyramid Mix”

New York Scratchmasters – “Jam #2”
