Monthly Archive

Below is a complete archive of all the news stories we've ever posted, broken down by month. Apologies for any missing pictures - the recent host change has seen a few images go walkabout. As I come across them, I'll find them and reinsert them. But I'm sure you'd rather I worked on the all new site than recover 7 year old images.

www.djbattle.net Technics DZ review
Posted by Gizmo on October 29, 2004
The guys over at www.djbattle.net have managed to lay their hands on a Technics DZ-1200 (something I'm still trying to do) and give it the once over - the outcome being a poor 6/10.

Just for a laugh...
Posted by Gizmo on October 28, 2004
Finding my mind wondering (it comes with age), I wondered about using something other than a regular turntable with the CDX-05/TTM1 combo. So I requested a Vestax Handytrax and what you see is the results of my old addled brain.

RIP John Peel 1939-2004
Posted by Gizmo on October 26, 2004
Radio 1 DJ John Peel passed away last night aged 65. For those of you non-UK visitors, John Peel has had an immeasurable influence on the UK music scene and is responsible for many of the UK's finest artists careers and was certainly a massive influence on my musical education in the late 70's and early 80's.

Following the competition on Turntable Radio to win one of four copies of the brand new Lamont break record, DJs from Earth, sw_smilie.png now has another 3 copies up for grabs to celebrate its release and also tie in nicely with Lamont's work with Rodec on manufacturing the new scratchbox mixer.

R.I.P. E-Scratch
Posted by Gizmo on October 22, 2004
For those of you who have followed sw_smilie.png for some time, you'll be aware of the development of a digital scratch product call E-Scratch. It's a product that was a long time in development but sadly it will never see the light of day.

Vestax CDX-05/TTM1 movies
Posted by Gizmo on October 14, 2004
In yet another attempt at self humiliation, I've prepared for your entertainment a small selection of Vestax CDX-05 and Tascam TTM1 movies.

And in a bizarre twist, I've got a Numark CDX running with the TTM1 as well. Well kind of...

Tinkering...
Posted by Gizmo on October 13, 2004
Sorry people - just playing with a few things right now. Full news and comments appear in a popup. Let me know what you think. The plan is to have a smaller number of headline stories with a longer list of headline only links and a popup to see a full story. Holler with your thoughts.

Wot no DZ?
Posted by Gizmo on October 11, 2004
First seen at PLASA 2003, and then at MusikMesse 2004 and now PLASA 2004, the Technics SL-DZ 1200 has certainly received it's fair share of attention - some good, some bad, some downright hating. Just to prove that you can actually scratch on these things, a short demo from PLASA is provided for your viewing pleasure.

Woody at PLASA
Posted by Gizmo on October 10, 2004
Just tidying up after PLASA and discovered a few snippets I hadn't posted yet - one of which is DJ Woody's Flutine set on the Vestax stand. I know it's been seen before on his site but in my book, you can never see this enough. It goes to show that you don't have to bust a 7 click euro crab flare orbit whatever to be a world class scratch DJ.

Site Update - Reviews
Posted by Gizmo on October 1, 2004



Over the coming weeks, I'll be tinkering with a few things on the site, with a view to moving over to a new style as soon as possible. One thing has been bothering me for a while however - we pride ourselves on providing the best reviews around for turntablists. But once the news story about drops off the bottom of the page, the review might as well not exist. So I've added a handy drop down menu to link to all existing skratchworx reviews. More to come...
