We’ve teamed up with DJ Hapa, a.k.a. The DJ Coach, to bring you this episode of “Mixing It Up,” where Hapa teaches us scratching basics. Incorporating scratch techniques into your DJ sets can help you change the vibe in a room and demonstrate control of the music and your instrument.
In this video, Hapa takes us through a few scratch exercises, delivers some pointers for improving technique, and shows us how to bring in the beat using both a DJ controller and a turntable. Watch the full video above and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos like this one!
