Do any of you use turntables as part of your setup?
It’s been on my mind a lot lately, as it’s something that I’ve thought about every few years in the sense of “damn, I wish I would have started that sooner”. (I’ve actually arranged to meet someone for a ‘turntable lesson’ this weekend finally!)
I’ve always loved the concept (sample/playback), physicality, sound, and interface of a turntable, and how creatively it’s been (mis)used over the year. It’s almost a cultural pivot point if you take hip-hop into account.
I’m especially inspired by the work of DJ Sniff, Otomo Yoshihide, Kid Koala, etc… More experimental usages of the turntable, but seeing people really rip it up is also really interesting (as a drummer).
So, any turntablists on here?
