Grandmaster Flash is the originator of hip-hop mixing as we know it. Many of the ways DJs cue, backspin, double, mix, and scratch were developed from Flash's innovations. Never one to sit still, Grandmaster Flash has entered the digital DJ domain with Traktor Scratch Pro which allows him to spin digital files on the same turntables and equipment hip-hop DJs have been using for decades.
With his brand new album The Bridge: A Concept Of Culture out now on Strut, Flash is giving upcoming DJs a chance to get some shine of their own.
