I know that there’s a world of Youtube videos of people scratching with extreme off the hook skills. But there are just a handful that fuse traditional skills with modern technology quite like John Hype does. We’ve previously shown off his controltablism and cue point techniques, but this time he’s made a video that shows off Ableton’s Link in a turntablist environment.
Using the iconic Amen Brother break as a base layer, John cleverly weaves tracks that have sampled it as well as Lynn Collin’s “Think” with an Ableton Push, Vestax PDX turntable, and Pioneer DJM-S9, all tempo matched courtesy of the Link technology.
