Technically impressive, but it sounded like a right bleedin' racket to me.
is it just me or does anyone else think the actual music coming out of the performance isnt that good?
i mean yeah, its impressive and ill probably never reach his skill in scratching and controllerism but isnt the music what actually counts when being a dj/live performer? i mean im all for turntable/controller routines as long as they sound good, but this somehow just doesnt... wouldn't listen to it if it was on my ipod...
however, still mad skills and big respect.
I kid. I don't mean to poke fun at you directly. But seriously, those comments really don't improve forum conversations they just detract from them.

His taste in music isn't the same as yours, and your opinion on taste isn't the same as his. Everyone looses the internet.
However, Shiftee is rad to the max! Its experimental, and magical if you ask me. But I expect no less from him.
Going back to the video. There are two things of note concerning potential updates: A) MK2 Remix Decks and B) Flux Mode with DVS.
The art of scratching is one of a kind. Mad props to the old school feel he throws out.
It's got nothing to do with it being a dubstep battle routine. They can be technical and still sound listenable, for example: -
And I think this is awesome, even thought it's dubstep and someone as ancient as me should be waving my old man stick and shouting "turn that bloody rubbish down and put some Cliff Richard on": -
I've been into battle routines since DJ Cheese won the DMC in 1986. I listened to that on the Robbie Vincent show actually in 1986 and have followed the DMC, NMS, ITF, IDA etc. ever since. I've been running a forum aimed at battle/scratch DJs for getting on for 8 years. And I don't like this cos I'm "old" according to spencer4hire? GTFO of here. It's just an opinion, but at least it's an informed one. No disrespect to Shiftee as a DJ, cos he's great and miles better than I will ever be, but this particular routine - I ain't feeling it one bit.
