DJs compete in scratching competitions at the and IDA (International DJ Association, formerly known as ITF (International Federation). At scratching competitions, DJs can use only scratch-oriented gear (turntables, DJ mixer, digital vinyl systems or vinyl records only). In recorded hip hop songs, scratched often use portions of other songs. Contents.History Precursors A rudimentary form of turntable manipulation which is related to scratching was developed in the late 1940s radio DJs (music program hosts) or the radio program producers who did their own technical operation as operators. It was known as back-cueing, and was used to find the (i.e., the cue point) on a vinyl record groove. This was done to permit the operator to back the disc up (rotate the record or the turntable platter itself counter-clockwise) in order to permit the turntable to be switched on, and come up to full speed without ruining the first few bars of music with the 'wow' of incorrect, unnaturally slow-speed playing. This permitted the announcer to time her or his remarks and start the turntable a scant moment before she or he actually wanted the music on the record to begin.Back cueing was a basic skill that all radio production staff needed to learn, and the dynamics of it were unique to the brand of professional turntable in use at a given radio station.

The older, larger and heavier turntables needed a 180 degree backward rotation to allow for run up to full speed; some of the newer 1950s models used aluminum platters and cloth-backed rubber mats which required a third of a rotational turn or less to achieve full speed when the song began. All this was done in order to present a music show on air with the least amount of silence ('dead air') between music, the announcer's patter and recorded advertising commercials. The rationale was that any 'dead air' on a radio station was likely to prompt a listener to switch stations, so announcers and program directors instructed DJs and announcers to provide a continuous, seamless stream of sound–from music to an announcer to a pre-recorded commercial, to a 'jingle' (radio station theme song), and then immediately back to more music.Back-cueing was a key function in delivering this seamless stream of music. Radio personnel demanded robust equipment and manufacturers developed special tonearms, styli, cartridges and lightweight turntables to meet these demands.Turntablism. In the early 1970s in the South Bronx, a young teen DJ named 'Grand Wizzard Theodore' (right) invented the 'DJ scratch' technique.

Other DJs, like Grandmaster Flash, took the technique to higher levels.Modern scratching techniques were made possible by the invention of, which led to the emergence of. Early were unsuitable for scratching, since they had a slow start-up time, and they were prone to wear-and-tear and breakage, as the belt would break from backspinning or scratching. The first direct-drive turntable was invented by Shuichi Obata, an engineer at (now ), based in,. It eliminated belts, and instead employed a motor to directly drive a platter on which a vinyl record rests. In 1969, Matsushita released it as the, the first direct-drive turntable on the market, and the first in their influential series of turntables.In the 1970s, and club DJs began to use this specialized turntable equipment to move the record back and forth, creating percussive sounds and effects–'scratching'–to entertain their dance floor audiences. Whereas 1940s-1960s radio DJs had used back-cueing while listening to the sounds through their headphones, without the audience hearing, with scratching, the DJ intentionally lets the audience hear the sounds that are being created by manipulating the record on the turntable, by directing the output from the turntable to a so that the audience can hear the sounds. Scratching was developed by early DJs from such as, who described scratching as, ' nothing but the back-cueing that you hear in your ear before you push it the recorded sound out to the crowd.'

He developed the technique when experimenting with the, a direct-drive turntable released by Matsushita in 1972, when he found that the motor would continue to spin at the correct even if the DJ wiggled the record back and forth on the platter. Knights and merchants 2. Made a similar discovery with the SL-1200 in the 1970s.

The Technics SL-1200 went on to become the most widely used turntable for the next several decades.Jamaican-born DJ, who immigrated to New York City, influenced the early development of scratching. Kool Herc developed, where the breaks of songs—being the most danceable part, often featuring —were isolated and repeated for the purpose of all-night dance parties. He was influenced by Jamaican dub music, and developed his turntable techniques using the Technics SL-1100, released in 1971, due to its strong motor, durability, and fidelity.Although previous artists such as writer and poet had experimented with the idea of manipulating a manually to make sounds, as with his 1950s recording, 'Sound Piece'), vinyl scratching as an element of hip hop pioneered the idea of making the sound an integral and rhythmic part of music instead of an uncontrolled noise. Scratching is related to 'scrubbing' (in terms of audio editing and production) when the reels of an open tape deck (typically 1/4 inch magnetic audio tape) are gently rotated back and forth while the playback head is live and amplified, in order to isolate a specific spot on the tape where an editing 'cut' is to be made. In the 2010s, both scratching and scrubbing can be done on (DAWs) which are equipped for these techniques. DJ Sample of the song 'Where it All Started'Problems playing this file?
