DJ Woody - Scratch Wax 10-Inch

Woodwurk

DJ Woody describes his new record ’Scratch Wax’ on the back cover:

“People told me they thought Ear Wax & Repetitive Scratch Injury were wicked, so I thought it’d be dead cool to take all the best bits of those, add some new stuff, remix it all at 133 bpm & create Woodwurk’s first ever ultra-pitch scratch record! To make it extra fun we pressed it on 10”. We think it’s pretty ace, hope you do too! Happy Scratching!!!” 

Each side of ‘Scratch Wax’ contains 8 skip-proof scratch phrases followed by the full sentence and then a lock groove. Side 1 focuses on multi-syllabic vocal phrases, using a uniform structure where the first 270 degrees of rotation provide rapid fire on-beat vocals and last 90 degrees provides a longer sample to jam with. 

Side 2 is ideal for looser freestyle cutting. Woody again devises a uniform structure, this time with the first 180 degrees offering an ‘Ahhh’ or original ’Ahhh’ alternative, the next 90 degrees is a vocal cut, the last 90 degrees provides a classic ’Fresh’ or original ‘Fresh’ equivalent. 

What results is an extremely versatile, fun, easy to use and completely addictive scratch record that is must-have for both novice and advanced training sessions as well as freestyle jams and battles.
