Once upon a time Dj’s spun pure unadulterated vinyl on turntables. These beat maestro’s of course still exist today, but are far and few in between. For the most part, those crate digging era’s are long gone and replaced by the ever growing and overwhelming options of new push button technology. Those crackle and pops are what made the sound so memorable.
