Turntablism. DJ vinyl turntable system Turntablism is the art of manipulating sounds and creating music using direct-drive turntables and a DJ mixer.

Turntablism

The word turntablist was coined in 1995 by DJ Babu[1] to describe the difference between a DJ who just plays records and one who performs by touching and moving the records, stylus and mixer to manipulate sound. The new term coincided with a resurgence of the art of hiphop-style DJ-ing in the 1990s. Some turntablist DJs use turntable techniques like beat mixing/matching, scratching and beat juggling. Some turntablists seek to have themselves recognized as traditional musicians capable of interacting and improvising with other performers. History[edit] This is the history of turntablism, a term most often used for contemporary DJs. Precursors[edit] Even earlier, Edgard Varèse experimented with turntables in 1930, though he never formally produced any works using them. DJ Roc Raida DMC 1996.

Drum and bass. History[edit] In the late 1980s and early 1990s, a growing nightclub and overnight outdoor event culture gave birth to a new electronic music style called rave music, which, much like hip-hop, combined sampled syncopated beats or breakbeats, other samples from a wide range of different musical genres and, occasionally, samples of music, dialogue and effects from films and television programmes.

Drum and bass

But rave music tended to feature stronger bass sounds and a faster tempo (127 to over 140) beats per minute (BPM) than that of early house music. This subgenre was known as "hardcore" rave but from as early as 1991, some musical tracks made up of these high-tempo break beats, with heavy basslines and samples of older Jamaican music, were referred to as "jungle techno", a genre influenced by Jack Smooth and Basement Records, and later just "jungle", which became recognised as a separate musical genre popular at raves and on pirate radio in Britain.

Dubstep

Music journalists and critics also noticed a dubstep influence in several pop artists' work. Around this time, producers also began to fuse elements of the original dubstep sound with other influences, creating fusion genres including future garage, the slower and more experimental post-dubstep, and the harsher electro house and heavy metal influenced brostep, the latter of which greatly contributed to dubstep's rising mainstream popularity in the United States.[9] Characteristics Musical score of the above recording. The music website Allmusic has described Dubstep's overall sound as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals Rhythm Dubstep rhythms are usually syncopated, and often shuffled or incorporating tuplets.

Aesop Rock performing at Irving Plaza NYC in fall 2007 Underground hip hop is an umbrella term for hip hop music outside the general commercial canon.[1][2] It is typically associated with independent artists, signed to independent labels or no label at all.

Underground hip hop

Underground hip hop is often characterized by socially conscious, positive, or anti-commercial lyrics.[3] However, there is no unifying or universal theme – Allmusic suggests that it "has no sonic signifiers".[2] "The Underground" also refers to the community of musicians, fans and others that support non-commercial, or independent music. Music scenes with strong ties to underground hip hop include alternative hip hop and horrorcore. Many artists who are considered "underground" today, were not always so, and may have previously broken the Billboard charts.[4] Definitive Jux. Definitive Jux is an independent record label based in New York City, United States.
