DJ TIPS AND TECHNIQUES 12/6/13 by @JeffC80, Jeff "Djjeffc" Cohen

By  Jeff Djjeffc Cohen

Scratch track compositions aka scratch production, aka sketches:

A song composed completely from scratching samples from records. Everything from the kick, snare, hats, and every other sound you hear. The beat is done by using a scratch technique called drumming using whatever drums are on the record and scratch drumming them to make your own beat. You then scratch in other samples from records to make a composition. I use cool edit to layer the scratches. Here is an example of a scratch composition. Keep in mind everything you hear was scratched and layered through cool edit.
