Last month we had the honor of having Turntablist legend Roli Rho, of legendary 5th Platoon & Open Faders founder come by and showcase some of his classic routines, He also unveiled the Tableturns banner for the first time ever, officially releasing the date Jan 26th.
Tableturns was an open turntable event of the Mid-90s that saw legendary DJs such as Roc Raida, Craze, & A-trak, to name a few. Performances like these kept up and coming DJs hungry to hone their craft and show and prove:
January 26 at Scratch Academy alot of the OGs of the original event were in attendance and performing. Spictakular, Dirty Digits, JS-1, Precision and the original MC Kinetic NRG of Steelohim to name just a few. The energy was great from old school all vinyl routines, to new school tone play routines, everyone came out to show their love for the craft its an exciting time for turntablists with new events and outlets to showcase the skills we don't always have the opportunity to in a normal DJ gig; as well as a great way to inspire the next generation of tablists to carry on using the turntable as an instrument. No word yet on the date of the next TableTurns date, but the Open Faders team will host their next #WIkiWeds live stream February 15 be sure to check them out! Link at the bottom!
