BATTLE AVE FRESH PRESS

Break records have been used by DJs for decades. Filled with content that ranges from scratch samples to instrumentals, they’ve played a pivotal role in the development of turntablism culture.

 

To put a spotlight on what’s out there, DJcityTV and MAGMA has teamed with Antriks, the director of Battle Avenue, on a new series called Fresh Press.

FRESH PRESS - EPISODE ONE

On episode one, Antriks reviews DJ TGK‘s Clear Cuts Vol. 1 seven-inch. The record was released on UK turntablism label, Up2Scratch.

FRESH PRESS - EPISODE TWO

On episode two of the DJcityTV Fresh Press series, Battle Avenue director Antriks reviews the vinyl-only release A1BEATSTRUMENTAL V1. DJ A1, Erykah Badu’s official DJ and member of the Lost Tone Pros collective, takes listeners back to the golden age on his instrumental record.

 

The record includes six tracks, which Antriks notes for its “soulful, hip-hop vibe.”
