"It is my belief that with the correct tools and mindset we can further strengthen the legitimacy of the turntable as a musical instrument." Reload your scratch arsenal with the third volume of DJ Woody's most excellent Scratch Sounds series. The two-time world champ follows the footsteps of classic library music catalogues of the 60's and 70's, presenting a set of original recordings specifically designed for the scratch musician. Just like the first two installments, No. 3 - Atomic Bounce is a conceptual scratch tool designed to progress musicality in turntablism - but this time with a focus on electronic funk, boogie and vocoder sounds. This 12" version offers several skip-proof phrases ranging from vocal samples to chords and licks from various instruments (rhodes, minimoog, bass guitar, talkbox, etc.), with each side ending in a locked drumming phrase. Comes pressed on 'pink panther' colored vinyl, complete with pic sleeve. Also available in 7" format for the #portablists.
