    Q-BERT VS. BABU AND OTHER TABLE SHIT

    Discussion started by KONFLIKT - Feb 5, 2002

    AS A LIFETIME S.F. RESIDENT I HAVE TO GIVE MUCH PROPS TO THE SCRATCH PICKLZ BUT THE THING THAT HAS BEEN BOTHERING ME IS THAT Q-BERT GOES A LITTLE OVERBOARD. DON'T GET ME WRONG HES ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED IF NOT THE MOST TALENTED DJ OUT. BUT LISTNING TO WAVE TWISTERS IS LIKE WATCHING THOSE ROBOT SEIZURE VIDIOS THAT EVERYONE POSTS. Q-BERT HAS INVENTED SO MANY NEW TECH. SCRATCHES BUT THEY DONT FLOW. THE CRABS AND SHIT THAT HE DOES ARE TOOOOO TECH TO EVEN ENJOY. ITS LIKE IF YOU GET HIGH AND LISTEN TO IT YOU GET A HEADACH LIKE YOUR LOST. NOW YOU GOT DJ'S LIKE BABU WHO JUST FLOW WITH THE BEATS SOME OF HIS SCRATCHES ARE SIMPLE BUT THEY SOUND GOOD. LIKE A BEAT-SCRATCH MARRAGE. IM NOT TRYING TO CUT ON Q BUT SAVE THAT SHIT FOR BATTLES YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? THIS THREAD IS COMMING OFF LIKE IM A HATER BUT I WISH I HAD THE SKILLS THAT Q HAS. ITS JUST YOU CAT BE TOO TECH. ITS LIKE SOMEONE WHO RAPS WIT SOO MANY BIG WORDS THAT YOU CANT EVEN FEEL THE SONG. YOUR JUST LIKE WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON? THATS THE WAY WAVE TWISTERS IS. LETS JUST BRING IT BACK TO SIMPLICITY AND SHIT THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

    ANOTHER THING...... WHERE DO YOU THINK THE FUTURE OF TURNTABLISM IS GOING? IS IT GOING TO GET PLAYED LIKE GRAFF. WITH A BUNCH OF "TOY" DJS COMMING UP DOING IT JUST CUZ ITS "COOL". OR WILL IT REMAIN ALL GOOD? JUST WONDERING WHAT OTHER DJS OPINIONS ARE.

    i dont think qbert tries to make it flow too too much...and if he does...come on...its hard work to make scratches sound like regular beats and loops while adding other shit over it all.

    i just read the rest (sorry...all caps is a pain in the ass to read)...but i think turntablism is starting to get noticed by the mainstream more and hopefully it wont get too bad. i think turntablism is very experimental...and should be progressing in the future. ive wanted turntables since i was in the 7th grade...and still havent gotten them...but if i ever do...i dont know...prepare for some weird stuff. haha.

    but yeah overall i think turntablism will get more advanced if giving the chance.

    NAW I KNO WHAT YOU MEAN.. I DONT EVEN JOIN THE DMCS CAUSE THEY GET TOO TECH. I FLOW WITH BEATS ITS JUST SOUNDS BETTER. BUT DONT GET ME WRONG I GOT TECH SCRATCHES BUT I HATE THEM CAUSE THE WHOLE POINT IS BEING OHRIGINAL..


    I THINK THAT 80% OF TURNTABLIST FEEL THE SAME AS WE DO SO THE FUTURE WILL EVOLVE AROUND ORIGINALITY NOT SO MUCH OF WHAT THE LAST DJ CREATED.. SO FUK TECH SKILLS AND GET YOUR OWN STYLE AND STOP TRYING TO SOUND LIKE ISP.. IT JUST DONT MAKE SENSE

    ok i agree in part with the first thing about q getting to tech. i also say that, q has skills which i do really like, but id much rather hear some funky shit...hes funky but in a different way.

    but i dont agree on that dj clue not being a real dj.
    dj clue is as much a dj at roc raider or qbert.
    when did djing become strickly 4-track scratch songs and beat juggles...
    sorry but you rock a party with your new "nappyroots" juggle you will catch an AYOO faster then you would if you threw on some Ace of Base.

    djing is djing. not judging your skills but if you just got tables last year that hardly puts you in position to define what and who is a dj...
    iv only djed 3 1/2 years and i still have lots of growing.

    and you dont "join" the dmc, you try out to battle then if your good you advance. its not a circus or anything.
    word.
