The first in a series of online Turntable Tutorials aimed at DJs who are interested in Turntablism and want to develop new technical and performance skills on the decks.

In this first tutorial, I advise beginners on how to get started in a step-by-step introduction to Turntablism. Tutorials to follow will cover topics including scratch techniques, beat juggling, and DJ equipment.

I hope you find this video informative and entertaining, and I welcome any feedback.

I dont know if DJ angelo reads and responds to this comments, or anyone
else can help me, but i need some help. I recently started with
turntablism, and im having a hard time finding the right vinyls to use,
what are the best tracks to start with? And can anyone tell me where to get
them.

I’ve been DJ since 2001, the boom of the CD players/Controllers. But really

help me. You a beast on them 2’s. Thanks DJ Angelo

LookatthatSH1T says:

So setting the angle of the cartridge will wear your records down faster.
But does the same go for setting the counter weight and height to 0?

DjMiNuS420 says:

Ha ha, I use wax paper to cut out for under my slipmats like 8 years ago.

freedompeaceandtruth says:

great videos, cheers bro, peace

Theorigionaldjsdot says:

know it all) i did not know what the antiskate was for, (duh) plus ive
never thought of setting my carts at an angle either, (again,,,,cos i know
it all) oh well, i learn something new everyday. nice one angelo. cool mate.

JamKV2 says:

Hi Angelo, I love your tutorials, I have learned a lot! what can we do if
the vinyl is a bit concaved? if the concave side is up, the vinyl is too
slippery, the corner of the vinyl is a bit high and when you touch to
scratch the neddle jumps easily… is there a solution for that vinyls? can
I deformate them to put them plane? thanks a lot!

Naki263 says:

numark ns7 .. hopefully get turntables soon but your videos help heaps

Patrick Paredes says:

Hey Angelo I recently bought a new turntable set-up and it was second

keep that slick ?

tubamilk1 says:

thegreatgonzalaz says:

sean liu says:

I thought he was gonna use the paper for the place mat, so when the paper
ripped, i was like OH SHIT, but then he used the plastic part : )

started… it direct drive, ipod compatible, its got slipmats and
headphones, etc. its the Numark iBattlepack its $300 but its got everything
(including the cartriges)

DJPoke2 says:

Is this only for vinyl turntables?

djsandrocosta says:

23 degrees on the record will spend more?. You use the extra weight in the
capsule?

derrieckgates745 says:

what does the laptop due for the turn tables

Bartbfbb says:

this guy looks like the fusion of dj qbert (asian) and grandmaster flash
(hat). no offence, just a joke 🙂

Gamtal says:

@DJAngeloUK Nice scratching man ! I have a little question and I hope
you’ll understand my bad English. What do you think about Beat Juggling
hamster (Reverse Cross-Fader). Is it possible ? Some people say it’s
faster. Because I’d like to learn scratching hamster but I want to beat
juggle too. Again, sorry for my English.

BrownRiceLightning says:
