((Q)) Whats the difference between “Dj” & “Turntablist”? ((A)) The ∂iƒƒerence between the twø was cøine∂ by DJ Babu tø diƒƒerentiate ∂j as “Party Røcker” frøm ∂j as “Soun∂ Alchemist”…meaning…Turntablists are breaking døwn søunds intø New Cømpøsitiøns while Dj’s are Playing/Curating/Mixing the sampled søunds ør Film. So the Turntablists are much like the Physicists øƒ the Art Wørld having spawned Hip-Hop sub genres such as Dubstep/IDM/Trap/EDM/Grime etc. Thus, Hip-Hop producers are infact Turnablist compøsers since turntables and early samplers are both Post Modern “Sampling” instruments. So using this analogy, classical djing is more akin to macro and life sciences like Biology, Ecology, Geology, and Astronomy where Dj scientists work with long songs and samples create a set. In contrast, Turntablists are more like Chemists, and Physicists who focus on taking small sound elements to create something completely new. So while classical Dj’s focus on mixing premade materials, Turntablists use one or more turntables as sound alchemists.
