9 Soundware has released DJ Shiftee: Extreme Turntablism a multi-format set of turntable and mixer feedback loops by DJ Shiftee, the 2007 DMC World Champion.
You can get a taste of DJ Shiftee’s work from the video above.
The loops on DJ Shiftee: Extreme Turntablism are taken from performances recorded shortly after his 2007 victory. Extreme Turntablism documents DJ Shiftee as, literally, the king of DJ battling.
Along with turntable loops, included are 44 loops of mixer performances that explore DJ Shiftee’s innovative techniques in which he uses nothing but a mixer to create an astonishing variety of textures. By manipulating a feedback loop with the mixer’s onboard controls, he performs phrases ranging from simple feedback rhythms to blistering walls of noises and bassline-like phrases.
The set consists of 212 loops (2 to 4 bars in length) at tempos 70, 80, 90, and 100 BPM.
The 895 MB download includes 212 WAV files (24-bit/44.1 kHz), 166 REX2 files (24-bit/44.1 kHz), and 166 Apple Loops files (24-bit/44.1 kHz).
