If you think DJs started doing special things with records when house blew up in ’87/’88, or maybe when Grandmaster Flash and his contemporaries started cutting up old funk records at block parties as rap took hold ten years previously, get ready for a surprise and a treat.
Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton are no strangers to documenting and exploring the world of the DJ in print. Two Englishmen who actually met on a street corner in New York in the mid-90s, their debut book – Last Night a DJ Saved My Life – was an instant hit, attempting to document the history of DJing in one go. Their next book, How to DJ (Properly), I can recommend highly to anyone with the slightest wish of making a good job of playing records for a living.
