Don’t know your chirp from your crab? Difficulty differentiating your hamster from your hot cue? Maybe you need to watch this entertaining video our pal DJ Angelo made for River Island, where he explains the differences between some of the classic scratch sounds and techniques using vinyl.

After all, in the words of Angelo himself: “Aside from just being able to mix, I think DJs would find it useful to be more technical with their performances and stand out from the crowd, and this is where scratching and beat-juggling come into it.”
