FRESHHHHHHH…. it’s just one of those days where you need a little scratching. Q-Bert handles the job well and gives us a much needed fix.
In an segment for Yo! MTV Raps Romania, DJ Q-Bert gives an interview highlighting his thoughts on Serato vs. vinyl, the virtues of analog mediums, and new products being developed for turntablism enthusiasts.
