Sat 12th April 2014 - Rap legend Grandmaster Flash goes in the mix selecting a Panjabi MC break for Charlie Sloth on BBC 1xtra . Grandmaster Flash, one of the pioneers of hip-hop DJing, cutting, and mixing inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame becoming the first hip hop/rap artist to be so honored. He invented the Quick Mix Theory, which included techniques such as the double-back, back-door, back-spin, and phasing. This allowed a DJ to make music by touching the record and gauging its revolutions to make his own beat and his own music. Flash’s template grew to include cuttin’, which, in turn, spawned scratching, transforming, the Clock Theory and the like. He laid the groundwork for everything a DJ can do with a record today, other than just letting it play. What we call a DJ today is a role that Flash invented.
