DJ Skills: The Essential Guide to Mixing and Scratching by Stephen Webber

DJ Skills: The Essential Guide to Mixing & Scratching is the most comprehensive, up to date approach to DJing ever produced. With insights from top club, mobile, and scratch DJs, the book includes many teaching strategies developed in the Berklee College of Music prototype DJ lab. The big breakthrough arrived in 1877 when Thomas Edison, while experimenting with a new telegraph device, accidentally ran indented tin foil under a stylus. This led him to develop the fi rst instrument that could both record and reproduce sound. Edison’s machine used wax cylinders and was far from high fi delity. His invention was initially used as an offi ce machine for businessmen, enabling them to record and play back messages and dictation. Shortly after patenting his “phonograph” in 1878, Edison temporarily abandoned this project to concentrate on developing the incandescent light bulb. But by inventing the phonograph, he set off the initial spark, which would inspire further experimentation and eventually lead to the “wheels of steel” and beyond. And this is where Alexander Graham Bell enters the picture. After inventing the telephone (a device that would carry sound waves from one location to another) in 1876, it was a small step for Bell to develop what he called the “graphophone.” With the money he was earning from his telephone invention, Bell es tablished an electro-acoustic research facility in Washington, DC called the “Volta Laboratory Association,” where he and others worked on improving Edison’s phonograph. Their development used wax cylinders and a batterydriven motor, versus Edison’s manually operated original version.
