Rob Swift- Soulful Fruit



For you real turntablists, Turntable TV enthusiasts and fellow skratch djs, this album should look familiar. This album was one of the many albums of the era that elevated the art of tuntablism. Originally released in 97 by Stones Throw, Fat Beats takes you back with its reissue.
Soulful Fruit plays features the legendary Rahzel of the Roots in a beatbox vs turntable battle with Rob Swift. Its kinda like a question and answer session between man and machine. The X-Ecutioners track, ‘A Turntable Xperience’ holds true to the essence and innovation of the turntable as a muscial instrument. If you don't have this album and you call yourself a "skratch" dj because you can crab and flare skratch, please take a step back and take some time to learn how the turntablism era even began.
Rob Swift has come a long way and has just released a new album titled "War Games". Pick this album up and you can see how much turntablism has evolved since "Soulful Fruit." Review of "War Games" to follow...

ti-i-i-ime is on your side. yes it is.






















If you are out west, that is. The fresh chaps of Time Machine are embarking upon a 16-date tour of the left which kicks off this Wenesday, October 12 in Los Angeles at the Knitting Factory, and will send them to distant lands, such as Canada, before coming back home on the 27th to presumably kick it in that chair (pictured above) and prepare more musical goodies for eager ears.













Of course, the fun don't cease just there. The People Under the Stairs (shown above in a screenshot from their ever-elusive, highly collectable and never-released Nintendo game) and Giant Panda will also be along to join in the fun, so if you don't go I'm going to come to your house and kick you in the shins.
