Day 272: History of Beat juggling.

Found this video the other day and thought it totally warranted a post of it's own. Basically it's a history of Beatjuggling, and a good look into what is one of the most historic and fundamental techniques of DJing.

Less common these days thanks to the digital age, but back in the day, this was born out of necessity. In a nut shell, if you were DJing at a party, and wanted to extend a section of a record, this was the way to do it. Two copies of the same track, a lot of practise and a good sense of rhythm.

Plus it's presented by the Scratch Perverts, who themselves are second generation turntablism legends.
