The back to back DJ champion released his second video on Friday (Aug. 25), showing aspiring turntablists the fundamentals of scratching on a controller. “It doesn’t matter what equipment you have, you just have to be really good with it,” Atendido says at the beginning of the video with his Pioneer DDJ-RB, an entry-level compact controller.
“When I started out scratching I didn’t really build my basics up with this scratch. I went straight for the more difficult ones, and I regret it,” Atendido reveals. “Scratching on a controller is a little different than scratching on a CDJ or turntable, but it doesn’t matter what you use, as long as you can use it.”
