First thing to say is that this site is very much under construction.While
it is going live September 2003, there's waaaay more work to do than
I could have imagined - mainly down to giving the products much more
info that I had originally planned. Makes the site much better but
obviously adds to the workload. Still - seems a shame to keep it
under wraps for much longer and the core of the site works fine.
Once launched, I'll keep updating the site update section so you
can see the progress.
what is skratchworx all about?
Essentially, the aim is to provide a one-stop shop
for the very latest news and reviews regarding anything skratch dj
After an extended absence from the skratch dj scene
(14 years to be exact), I set about researching the available options.
Surely things have moved on from Technics 1200's ruling the scene...
or so I thought.
Thanks to the information superhighway, I soon found
myself neck-deep in snippets of reviews in far flung corners of the
web. So I got to thinking - wouldn't it be cool if there was one
place people could visit to get the latest information on the gear
they want? Hopefully, skratchworx.com is going to be that place.
who is it aimed at?
I think it's aimed at 2 distinct groups. The first
of these is where I place myself - beginners. Despite the number
of years in the game, I've come back to it fresh and relatively knowledge-free
and place myself in this category. Part of the reason for doing this
site is so I can gain the knowledge to keep up with the real players.
The next group would be everyone else who has an
interest in the skratch dj scene. There will be a strong bias towards
new and progressive technologies as I'm a firm believer in moving
things forward. You don't have to be down with the tablist scene
to get what you need from skratchworx - anyone with a desire to skratch
will benefit from a regular visit.
what can you expect to see in the coming
You'll notice that the navigation bar gives quick
links to all types of dj equipment. Also to be included (and this
will be a growing list) will be a dealer, manufacturer and record
store directory. You'll appreciate that gathering this volume of
info together is very much a long term project so expect it to grow.
Enjoy your visit to skratchworx.com and keep coming
back for the latest info.
