DJ Excess, a two-time International Turntablist Federation champion and a Dubspot instructor, provides this edition of the Dubspot Podcast series. It’s a mix made up mostly of his own disco edits plus a remix of his. Disco is just one of the many styles Excess is interested in though – he came up through house music, got deep into hip hop as a result of scratching, and also digs experimental music like Philip Glass and Steve Reich (often called the father of sampling).
DJ Precision is 2011 DMC East Coast DJ Battle, 2007 US DMC Champion, Dubspot Instructor, and a member of the legendary X-Ecutioners and Ill Insanity. He is considered to be one of the best beat jugglers in the world of turntablism.
