Into turntablism? Watch this short film on the turntable as a musical instrument.

Beginning in the 70s with disco and then evolving rapidly with rap, the repurposing of the turntable into a musical instrument has resulted in some interesting new frontiers in sound.

This short film (via The Vinyl Factory) shows how Shiva Feshareki, Haroon Mirza, Maria Chavez, Marina Rosenfeld, Philip Jeck, Janek Schaefer, Graham Dunning and Vinyl, Terror & Horror continue to push these boundaries.
