"If J-Dilla scratched, this is what it would sound like," said 3x DMC world champion DJ Craze after hearing Ruckazoid's new album series, Killin' DJ's. With releases on Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music label with Hudson Mohawke, music with J Dilla and DJ Shadow, a #1 iTunes single with Breakbot, and most recently featured on Machinedrum's newest album Human Energy, Ruckazoid has recently become known for his vocals.

Some may be unfamiliar of Ruckazoid's seminal work as a turntablist. He designed the world's first musical turntable for Vestax which he coined the Controller One. He was the first to design DJ tool records utilizing ultra pitch technology (these records currently sell for $100 on the vinyl collector market), also inspiring the development of modern crossfader technology, and being the first artist to use a DJ controller prototype which every DJ uses now. After 10 years of private press releases, Ruckazoid is back with Killin‘ DJ's: The Quadrilogy.

Killin' DJ's is the first recording of its kind. Every single sound is performed live, in one take, scratching each sound to create full compositions. The results are nothing short of amazing, which can be observed by its rare ability to be appreciated outside of the DJ scene. DJ‘s have long imagined a future where the turntable would be used and considered as an actual instrument, but the scene has failed to create albums entirely from scratching that signify this reality. This is THE album that pulls it off.

Killin' DJ's is the dawn of a new style that merges a traditional production sound with turntablism, Ruckazoid mentions the importance of form following function..."When music lacks new technique, its advancement is only based on aesthetic. True innovation creates new aesthetic from new technique." Each Killin' DJ's release features socially relevant stories narrated by amazing voice over artists. The Killin' DJ's series is just as much party records as they are educational records. This is guaranteed to fetch high prices on the vinyl collector market, get it while you can.
