Top 5 records: Qbert
1. Louis Armstrong Hot Fives & Hot Sevens
Whenever I’m in need of inspiration for skratching, this is where I go to get some funky patterns.
2. Kool G Rap Kool Is Back
When I hear this master rap, I always find myself jumping on the tables and seeing if I can get my skratches to rhyme all over the place the same way that G Rap does.
3. Ravi Shankar & Zakir Hussain Concert for Peace
I listen to this when I want to take my spirit on a journey to a higher dimension – or learn some abstract rhythms for skratch drumming.
4. Mozart Piano Sonatas
It is said that he was part of a secret society that knew about sacred geometry and that Amadeus applied that to his music. This is why they can now scientifically prove that listening to Wolfgang makes your IQ higher!
5. Jimi Hendrix Hear My Train A Comin’
Outer space blues of the 60s. It shows that with tons of practice, your ideas can flow through you and pour out like floating colours of liquid sound.
Qbert spins a DJ set at Hyde on Saturday April 28. Tickets: www.rnrasia.com .
