its all about breaking routines, when that stops, you become monotonous.
this is wow.
Yeah the patterns that get used are old hat, and it does sound dated as a result. I also don't get it over modern dnb beats, it sounded a bit more rad with more spaced out amen style breaks. I saw Ratty tear the fucking roof off a gig in about 2000, scratching at only the right times.
Best thing I ever saw was Greg Packer playing an old-skool hardcore set, scratching a record in and then, bang, dropping it into the mix right on the beat, live, no room for fuck-ups. Lovely.

it's a way to use turntables like a musical instrument, instead of just a record player... Plus,,, does anybody ever get bored while mixing??? Scratching acapella's, one-shots, etc, into you mix takes it to the next level, in my opinion....
