    dont u just hate it..i think that the dj scratching is the same as say an mc spitting a few bars u wait till hes finished when u start ur line...i heard a set on dnbarean with mc moose mcin over dj hype scratching its well annoying because u wanna listen to the scratching not a guy with a blocked up nose chatting nonsence....
    your views?......:rasta:

    definitely a don't-do, especially over hype, one of the best (scratchers) ever imo........As you mentioned, when a dj is scratching its HIM talking in way. If an MC jabbers over it, my god...such ignorence/arrogance, i bet hype had a few things to say to him after the set.

    dnb has lost most of the hiphop feel these days, sad....imo hype would still rip most hiphop djs now.

    theres nothing better than a dj that not only knows HOW to scratch but more importantly WHEN to scratch, the absolutle icing on the cake of a sick set!

    i reckon its not only 3 djs scratch i think only 3 djs like to scratch in there sets. of course hype is the best at it but i reckon every pro d&b dj can scratch like hazard or original sin and people but just dont want too.

    DJ Marky is MUCH better than anyone in the dnb scene at scratching by a long long way

    nah nah Craze is by far the best scratcher in the dnb scene. scratching is like mcing,
    done tastefully it can make a set better, but if its done shitty then its sounds like an earful of chatta.

    Hype all the way for the best scratcher.

    If MCs mc over scratching, it's like they're saying no, you can't have your moment to completely make this set even better, it's all about me, fuck off...

    There is no point of a dj scratching if an mc is going to make sure no-one hears it.

    Hype is an entertaining dj but Marky is something else. His pure energy is felt by the ravers and his scratching is very good as well. Hype is a very good dj but his scratching is very one dimensional. Marky and Craze (and all turntablists for that matter) can proper mash it up.
