    I would recamend buying the ones that say skipless vinyl when you are 1st starting out until you get the hag of it then move onto regular.

    That's why I recommended Superseal Breaks and Warflex as they're both skipless, and the Warflex series is designed for noobs.

    My personal favorite is the "Y" record on dirtstyle......each revolution of the record has a stab, drum sound, and sound effect at 0, 120, and 240 degrees around the record which allows you to find what you need very quickly based on what position of the label is in. It's still an open groove record (not closed loop like the dj swamp ones) but there's enough breathing room on each track to allow for a few skips. The Y record has a shit load of good sounds and samples.

    Also recommended >>>
    Toasted marshmellow feet breaks (dirtstyle)
    Gag seal breaks (dirtstyle)
    Popcorn breaks (dirtstyle)
    Electronic battle weapon series (rectangle, any of them are good)

    That sounds similar to the Zodyaq system brought out by DJ Relm a while back.

    Yeah the DirtStyles vinyl series are awesome, Qbert is a genius. Also forgot to mention anything on Thud Rumble is a safe choice, heavy Piklz influence.
