From Stephen B:

Grandmaster Flash

Grandmaster Flash is the originator of hip-hop mixing as we know it.  Many of the ways DJs cue, backspin, double, mix, and scratch were developed from Flash's innovations. Never one to sit still, Grandmaster Flash has entered the digital DJ domain with Traktor Scratch Pro which allows him to spin digital files on the same turntables and equipment hip-hop DJs have been using for decades.

With his brand new album The Bridge: A Concept Of Culture out now on Strut, Flash is giving upcoming DJs a chance to get some shine of their own.

Go to to download two tracks from the album, and include them on a half hour DJ mix.  Use whatever methods you like. Get creative. Double it up and scratch it. Just make sure that it's hot. There is a FREE, fully functional TRAKTOR PRO demo version available at which you can use for your mix.

Grand Prize:: 1 Traktor Scratch Pro digital DJ system including Traktor Pro software, the award-winning AUDIO 8 DJ audio interface, timecoded vinyls and Multicore Cables.  Winning mix will be played on the new Strut radio show on Diesel-U Music and featured on the Strut podcast.

Runner Up Prize: : Autographed copy of Flash's new CD, The Bridge. Copy of out-of-print Grandmaster Flash mix CD The Official Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on Strut. Copy of Flash's Autobiography My Life, My Beats

Third Prize:: Copy of Flash's new CD, The Bridge
