Vinyl Record Tradition « - »
"Vinyl is the traditional style of DJing," says Melbourne hip-hop DJ Selekt, who believes vinyl is essential to hip-hop culture and that turntables, a mixer and a crate of records are still the most important tools for a DJ. "It's a foundation that everyone should know how to use . . . you can do more things with vinyl."
Although he occasionally uses CDs for songs unavailable on vinyl in Australia, Selekt maintains that there's more to playing music than ease of distribution.
"If I see someone playing with just CDs, I think that's boring. I could go and program a jukebox somewhere," Selekt says. "It's also much more fun to watch vinyl. Who wants to go and watch some kid press buttons on a computer for two hours?"
