Turntablism is the art of pushing a traditional DJ setup to the limit through a DJ’s extraordinary skills. In the videos below, one of the world’s greatest turntablists demonstrates what is possible when you throw cutting-edge TRAKTOR technology in to the mix.

Here DJ Rafik, 3 times world DMC champion, explores a new dimension of creativity by integrating TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO and the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 and MASCHINE controllers in to the classic two turntables and a mixer setup.
