* Lesson 1-6, from DD+S to CC+S : mixmasters *
'Lesson 6' - learn about turntablism !
Turntablemaster Cut Chemist (born Lucas MacFadden, 1972) was part of L.A.-hip hop-crew Jurassic 5 and it was on their Jurassic 5-EP (1997) that 'Lesson 6' showed up first. Slightly different was the remake that he recorded with Shortkut (of Invisibl Skratch Piklz) for his first album (hear/see above).
Why '6'? It all started with Double Dee and Steinski (Doug DiFranco and Steven Stein) who came up with 'Lesson 1: The Payoff Mix' (1983), 'Lesson 2: The James Brown Mix' (1984) and 'Lesson 3 - the History of Hip-Hop Mix' (1985). Full story here; Lessons 1-2-3-6 and more on Ultimate Lessons-comp.
