[ i s m ] documentary snippet - "Branding"
"Branding - Maybe there's too many platforms and not enough artists." The [ i s m ] Documentary is now LIVE via Battle Avenue's Youtube Channel! WATCH THE FULL DOC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVpvNltrvc4 This documentary is primarily based on the Killable Syllables tour with Mixfader and covers DJ Excess's return to turntablism and his encounters with the new generation.

2018 CUT2CUT USA - FINAL 4 - J.Marz
I made it to the Battle Ave Cut2Cut Final Four and started to reflect back to when I was 5 years old and remember the moment when I heard scratching for the first time by Grand Mixer D.ST. on Herbie Hancock's "ROCK IT" live on TV. It just felt right to pay homage to such an iconic song that started it all for me! Now as I am older keys and melody are a focus so shoutout to my Chicago native Herbie Hancock! Fast Forward to now with the Controller One - DJ Woody has been a definite inspiration - This guy lives and breathes HIPHOP like I do - This one's for you too! Polyphonic Scratching still puzzles me a bit...lol.
