original song from ‘Fleisch’

Optimus Prime performing at 'Scratchersize'

Tim Basically recorded the scratches for this a few days before heading off to Canada. I had just showed him the basic beat & had him do stuff for about 10mins.

As much as I love tight & technical hip-hop DJs, I’m from a noise & experimental background when it comes to turntablism, so that’s why I will use some of the ‘not-so-tight’ takes in tracks.

Tim & I may do some more tracks while he’s still in Canada. I’m in the process of compiling samples and beats that I’d like to turn into an Optimus Prime album.
