There are a lot of stories about the birth of jazz and the beginning of rock n’ roll, but hip-hop has founding fathers: one of them is DJ Grandmaster Flash. He was the first DJ to physically lay his hands on the vinyl and manipulate it in a backward, forward or counter clockwise motion. He invented the Quick Mix Theory, which included techniques such as the double-back, back-door, back-spin, and phasing. Basically, what we call a DJ today is a role that Flash invented. The genius behind iconic party tunes like 'The Message', 'Superappin', 'Freedom' and 'You Know What Time It Is', Flash is a living legend in every sense of the title.
