Jamaican-born DJ KoolHerc moves to New York in the late 60’s and brings Jamaican tradition of «kindling» with him. It included a story consisting of rhymes which were created while singing without any preparation. He used turntables for mixing two tracks to create a new sound.

Grand Wizard Theodore was the first DJ who used scratching. He invented it by chance. Practising in DJ’s art he turned on music too loudly. When his mother began shouting he slowed down the record by moving a vinyl record back and forth with the hand while it is playing on a turntable that created incredible effect. He was awarded International Turntable Foundation Prize for creating scratching.
