Whats the deal with the 45s?
DJ culture is in a state of rapid transformation. As money continues to flood into the electronic dance music market and computer controller technology continues to get better, the meaning of the term has moved far away from anything related to jockeying discs. In fact, many of today’s DJs don’t work with physical media at all. But, as the craft continues to mature, there are thankfully still plenty of people dedicated to keeping the old ways of the disc jockey alive.
And, in the perspective of the old-school, few things are as fabled as the practice of collecting and spinning 7-inch vinyl records. Smaller than a 12-inch record, but larger than a compact disc, 7-inches are an outdated technology. They’re lo-fidelity, brittle, and only contain about three to five minutes of music per side. As you might imagine, they’re difficult to spin with; to do it right, a selector has to think fast and apply an extremely light touch. Similarly difficult is acquiring a collection of playable 7-inches, which involves long hours spent digging in record shops and basements. Yet limited as they are, there’s an appeal that’s mostly absent in other formats. All 7-inch DJ sets get back to the roots of hip-hop DJ culture, when turntablists used to compete with each other over traits like manual dexterity, depth of record collection, and overall dancefloor appeal.
