All right, these are swipes.
This is a scratch that you're gonna cut
the sound in half.
You know how you usually cut the sound in
half with one click.
[SOUND] You know, with that's a flare.
[SOUND] But I guess I thought of,
what if I was on a planet that didn't have
a mixer, how would you do that cut off?
So I thought of just, you know, this is
what you can do with by pausing.
[NOISE] Okay, the tears, or you can cut
off by tapping the record with your
And this is called swipes.
And you can also use two fingers.
use three fingers.
[SOUND] Four fingers.
And if you were from that planet, that
didn't have the mixers,
you can use 10 fingers or how many fingers
your planet has that you're born with.
Those are swipes.
And let's try those out.
[SOUND] Forward and backward.
Got a give out,
a shout out to Yoga Frog who named the
swipes cuz I was doing it one day.
And he was like those are cool swipes.
So that's how the name came out.
All these scratch names come about it just
out of accident you know.
I'm sure a lot of all these other
scratches you hear have different names
and stuff but you know it's like, it's
like forward cuts.
It's all the same thing.
So anyway besides the point,
those are swipes.
Once again, let's
do it in slow motion.
So you let the record play and you cut the
sound in half.
So I, I see some guys do it with their
It's kinda crazy.
So they like, they they let it go.
And then they press their thumb down and
they cut it in half.
Really tricky to do that but yeah.
Maybe, you know, you could practice that
thumb, those are called thumb swipes.
You can probably get those two, kind of a
crazy scratch, kind of exotic, too.
