The art of playing the turntable as a musical instrument. Not to be confused with DJing, which is more about providing dance music and/or mixing beats. Turntablism is more about manipulating sounds and creating rhythms or even melodies by scratching and techniques using a mixer.
Not all DJs are turntablists, but all turntablists (with a few rare exceptions) are DJs.
