Originaly, Selector (Selecta) is the one who selects and passes the records (vinyls) to the guy that is playing them on the soundsystem. It originated in reggae/danchall music, but nowdays the word is used to describe a DJ (wich is wrong - but accepted)
Used in many songs.. Rewind Selecta, Pull Up Selecta, Bo Selecta,...
