One who uses the turntables in the spirit of an instrument; whereas ordinary DJ's simply stand there and play two records, a turntablist scratches and manipulates his vinyl, and supplements it with breakbeats and samples.
DJ Premier, Alchemist, and Eric Barrier are all examples of true turntablists.

Get the turntablist mug.
Mastermind behind the Furious Five. Pioneer of the 'Quick Mix' and 'Clock' theories, and author of the first Hip Hop single to utilize both samples and scratching, called 'Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel'. A god among the likes of Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa.
All turntablists today have in some way been influenced by the incredible Grandmaster Flash.
