Similarly, does djing ruin vinyl?
At scratching competitions, DJs can useonlyscratch-oriented gear (turntables, DJ mixer,digitalvinyl systems or vinyl records only). Inrecorded hiphop songs, scratched "hooks" often use portions ofothersongs.
Beside above, do DJs still use CDs? DJs still use them for promotional toolstopromote their brands as well. 1) Some DJs feelCDsare still a very reliable means of transportingmusic to aperformance. Still most automobiles have CDplayers,so a DJ who hands out a CD to a potential fancanstill expect to have some promotional returnoninvestment.
