Besides Deliberate I also run Studio Scratches.
We record scratching (of the DJ turntable variety) for audio productions and make instructional videos on how to scratch for youtube.
One Saturday a fan of the videos who happened to have studied some of my scratching pretty hard and whom I had helped explain a technique to, contacted me to say that he was sure he had heard my scratching on a BBC documentary and asked if I had released this to them.
I hadn’t and after tracking down the program on iPlayer it turned out that it was indeed my audio.
It was only a few seconds at a time but this person recognised one of my signature scratches and happened to be watching at the right time. Coincidence or channels opening?
To cut a long story short, everything has been sorted out with the BBC and more episodes are in production and they require more of my scratching. I will give you more details once its released for viewing.
There is no way I could have imagined those series of events, I just knew the direction I wanted to go – SCRATCH for other people.
Hope this encourages you to keep on doing whatever you really want to do in life.
On the days when it seems like nothing is happening, EVERYTHING is happening, you just can’t see it yet.
Keep on keeping on.
