Grand Wizard Theodore – the man who redefined hip-hop music

November 30th, 1999

One night, young Grand Wizard Theodore (in every day life know as Theodore Livingston) was practicing mixing in his bedroom. But he was playing the music a bit too loud.

As his mom was screaming at him, he was holding the record with the needle still on it, moving it back and forth. This created a sound that sparked his interest – the scratch. After practicing and experimenting with it for a while, he introduced the new technique that would change Hip-Hop forever at a garage-party.
