Mix Master Mike - Serato Performance
I've been thinking about doing a few of these videos myself...I'm almost ready, this is good motivation for it. Mix Master Mike facial expression are pretty hilarious and this guy definitely his own ear for damn sure. Honestly, I always new who he was and I know he has skills, but never really was a fan. I believe today I turned in to one, simple effective shit always gets me going when it comes to the art of Turntablism. He's a veteran for sure, google him! Below is his latest Serato performance, I think its worth a #BHZLife Blog spot for sure!
