Boomerang Scratch: Here's how it's done
To begin with, the Boomerang Scratch as the name suggests, is a scratch with the sound coming and going.
What's more, when we cut this combination in half, the movements are identical but reversed.
More precisely, the first part starts forwards, the second backwards.
Note that the scratching hand does not lift off the vinyl.
Motion synchronization :
Part I: The boomerang's journey
- First of all, the boomerang scratch starts crossfader open.
- Then perform a simple forward motion without letting go of the vinyl (or jog).
- Then close the crossfader at the end of the go (1st cut).
- Return to the sample departure point.
- Then close the crossfader at the end of the return (2nd cut).
- Forward again and we're halfway through the combination.
Part two: The boomerang returns
While the first part begins forwards, the second begins backwards.
- At this point, the crossfader is open and in the middle of the sample.
- So now, let's take a simple step back.
- Then close the crossfader at the end of the return (3rd cut).
- Move forward.
- Then close the crossfader (4th cut)
- Go back to the start of the sample (end of the boomerang scratch).
In short, two Two Click Flares are performed to obtain a total of four cuts.
The most important thing is to synchronize dragging and crossfading with the Two Click Flare.
Finally, the Boomerang Scratch in continuous movement is the combination of Two Click Flare, and simple back-and-forth movements with the vinyl (or jog), as with stab scratch.
However, it is important to mastering Two Click Flare before practicing the Boomerang.
Good hand dissociation is a must!
