Art of Turntables is a Live-Performance Mega Party featuring exhibitions by super star, pioneering DJ's displaying legendary turntable skills combined with video performance art that take audiences through an epic journey of classic hip hop, soul, house, afro-beat, reggae and classic dance music of the 80's and 90s.

This music experience will captivate audiences with authentic video and digital imagery of iconic music, dance, television, film and fashion on simultaneous screens of each DJ's set with larger than life video images that transform each venue into a live-action musical timeline.

DJ Cash Money is a historical figure in the art and culture of Hip-Hop. Representing Philadelphia, he is a pioneering artist in the art of turntablism and the first inductee in the DJ Hall of Fame. As an innovator in the DJ world, he won the New Music Seminar Supermen DJ Battle in 1987 and the DMC World DJ Championships in 1988. DJ Cash Money is the reason why DJ's turn their turntables sideways in what is called the 'Battle Position' and specialized and perfected "Transform"scratch, one of the most crucial scratches of the turntable art form.
