Jones, who passed away in January, is credited with being among the first to spin two different copies of the the same album on a turntable. [obviously they mean mixing it between two turntables, but this journalist is obviously a herb.]
In an interview with TheFoundation.com, Jones explained that when he started the practice in 1969 and 1970, he simply wanted to get to the “best part of the record” which “got people dancing … so I would play that part continuous.”
shiiiiit, I never even heard of this guy, but his idea is my favorite part of djing. everyone just uses samplers now, though : (
