DJ Radar is probably best known for his awe-inspiring cuts and boundary breaking turntablist records. On collaborations such as Private Parts with DJ Z-Trip (from the era-defining Return Of The DJ compilations) through to his work on the Deep Concentration series, Radar has consistently pushed the limits of turntable music, incorporating sounds, samples and influences that aren't necessarily thought of as staple hip-hop sources. From there he began collaborating with kindred spirits such as Mario Caldato Jr and Money Mark as well as combining turntables with a live orchestra, and creating a written, musical language for scratch notation. In his lecture at the 2004 Red Bull Music Academy, Radar broke down his unusual path to fighting for the recognition of new musical forms.
