Performances: DJ Qbert

Saturday, October 14, 2017, 9:45 PM

Pioneering turntablist and composer DJ Qbert (a.k.a. Richard Quitevis) keeps the evening’s pulse elevated by showing off his technical virtuosity and mixing innovation. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Qbert emerged out of the Filipino mobile DJ scene of the 1980s and ’90s and is a founding member of Invisibl Skratch Piklz, a legendary turntable crew that invented the concept of a DJ band. A DMC World DJ champion and Hall of Fame inductee, Qbert helped revolutionize turntablism, taking it to new technical and creative heights. In addition to his recording projects and live performances around the world, he promotes skratch DJ culture through the development of his record catalog as well as additional tools and an online interactive school and community for DJs (Qbert Skratch University).
