about

Steve "Steinski" Stein & Douglas "Double Dee" DiFranco's -- Lesson One: The Payoff Mix -- Lesson Two: The James Brown Mix -- Lesson Three: The History of Hip-Hop
"Made entirely with double-cassette decks and Steinski's extensive vinyl collection, these three tracks paved the way for current cut-and-paste turntablist experimentation. Countless basement DJs were influenced by The Lessons, including DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, who both released unofficial tributes called 'Lesson Four.'"

update: Double Dee clears things up in the comments section:
Just to set the record straight we used a turntable, a mono reel to reel, a 2 track reel to reel and an 8 track reel to reel machine. Using cassette decks would have been like a ballerina dancing with construction boots.
update two: Yeah, I'm namedropping.
