Oral History Information
DJ GrandMixer DXT brought the turntable front and center as a musical instrument! DXT is a proud member of the "first generation" of DJs in the dawn of Hip-Hop. When he recorded a session that was played for Herbie Hancock, the result was the breakthrough hit instrumental "Rockit." The success of the song resulted in Herbie hiring DXT to join his band and tour, with his turntables on stage! A new era of musical instrumentation was born.
