There are lots of stories about the birth of jazz and the beginning of rock n’ roll, but hip-hop has founding fathers: one of them is DJ Grandmaster Flash. In the early ’70s Joseph Saddler was living in the South Bronx and studying electrical engineering.

His knowledge of audio equipment led him to an idea that would revolutionize the way he played music: the turntable would become his instrument.
