Full respect & credit to the diggin’ video above, from one of the greatest documentaries in history, “SKRATCH“, directed by Doug Pray. I think this snippet encapsulates everything about what crate diggin’ should be about and couldn’t say it better if I tried.

This concept of competition, wanting to be “the best,” does not keep turntablists apart (“It ain’t like real beef”). Rather, they make a point of working together, sharing ideas and encouraging one another. They go on “digging” jaunts (DJ Shadow leads the handheld camera through a basement so stuffed with records that he can barely walk through—he calls it “my little nirvana,” then warns the crew: “Careful, I once found a mummified bat under one of the records”). Several scenes involve artists playing with one another: Mix Master Mike (perhaps most famous for his work with the Beastie Boys, and also a member of Invisibl Skratch Piklz) and the popular Filipino DJ Qbert (also of Invisibl Skratch Piklz); Shadow and Cut Chemist working with Steinski; and Jurassic 5 on stage with Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark (who says of working with these pioneering MCs, “It’s fun, but it’s always a challenge”). – wiki
