WATCH | The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra Is Turntablism At It’s Finest

To celebrate the 67th anniversary of Japan’s LP Record Day on March 20th, hi-fi audio brand Technics wanted to do something one-of-a-kind; something that has never been done before. So, they created The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra, the first orchestra made of only turntables, and remixed one of the most important records in history.

According to an article from DigitalTrends.com, The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra is comprised of 30 world-class DJs, many of whom are Disco Mix Club (DMC) World and U.S. DJ champs from the past two-plus decades. Using mixers and the Technics SL-1200 Series turntable, the group remixed the first 12″ LP ever issued in 1948 – violinist Nathan Milstein and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra’s rendition of Mendelssohn Concerto in E minor.
