15 years ago, when Turntablism was really starting to take off in the Boston area there was an event that pushed pure DJ skills to the forefront. Open Faders was an open turntable event at the House of Blues that was the first of its kind in the area. Put on by DJ Dini, it was a turntablist showcase that featured several accomplished battle DJs showcasing the a fierce set of skills. Borrowing its namesake from the DC area Goonies crew, this event had several former and future national champions perform for an enthusiastic crowd. DJs such as Precision, Excess, Spryte, Perseus, Laz-E-Boy, Fraze, Cutfuscious, Trajic and more all put down legendary performances.
