Dmc Vinylist Keep Vinyl Alive Turntable Slipmats – Red With White Print A slipmat is a circular piece of slippery cloth orsynthetic materials that DJs place on the turntable platter instead of thetraditional rubber mat. Unlike the rubber mat which is made to keep hold ofthe record firmly in sync with the rotating platter, slipmats are designed toslip on the platter, allowing the DJ to manipulate a record on a turntablewhile the platter continues to rotate underneath. This is useful for holding arecord still for slip-cueing, making minute adjustments during beat matchingand mixing, and pulling the record back and forth for scratching. They arealso very commonly used, simply as decoration for when a record isn’t on theturntable. DMC – the founding company of DJ culture and forerunners of the DJ/ Club movement !
