About DJ Qbert

DJ Qbert is widely considered to be one of the most influential DJs of all time. Qbert gained worldwide recognition for his ability to amaze audiences with his turntable skills and later pioneered performing as a turntable band. A former DMC World Champion, he has long been sought out by equipment companies to help develop innovative products for DJs. He was the first to develop an all in one turntable and mixer combination, the QFO, which sparked an explosion of products that catered to turntable musicians. As a recording artist, Qbert has released several concept albums which showcase his continued evolution in turntable music. Qbert has been teaching at ArtistWorks since we started in 2009.
