As you can see I’m still playing with patterns which have evolved from the autobahn scratch. When I first saw the autobahn scratch on Skratchlopedia Breaktanica I just thought was a nice combo, I never thought it would open up the doors to so many interesting new scratches for me.

The autobahn scratch is a scratch DJ Rafik came up with and became well know with the release of Qbert’s Skratchlopedia Breaktanica DVD. On the video he demonstrates the scratch both fast and slow, after many people debating the subject a video was then released on the internet of Rafik showing that they were actually to slightly different variations. Since I showed how the slow autobahn is done in the One Record Movement, Many Possibilities article I just going to add this quick post to show faster one too.
It’s simply a quick forward and backward, followed by a long forward, followed by a quick backward and forward, followed by a long forward.
I first started using when I decided to try and do a chip flare with a chirp at each end, this is done by doing a chirp followed by a 1 click flare followed by a chirp backwards followed by a 1 click flare backwards. After learning this pattern I started to find all the other possibilities. Here I’ll try and show you what possibilities are available with just this 1 record movement pattern.
