It’s not often that audio equipment (that isn’t a musical instrument or amplifier) becomes an arbiter for an entire cultural movement or musical genre; like how for example the Fairlight synthesizer for electronic music, or like what the Fender Stratocaster did for rock music.
In this case, a record player was the driving force behind a new forms of musical expression- influencing everything from nightclub DJs like Frankie Knuckles of Chicago house fame, to the invention of hip hop and the birth of sampling in the rough and tumble decade of the 1970s.
