Turn up your cool factor to 11 by taking your child to Kids Dig on Saturday, Oct. 29, at Josey Records.

Kids Dig

It will be a day of discovery for the youngest hip-hop set. Little ones will learn about vinyl records and record digging, which is an art. They will also get some hands-on lessons in handling a record, putting a needle on one and learning about the different parts of a turntable.

DJs from around North Texas are ready to help your little one learn. That includes DJ Christy Ray, who has learned a bit herself as she continues a tradition; her mother is the legendary DJ Spinderella of Salt-N-Pepa. Others on the list include DJ Menace (!), Tums, DJ Mike B, DJ Phyfe and DJ Flash 45s.

The event is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the record store at 2821 Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway, #100, in Farmers Branch.

The event will demystify the world that DJs inhabit with scratch demonstrations, showcases, hands-on DJ setups and sampling stations. Gear and accessories will be on display, along with interactive guides from Josey Records on how records are made at their facility. There will even be a dance crew from the folks at Studio 74.

Too Fresh Productions, which produced the We From Dallas hip-hopumentary, is putting on the event with help from Josey Records and the Keep Spinning DJ Academy.

Organizers say they want "this day to be a platform to where parents can pass this tradition down to their kids."
