Slip-cueing

Slip-cueing is a turntable-based DJ technique that consists of holding a record still while the platter rotates underneath the slipmat and releasing it at the right moment. This way the record accelerates to the right speed almost immediately, without waiting for the heavy platter to start up. Slip-cueing was introduced to the disco scene by Francis Grasso.

~ Goldman 1978

While the technique of slip cueing had originated in the broadcast industry several years before, it was Francis Grasso who changed the style by releasing the next song on beat, creating a continuous flow of music for a nightclub dance floor.
