Over 11 years ago the world lost one of the greatest DJ’s to ever be behind a pair of turntables. Today, on Jam Master Jay's birthday, true homage is paid.
We're back once again with a new "On Da Spin" Webisode with DJ K Styles. During this online series, there will be feature interviews along with other footage from known and unknown DJ's working in the industry. Each webisode will showcase the DJ and gives them a chance to give their opinion and insight on their musical experiences. This particular webisode features DJ K Styles in action behind the one's and two's as she discusses her start in the DJ realm and her outlook on the DJ game.
The Pioneer DJM-900SRT Mixer and the DDJ-SP1 auxiliary controller make for a really strong pairing when used with the new Serato DJ 1.6 software. To prove that this the new mixer and controller combination really gives users complete control over the Serato software when used in a DVS solution, Pioneer has enlisted the assistance of UK DMC Champion JFB and 3X World DMC Champion Mr. Switch to pull off some really creative sets so the masses can see the capabilities.
The Serato Team just keeps releasing new Serato control vinyl in brand new colors and styles to match all turntable DJ's setup. Just yesterday, Serato released the new Yellow (PMS116c) vinyl which run only $34. As with all the latest vinyl releases, the Yellow vinyl comes with the new CV02.5, Performance Series Control Tone for the best tracking and tightest control available. Check out this post to get a pair for yourself before they're all gone!
TJ Mizell is not only the son of legendary Jam Master Jay of RUN DMC, but he also happens to be one of the most dope DJs in the game right now. In his new video he is featured scratching and beat juggling over the Williamsburg Bridge, as he powers his turntables on the J train using a car battery. This type of stunt has never been caught on camera before, and to our knowledge, never even attempted.
Earlier this week I decided to hit up the trusty Stanton ST-150 turntables and Traktor Z2 Mixer for yet another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts December 2013.

Every month I'll try to complete a quick freestyle DJ session while choosing songs from my newest Monthly Mixtape series called "DJ Blaze - Blazing Cuts". Check out my quick freestyle video session and download my latest December 2013 mixtape. My Blazing Cuts mixtape series will consists of the hottest tracks that I chose for a particular month from the numerous songs on featured right here on DJbooth.net.
This week’s turntablism video comes straight from sunny San Diego, as DJcity gives us another installment of their Cutting Room series. Acclaimed DJ’s including DJ Costik, Cwitch, DJ Happee, Impakt, Rayted-R, and DJ Slowhand bring the poolside vibes in this dope compilation. All of these guys have made a name for themselves in the turntablist world, and this video shows why. Beyond the scratching work, Costik did some nice editing with the video samples, while Happee provided the instrumentals. Stay tuned for additional cuts from these guys, any many more.
