About three years ago, we decided to use the Styleflip.com services to change the appearance of our all-white Korg KM-202 mixer. We installed a black Styleflip vinyl skin with a DJbooth.net Logo and some other minor changes. That skin still looks just as good as the first day we applied it. Now we're going back and removing the black skin for a new skin that matches the look of the classic Super-OEM Stanton T.120 turntables. In our included video, you will see the removal of the original skin and the application of the new skin which was a great match to our turntables.
The new Guitar Center superstore in Brooklyn, NYC hosted an event last month on October 24th to unveil a brand new 2500 square-foot section of the store that is completely dedicated to the Serato DJ experience. On hand to host the red-carpet event at the Brooklyn store was none other than world famous artist and DJ Biz Markie (pictured with the VP of Guitar Center). Those on hand at the event were able to use all of the different products in the Serato DJ lineup while also being able to chop it up with some other famous guests that happened to stop by.
On Halloween night, I jumped on the Stanton T.120c turntables and my Vestax PMC-05proIV Mixer (with a new Traktor Flux Mode Mapping) for a quick freestyle session featuring my songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts October 2013. I had my camera rolling to show you some of the skills. 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 October 2013 mixtape.

The Reloop DJ brand has been cranking out some very good quality DJ equipment for the past few years and they’ve really started to excel in the Digital DJ controller and DJ headphone realm in a very short span of time. The Reloop team has produced two-channel, three-channel, and four-channel DJ mixers that haven’t all found their way over to the United States just yet, but the new four-channel professional grade Reloop RMX-80 mixer is finally here in the DJbooth.net Lab for the full review treatment.
The new four-channel professional grade Pioneer DJ mixer that is meant to be the successor to the extremely popular DJM-700 is finally here. The new Pioneer DJM-750 brings many new upgrades to the table over the original including a few additions from mixers in the top of the Pioneer DJM range. The DJM-750 takes some of the new features found on the Pioneer DJM-850 such as the Sound Color FX and Boost Color FX at an even more affordable price. Check out my HD-Video and written review to see if the DJM-750 makes the grade.
Serato DJ 1.5 has now been released. This means that the era of Serato Scratch Live and Itch is coming to an end. Last month Serato announced that they would combine all of their Serato based DJ software into one software to rule them all which is known as the Serato DJ 1.5 release. The new release will now work with the new Pioneer DJM-900SRT, DDJ-SR, DDJ-SP1, and the Rane Sixty-Four. Of course all of the other Serato DJ controllers are also able to work with the new Serato DJ 1.5 and there's a few bug fixes and housekeeping items addressed in this update as well.
The Reloop RMX-80 is a 4+1 Channel DJ Mixer with a high-quality build, 13 performance effects, large LCD display, and a host of other functions that many different style DJ's can appreciate. The Reloop RMX-80 has lots of inputs and outputs including two Microphone inputs and two separate headphone outputs as well. We'll have the full HD-Video review completed within the next few weeks, but watch my unboxing and first impressions video in the meantime to see the RMX-80 fresh out the box.
