Pioneer has officially announced their brand new analog vinyl turntable called the PLX-1000. This new Turntable by has most of the original layout of the iconic Technics 1200's that DJ's are familiar with along with some Super-OEM DNA and other minor improvements and adjustments to set it apart from the rest of the pack. The PLX-1000 also has the familiar Pioneer CDJ looks with the beautiful brushed black finish and silver/nickel accents.
Earlier today, I turned on the Stanton T.120 turntables and the Custom Pioneer DJM-T1 Traktor Mixer for another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts June 2014. I am here in the second DJ room of my new residence in NJ and I had to get my camera rolling to give you a quick freestyle mixing session with some of my favorite tracks of this latest release. Watch the performance video then download & stream the mixtape inside.
My personal turntables of choice are the Stanton ST-150's and for very good reason. They have very high torque motors and they are built like tanks with a pretty solid track record to boot. The folks at the SAE Beat and Breaks Battle also share the same sentiments as the (straight-tonearm counterpart) Stanton STR8-150's will be used as their standard turntable for the National competitions this year.
The brand new Mixvibes Cross DVS package that works with any DJ soundcard has now been released and can be purchased at retailers everywhere for the new low price of only $99. The new Mixvibes Cross DVS package comes with the Mixvibes timecode vinyl and the powerful Mixvibes software in order to get started. The user needs to add a mixer, a soundcard, a computer, turntables/CDJ's, and music to start spinning. We have a new Mixvibes DVS package in the Lab for the full review treatment, but we've unboxed these vinyl on camera to see what's included in the package...
As turntables and vinyl seem to be hitting a new strides with newfound success in the DJ and consumer markets; the manufacturers who create these turntables are giving users options for all budgets and performance levels. Reloop has introduced a new video to accompany their new Direct Drive Entry level turntables with USB connectivity (for transferring a vinyl music library to the computer) called the RP-2000USB. These aren't the powerhouse Super-OEM RP-6000/7000/8000, but they cost less than half of those models and they can still get the DJ-job done at a lower cost.
Earlier today, I turned on the Stanton ST.150 turntables and the Traktor Z2 DJ Mixer for yet another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts May 2014. Even though we just moved to a new location, I had to get my camera rolling to give you a quick mixing session with some of my favorite tracks of this latest release. 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/stream my latest May 2014 mixtape
Many DJ's and turntablists who use vinyl will be very excited about this new product... The new company called Kutmarks have come out with some reusable vinyl labels in many different styles that can be attached and reattached to vinyl over and over again. The cool new Kutmarks labels all have good markings so that scratch DJ's can remember their places while pulling off turntablist tricks and juggles.
