The new Reloop RP-8000 Professional Hybrid MIDI DJ turntables sport some of the familiar Super-OEM turntable DNA including the same high-torque motor and tonearm that is found on the Stanton ST-150, Reloop RP-6000, AT-LP1240, while still maintaining a “Technics 1200” layout and feel. Even though the Reloop RP-8000 shows some of the same characteristics as it’s Super-OEM brethren, it also has a few additional features that you can’t find anywhere else including: a digital Pitch LED display, eight rubberized MIDI pads, four MIDI layer buttons, and an over-sized encoder knob which can all be mapped to any MIDI compatible DJ software out on the market today.
A few weeks ago you may have noticed our post on DJ legend of Public Enemy, Chuck D. To honor the group, Serato released an exclusive 12’’ Serato x Public Enemy Shut Em Down Vinyl Pressing. Today’s turntablist video features Toronto native and disc jockey extraordinaire, Scratch Bastid, doing a quick scratch routine on the new wax. Short, simple, and dope!
The recently released Reloop RP-8000 Professional MIDI DJ turntables sport some of the familiar Super-OEM turntable DNA including the same high-torque motor and tonearm that is found on the Stanton ST-150, Reloop RP-6000, AT-LP1240, etc. The RP-8000 also has an additional digital Pitch LED display, eight rubberized MIDI pads, four MIDI layer buttons, and an over-sized encoder knob which can all be mapped to any MIDI compatible DJ software out on the market today. The main difference with these new Reloop turntables is that they have a familiar "Technics" turntable look and layout with a brushed aluminum top plate, recessed aluminum pitch sliders, and the familiar aluminum start-stop buttons found on the corners. The Pitch range of these turntables can be switched from +/- 8%, +/- 16% and +/- 50% and there are also start and stop adjustment knobs to control the speed that the platter starts and stops the track.
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.
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. I had my camera rolling to give you all some turntable & controller style love to close out the year. 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.
The 2013 DMC World Championships were held on October 5th at the O2 Arena in the UK this year and it was another huge success. By all accounts the battles were really close this year but there can only be one winner in each category! France's DJ Fly (above) took the top prize in the World Final, Ritchie Ruftone took first place in the Battle for World Supremacy, and France's Mr Viktor, Deska & DJ Hertz won the World Team battle by only one point!
