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
