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 couple weeks ago our own DJ Blaze did an unboxing and first impression video on the Reloop RP-8000 professional MIDI turntable. Today’s video comes straight from Reloop, and presents renowned DJs, DJ Angelo and DJ Fong Fong, as they transform into the disc jockey versions of Mario and Luigi. The two turntablists perform on the new RP-8000 and demonstrate some of its new features in a creative way. This video combines a nice amount of comedy and DJing, while promoting the new product from Reloop.
UPDATE: Congrats to @NikkiDCincy for winning the SOL REPUBLIC headphone giveaway contest!! Stay tuned for more giveaways to come!
American DJ was on fire at this year's NAMM show last month as they released over 40 new Lighting products for the mobile DJ and permanent installation applications. The new Inno Spot series were a very promising set of moving heads LED Lights that were on display that will be offered in various sizes, prices, and features to appease many user's needs.
A few short hours ago, I turned on the Stanton ST-150 turntables and Traktor Z2 Mixer for yet another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts January 2014. I had my camera rolling to give you all some turntable blessings to start the new 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 January 2014 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.
Every year there is a magical event held on a magical boat and it goes by the name of HOLY SHIP!!! This year, the ship hosted names including A-Trak, Just Blaze, Diplo, Flosstradamus, with a special guest appearance by Pharrell. After watching this video, the public gets a taste of how truly wild this event can get, but if you can look past all of the bouncing body parts (we won’t blame you if you can’t) there is actually some dope DJing taking place.
Today’s turntablist video comes from the beautiful and talented DJ Lady Style out of Paris, France. To be honest I had never heard of her before this video, but after ten seconds of watching her cut it up I was an instant fan. Homegirl throws it down over Kavinsky’s Roadgame track, and lets the Internet know she isn’t playing! With sponsorship from Vestax and UDG, this will not be the last we hear from the young diva.
At this year's NAMM show, Behringer expands it's Nekkst studio monitor lineup to include a few new sizes and options for DJ's and producers on a budget.
