A few short hours ago, I turned on the Stanton T.120c turntables and my newly acquired Pioneer DJM-T1 Traktor Mixer for yet another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts March 2014.

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".

Native Instruments is offering a $50 discount on the new Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and the S4 MK2 from now until the end of the month (April 30th) or until supplies last.
