The new V-MODA XS on-ear headphones sport a very sleek and slender design which also folds into a very compact package for easy transport and storage thanks to the all-metal Cliqfold hinges also found on the popular V-MODA M-100's.
The new Pioneer DJM-900SRT Serato DJ Mixer has almost all of the cool features of the DJM-900nexus but with an internal Serato DJ Soundcard that is capable of Digital Vinyl Playback of up to four CD or vinyl timecode decks within the full new Serato DJ software now with DVS control. The Pioneer DDJ-SP1 is designed to be used as a "sub-controller" that works with a primary Serato DJ controller or Mixer+DVS setup to offer the advanced features found on the Pioneer DDJ-SX controller to all Serato users. The DDJ-SP1 is the perfect companion controller for the DJM-900SRT mixer and we've got both in the lab for the full unboxing & review treatment.
The Pioneer DJM-T1 is a heavy-duty Traktor Scratch Certified two-channel professional-grade DJ mixer with built-in Traktor MIDI controls for many of the advanced DJ software features such as loop, samples, hot cues, effects and much more. I've decided to purchase the DJM-T1 for my personal collection and now we're ready to customize the looks to make it fit in with the rest of our setup. With the help of our friends over at 12inchskinz.com we were able to come up with a cool silver and blue design with the DJbooth.net Logo squarely in the middle.

The annual Winter Music Conference held in Miami, Florida, can be one of the craziest places in the country to be in early spring, and this year was no exception. While there is a broad range of music being showcased, there is still a heavy hip-hop influence in the 305. Scratch Academy Miami was able to host a Scratch Summit during WMC and brought through hip-hop legends including 2 Live Crew, DJ Cash Money, and more. The summit included speech panels, DJ battles, showcases and other DJ oriented activities, all hosted by the renowned academy. It’s a beautiful thing to see turntablism thriving in sunny south Florida. Peep the recap video below.
