Just yesterday afternoon, I jumped 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 November 2013. I had my camera rolling to give you all some turntable love. 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 November 2013 mixtape.
My favorite DJ headphones of all time just keep getting better and better. V-Moda has unveiled the new BoomPro Hi-Fi detachable professional microphone, the new CoilPro Performance DJ cable that extends the reach of the headphones up to 12 feet, and new XL Memory Cushion earpads for even more comfort and better sound isolation. These accessories are now available at V-Moda or at Amazon and they make perfect companions for the V-Moda M-100 headphones that we recently reviewed or for many other compatible DJ headphones. We have all three accessories in the Lab and we have a cool new product feature video to breakdown every accessory in-depth.
Just last week we finished the in-depth HD-video and written reviews of the new Native Instruments Maschine Studio Music Production MIDI Controller. We found that the Maschine Studio is an extremely powerful device that can help music makers produce professional tracks using this very tactile production centerpiece. The powerful Drum Synth that's included in the new Maschine 2.0 allows users to tailor their drum sounds to suit their individual style.
The Numark NS7II professional Serato DJ controller was finally released a few short weeks ago and we've got a new unit on the way to the DJbooth.net Lab for a detailed video and written review. In the meantime, Numark has released a few tutorial videos for users and potential buyers to catch a glimpse of some of the advanced features found on this new Flagship controller. The Numark NS7II is being billed as the best controller ever built and with it comes the same motorized platters as the original and 16 velocity sensitive pads that correspond perfectly to the advanced features found in Serato DJ 1.5
The Serato team has just released the new Searto DJ 1.5.2 update which adds a list of bug-fixes, new DJ controller support, and the new iZotope FX Expansion Packs. This new update features scrollable FX drop-down menus, support for the Vestax VCI-100 MKII, Numark MixDeck Quad, and the brand new Pioneer DDJ-SB Serato DJ Intro controllers. Check out the full press release and FX demo video to see the new updates first hand.
About three years ago, we decided to use the Styleflip.com services to change the appearance of our all-white Korg KM-202 mixer. We installed a black Styleflip vinyl skin with a DJbooth.net Logo and some other minor changes. That skin still looks just as good as the first day we applied it. Now we're going back and removing the black skin for a new skin that matches the look of the classic Super-OEM Stanton T.120 turntables. In our included video, you will see the removal of the original skin and the application of the new skin which was a great match to our turntables.
This year's Guitar Center (ATL) Spin-Off DJ battle competition was a huge success. The battle was held on Sunday October 27th at the Marietta, Georgia Guitar Center retail store and they had a packed house with spectators out the door trying to catch a glimpse. Legends such as Jaycee, DJ Sky, Shakim, Andre 3000, DJ Scream, and more were on hand to take in the festivities. There were a total of eight competing DJ's and we've got a couple of the sets and results to share with you for this week's Turntablist Video Friday episode.
For this edition of Turntablist Video Friday, we're checking in with our very own resident DJ Caesar as he hosts his show WeekendWork on Shade 45 on Saturdays from 10-12. During one of his shows the hip hop team Smif-N-Wessun stopped by to give a complete interview that goes into the specifics of their career, the state of the game today, and a bit of some history that we all may remember. Peep the full video interview and be sure to tune into Weekend Work on Saturdays on Shade 45 via Satellite Radio!
