The Meth boys are back………Review later
Apparently Paul Van Dyk’s laptop crashed while he was playing a set at Godskitchen. Now this may seem funny at first, but its not when u realize how many top djs use laptops in their sets. It took Djs a long enough time to accept CDs to spin, but vinyl is consider more true to form. Vinyl is expsensive to by and even more to get your songs pressed on it. Everyone can create a song and save it onto a CD and play it at the club nowadays.
Spinning vinyl is just plain hard. While the CD’s are a little easy even with the beatmatchin. Laptops bring new creativity of playing music to the masses. Only time will tell if the almighty DJ will be replaced with two ipods that can mix themsevles.
Oh wait I did that post already!
XM radio added a chill station to their great dance music lineup. They play moby, Everything but the girl, DJ shadow, and sooo on. Basically its a great station to listen to after a hard nite of clubbing. At times I couldn’t even tell the station from the Jazz station. Which is a good thing when u are trying to relax.
Also XM is going to broadcast the Ultra Music festival live all the whole weekend it happens. Now i wished i could record my xm feeds. I’m sure that some nasty dj sets will happen.
Male vocal and dance music can be very tricky. Sometimes the pairing can come out great f perfectly timed. If not, the song is completely crap. Which is why there are more female singers in dance music. But this song has a thumping beat with a great vocal. This song has been played alot this year already.

Parade of the Athletes
His music is unique and always a crowd please. He is a pioneer in the way he creates new ways to push dance music to a new edge. Some say that he has replaced the Oakenfold as the worldws most soldout DJ. Some say that he is a trendsetter. I say just place his music and watch how the crowd response. Absolute crazyness.
So you go to a club. U see the DJ. Hes not your typical DJ. Why? he keeps on playing with his laptop during his set. He has a werid setup of a turntable, cd player and that computer..
So his setup looks like this.
Well thanks to that little box between the computer and the mixer and decks, you can now spin your mp3s directly on to vinyl or cd. Which every you prefer. Most of the top Djs do it nowadays and its a great way for medium level DJs to show off thier collection of rare dance remixes or produced tracks. Off course there is a competitor in Serato’s Scratch, but Final Scratch is the most widely used. The box is magical and does on the fly conversion from the decks to the mixer from the computer to max sweet mixing music. An alternate way to mix that is gaining more users.
Getting back to the basics….which means everyday posting. Starting on the 7th at nite
Ipods are great. Walkmans of the future. I think its great to carry your entire music collection in your pocket. I personally own a shuffle, cause there can be a thing as too much music. ….But how does the Ipod do in terms of Djing? wel it comes down to these two setups…..
Yea i was thinnking about the possiblities too when I saw the picture on the right. “No vinyl, No CDs, No problem. My Djing days just got a hella of alot easier, what out i’m gonna be a superstar!!!!”
Well .. looks can be deciving. the Ipod mixer on the right still has alot of growing pains to go through. The review I heard went too stellar and basically said to wait for a better model. No remember this “tool” is reviewed for professional DJs, not the hard working addicts like the rest of us. Will it replace Technics 1200s or some CDJ 1000s, prob not. But it will help u bring in friends to get the party started. OH i think that the setp on the left is the best for now…until Apple decides to make some cash off of DJs with a new Ipod again…..
