My current DJ/Studio space has to compete with my bedroom space. In the very near future that is going to change with a brand new studio room and dedicated space for a DJ booth. It is still under construction, but the area has already been marked. The Genesis of my new DJ Booth.
With the new Pioneer CDJ-2000s and Recordbox it has become far easier to create loops. But you still need to trigger the loop at the right moment, and on some occasions that can be a bit tricky. Say you have some song that needs a loop for mixing and there is only one chance to trigger the loop and let’s say that the trigger moment is also off rhythm. To make it more complicated you need to start the next song or acapella also at the same time which may be on beat or in a different way off rhythm.
NKV Nuenen organized for the third time in a row it’s successful Blind Date Tournament. During the weekend of July the 3th there was again a great opportunity for korfball players and also a great opportunity for party animals to go crazy. For the Saturday evening closing party it was The Energy Twisters VS. DJ House Container.
Beatgridding or warping, a lot of people today prepare their tracks before playing them live. Not my most favorite job, it always gives me that boring old school homework feeling. But once done the results you can achieve are of course worth the suffering.
I recently ran into a website that offers Traktor Beatgridding and Ableton Warping as commercial services. You send your tracks and them, or actually him (www.steven-james.com), will beatgrid or warp them for you.
A few weeks ago I purchased the Pioneer CDJ-2000 players and won a HDJ-2000 with my invoice number. That all thanks to the great team of Bax-Shop. A few months back I wrote that me and my Sennheiser HD-25 SP1 are forever. As in, till death do us apart. Or am I going to commit adultery with the new Pioneer HDJ-2000.
With a magnesium alloy and a price that goes through the roof they do have something special at Pioneer. So I did a test and compared it to the Sennheiser HD-25.
This month’s acapella is going to be a very simple but famous acapella, since everybody knows the Simpsons. The song Do the Bartman was part of the Simpsons album that was released in 1990. I didn’t have the numbers sharp but it seems that the single hit a lot of number 1 spots in the charts all around the world. In the Netherlands it got as close as number 3.
