Serious question — do any DJs use Kensington locks?

As the assorted offerings from the DJ industry get bigger, arguably better, but definitely more expensive, the issue of security comes to mind. Obviously, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t leave gear unattended, in the clear view of passers-by in the back seat of your car, or generally out of your sight at all. If you do, you only have yourself to blame for anything that happens.But beyond this, we’re talking about securing...

Dear Panasonic — let’s talk about an SL-DZ1200 MK2

The fallout from NAMM 2019 has been immense. The DJ world waited with bated breath to see what the gathered hive mind of media types would think of the new DJ tailored SL-1200/1210 MK7 turntable. Well… hmmm. From a DJ perspective, the feedback has been less than positive. Some of you clearly like what you saw, but our own ProfessorBX lamented the drop in quality. And even the ever-positive Phil Morse from Digital DJ...

#10YearChallenge and the Vestax mixer that never was

My need to comply with whatever the latest “challenge” has been thrown down in social media is nil. I have no desire to post my first and last profile pictures on Facebook, or to tell you what the last thing I ate was and that would be my porn star name (fish pie). But the current #10YearChallenge thing (clearly I’m doing it wrong) got my attention, so I decided it would make a decent...

Let’s just file this under because why the hell not

TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 Record PlayerOur hardware team taking the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 turntable mode a little too seriously with this steppy 7". The track is "Tribulation" by Theory and DanJah Wise on the 45Seven imprint ?Posted by TRAKTOR on Wednesday, 9 January 2019No, you’re not looking at an official Traktor accessory. This is definitely a matter of “because we can”, but it doesn’t mean that they should or will. But this nonsense is often...

The new Denon DJ blog has the best writers

Hello… is this thing on? Just checking. Hello, I’m Mark, and you may remember me from really not that long ago but seems like ages. Frankly there’s just not that much going on that any of us finds interesting right now. Don’t worry — we’re all busy working on content for DJWORX. But sometimes opportunities come along outside of our cosy empire that are worth investigating.One such opportunity to come my way is an...

Is the BPM Show really back? Hell yes.

When the news broke last year of the venerable BPM show being shuttered in preference to a number of more market specific ones, it’s fair to say that after the initial shock and actual sadness, there wasn’t exactly a great amount of surprise. Despite splitting the more pro sound and light element away from the DJ and production sectors, it was a show that had seen its best but was not what the market...

INSIGHT: The story of NI’s Haptic Drive

A story that has written itself is the perfect way to end the week. And an excellent piece has landed in my social channels courtesy of Native Instruments. The real boundary pushing wow factor of the upcoming Traktor Kontrol S4 mk3 is the new Haptic Drive that delivers physical touch feedback through a motorised jog wheel. And NI has written a blog post that goes into the story of the Haptic Drive, especially the...
