I want to dispel a bit of the mystery behind modern Dee Jaying.
There are many really great iTunes 'DJ's' with playlists out there, but this video shows what actual mixing looks and sounds like. ( save stylistic differences )
This is a quick video of my computer screen while spinning. The software is called Serato. It receives time-code data from special vinyl records, and sends back a audio signal to the mixer that is matched exactly with the movements of the record. You still use a normal mixer and two turntables. You still match beats, cross fade, and play around the same old visceral way. The biggest and most cost effective difference, is that you don't have to buy or lug around vinyl records, you simply assign an MP3 to the control record.
That said. . . vinyl is still the shit. crAck! PoP!
I plan to record these pretty often when I'm just messing around. Seems like a more effective way to communicate than just posting an MP3 mix.
P.S. Cheers to sharing music! Just as in design, its all in the transition.
