DJ’s and Music Technology heads take note. The following demonstration is performed by a master at work, a trained professional. Nevertheless, YOU MAY TRY THIS AT HOME! Pick one up and enjoy!

The Bridge is a new technology born of a Serato & Ableton partnership. My boy Paze Infinite first hipped me to using the Akai APC, cause he uses it to rock live performances of music he produced in Ableton, but DJ Revolution shows us just a few of the endless possibilities for serious turntablism, if you were to add this to your DJ rig, now that Serato and Ableton can be linked via The Bridge.

Play the clip below and enjoy some nasty turntablism by one of the illest DJ’s in Hip Hop, DJ Revolution. Underneath that you will hear how some veteran DJ’s Kenny Dope, Jazzy Jeff & ?uestlove feel about The Bridge. If you are a DJ/Producer yourself, especially if you already use Ableton and Serato separately, then check out http://serato.com/thebridge for more information.

 


Philadelphia Sound Konnoiseurs (?uestlove, Jazzy Jeff, J Rocc, Diplo & DJ Spinna)

This was the scene as “PSK” – 5 of the world’s most awesome DJ’s – came together to form Voltron for one night of madness, July 3rd, 2011, at Club Voyeur in Philly. Concieved and organized by legendary DJ ?uestlove, the event was the first of it’s kind.“What we decided was to throw a Rave,” explains The Roots drummer/producer.

According to Grammy winning producer and DJ Diplo, “These are the guys who got me to DJ in the first place, you know? It’s a big deal for me, to be able to DJ with these guys, in the hometown.”“If I DJ’d with Jazzy Jeff or ?uestlove or J Rocc – if the four of us were playing a party together 10 years ago, we would have to have a seperate backstage area for just the records and CD’s we were playing with,” Diplo elaborated, on why he now uses Serato.

“Philly ain’t never had a party like this … everybody played a whole bunch of different stuff, man, it was incredible,” expressed Jazzy Jeff.

The Serato crew were on hand and filmed the legendary night, plus interviewed all the DJ’s of PSK – the Philadelphia Sound Konnoiseurs. For live footage of the mix masters doing their thing, plus interviews with each of them, Read More!
