Pioneer DDJ-SZ Serato DJ Controller

As nice as this controller looks and Im sure performs, its overpriced. For $2000 you can pick up another controller with a laptop.

What’s in your bag?


Another look into one of my other dj bags. My most used setup, it has everything I need in all-in-one system. I can literally be ready to play in less than 5 minutes, as long I have the space to place the controller, which is about the size of the average turntable.

What’s in your DJ Bag?


This is something I haven’t done in a while, showing what’s inside of my bag. This almost typical what I would use at a gig, unless I’m using CDJs or Turntables, but thats rare for me. I prefer to use controllers, since I can work on my own gear and not deal with mistreated/over used gear in most venues I have played in.


From top left to bottom right: Stanton Uberstand, Native Instruments F1*, Allen & Heath XONE:K2 Controller, two Native Instruments X1s*, VS pouch, Gigaware USB2 hub, Radio Shack 3′ RCA cable, Custom shorten USB cable, Pioneer HDJ-2000 Headphones & custom cable with dedicated right-angle adapter, 500GB Samsung Momentus XT Hybrid Hard Drive & Macally FW800 HD Case, two usb cables, four custom shorten USB cables (zip tied together), 11″ i5 Apple Macbook Air, power supply, power cord, 30 pin Apple iPhone cable,  FW800 Cable, Apple Thunderbolt to FW800 adapter, USB mini power supply, GoPro Hero3 White Edition, 3rd Party tripod, Timbuk2 H.A.L. Backpack and business cards
*the knobs have been replaced with larger knobs.

VIDEO MIX // 02/23/13, deejaysoul, Recorded Live on DTFRadio.com

Screen shot 2013-03-06 at 10.22.30 AMThis is something I wanted to do for a long time, and somewhat have been doing, by reposting the broadcast from the original ustream feed. I decided to step it up a bit and use some HD cameras to record my sets for better quality and a better perspective for the viewers of the DJ booth.  And its an alternative to just a straight mix, now you have something to watch while the music is playing.

Its formatted for the iPad (960 x 540 pixels), but will play on another devices included HDTVs (but there will be noise), if you’re interested in a higher quality (1920 x 1080 pixels) I can make it happen.

Recorded live on DTFRadio.com
