Having a heritage going back to 2003 , DJWORX (formerly skratchworx) has been the go-to DJ gear resource for DJs of all styles and skills for over a decade. Founded and edited by Mark Settle, the DJWORX team has a collective knowledge base covering decades of DJing from the turntable and vinyl times through CDs and laptops, right up to the finer points of MIDI mapping and iPad DJing.
We’re also a diverse bunch of DJs, and find ourselves quite happy working with all manner of music technology. This means that we have the right reviewer for the right product, and can uniquely offer multiple opinions in the same review.
Be it DVS, MIDI controllers, or advances in tablet DJing, DJWORX has been there to cover every game-changing DJ product in the last decade, often exclusively. It’s fair to say that we’re the only resource that caters to every type of gear for every level of DJ. We feel that DJing is many things to many people, so we don’t limit ourselves to one particular genre or skill level.
The DJWORX headquarters is a stunning gallery style open space in the North of England, and is being fitted out as a fully equipped media suite, designed to boost our content creations needs, as well as those of our industry clients. The wider DJWORX team is based all over the world, with a dedicated USA team, as well as a presence in Germany.
HOW DJWORX WORKS
We’re not a shop, a manufacturer, or a DJ school — we are journalists. Our product is our expertise, and we give it away to you, the reader, for free. We’re not distracted with trying to sell products or services to our readers, and are 100% focussed on delivering only the very best DJ technology related content. DJWORX is recognised by the industry as delivering the most authoritative words and respected opinions with the most independent voice. Both the DJ industry and our readers trust us implicitly to deliver the most constructive and impartial advice.
Our skills are also in demand from the DJ industry to help them bring you better DJ products, be it from market intelligence, creating high quality photography and video, or helping to shape the future of what you use.
Ultimately, DJWORX is the place where the DJ industry and their customers can meet on neutral ground to better understand each other: our comments section is scanned on a daily basis by the very people making the gear you want to buy. And because of the open, honest, and respectful culture we instil, they will happily hear your voice.
BECOME PART OF THE DJWORX COMMUNITY
While we’d love for you to come to DJWORX every waking minute to get your gear fix (set DJWORX as your homepage!), there are other social media based ways to stay in touch and spread the word.
We’re most active on Facebook, posting both our full news and review links as well as interesting news that doesn’t warrant a full story on DJWORX. And like Twitter and Google+, it’s also a handy place to find the latest stories from the site. For those of you who avoid social networks, we also provide an RSS feed.
Obviously we’re into our photography and video too. And on a day to day basis, we drop candid studio shots of our daily life on Instagram. And for the undisputed best in DJ gear photography, check out our DJWORX Flickr page, as well as the older skratchworx page for an archive of all the cool DJ gear that’s been released over the years.
Finally, we sometimes send out a newsletter. It’s rare as we’re still working out how best to use it. But rest assured, it’s guaranteed 100% spam-free. Sign up today!
Finally, if you want to get in touch with us about anything, feel free to drop us a line.
Thanks for stopping by. And enjoy DJWORX!
