Leading UK retailer DV247 is hosting an event showing next level production and DJ gear. And as well as famous worthy people, I’ll be there with stickers, chatting about why old is cool again.
While DJing is our passion, we also do other things. Take our own Dan Morse for example — he’s started Press To Jump, a site about gaming culture.
NAMM 2015 starts next week. And the sneak peeks we’ve had tell us it’s going to be a biggie for gear geeks. We’ll be there in force bringing it all to you.
We get it — sometimes a comment gets left that just brings out the red mist, and before you know it, you’ve called out someone with a string of full caps insults and added nothing to the discussion. We’re asking you to stop and think about what you’re typing in. This is the time of the quality DJWORX contributor.
2014 is almost at and end, so we of course look back over the year in which turntables became a thing all over again, companies fed their PR departments on steroids, and some old names fell while others were reborn. Five writers and five different opinions — pull up a chair, grab a brew, and dig into the DJWORX 2014 inquest.
We threw ourselves in the deep at BPM 2014, and decided to film three days of demos in the very controlled environment of the Product Demo Stage. We think we did a pretty good job for our first attempt at such a thing, and bodes well for our imminent ventures in video. But we want to know what you think of how we did, and indeed what you’d like us to do video-wise.
In just 8 days, the DJ world descends upon the NEC in Birmingham for BPM 2014, the premium DJ show in the world. DJWORX is there on the show floor, and if you’re there too and swing by the Product Demo Stage, you’ll get a chance to hang with the DJWORX mob and maybe even grab a handful of small DJWORX treasures.
We don’t mess about when it comes to reviews. Short of “will it blend?”, we mercilessly punish DJ gear. Dan Morse broke out the shower to test claims.
My days are spent writing and shooting. But for one day, I spoke into a microphone at Pioneer DJ Radio. You can listen here.
Musikmesse 2014 demonstrated that like PLASA before it, the relevance to DJs gets less each year. This year was terrible for gear, but amazing for DJWORX.
