As I dotted I’s and crossed T’s on our review, DJ Angelo swooped in and made a hostile takeover of the review units I had. What happened next is captured in full 1080p HD video and most ably demonstrates the MIDI buttons on the Reloop RP-8000 turntables, as well as Angelo’s own brand of funky turntablism.
The video starts in proper turntablist style and sets the stage for the Public Enemy based routine. Subtle use of loop rolls soon gives way for full on hot cue action combined with the Reloop RMX-80‘s filters.
I really like this set. I’m a less is more kind of guy, and prefer DJ sets to be clean and funky rather than over-ambitious click fests. And Angelo nails this short but sweet routine perfectly. The subtle use of the buttons shows the creative possibilities without becoming a controllerist demonstration.
As far as our review goes, words are being tidied up and the photography needs a little Photoshop love to make it pop. So it’ll appear once Reloop have done the customary fact check which could be during the holiday, or once everyone is back at work.
