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.


THE COMMENTS SECTION

Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
