    My New NI Kontrol S4

    I recently purchased the Traktor Kontrol S4 by Native Instruments and I think it’s pretty dope. I had bought the Vestax VCI-300 two summers ago to have something to use to do house parties or anything where I didn’t feel like lugging turntables. It was a piece of shit and it

    Serato vs. Traktor

    I’ve been using Serato since 2005, but I was always intrigued by Traktor and the additional features it offers. I love Native Instruments products and I am an avid user of both Komplete plug-ins and Maschine. On my last trip to Miami during the Winter Music Conference, a ...

    Future Music & Music Tech Magazines

    I have been subscribed to Future Music and Music Tech magazine for about three years. Printed in the UK, they can cost $15-20 on newsstands, so it makes sense to become a subscriber as it’s much cheaper. The articles and reviews are always on the cutting edge of the music ...

    I love listening to BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mixes. Since 1993, Pete Tong has hosted the now legendary show that has brought the world such classic mixes as Paul Oakenfold’s Goa Mix, David Holmes’ Rare Groove mix, and Ashley Beedle’s Reggae mix to name a few.  The show gained
