In my day job at DJ Techtools, I recently made a tutorial video for the official DJ Techtools VCI-400SE Midi mapping for Traktor Pro 2. I also did all the mapping work, so it made most sense for me to do an in depth video tutorial. Check it out below and enjoy:
Prefuse 73 and Blockhead (who is really who I came to see) both came to 103 Harriet on March 16th 2012 for Re:Creation to play some live tunes in a dj style setting. I took some lengthy videos of each of their quality sets. I’d normally write a little bit more about each of them and what was going on in their sets; but honestly, I am way too tired right now.
As you can see in the videos below, Blockhead pulls off a little mashup action while Prefuse likes to get down with his filtering and effects (in this case with the help of Dnae Beats as can be seen above), and both produced enjoyable results. Check ’em out below.
A new track just surfaced on Four Tet’s soundcloud account titled “Nova” and billed as a collaboration with his UK electronic buddy Burial. The new song will be released on Four Tet’s label Text Records as their 13th release as noted in this tweet by Mr Hebden himself. Out of all the Four Tet & Burial collaborations to date this one might just be my favorite. Check it out for yourself below.
In related news, Burial recently released three new tunes on his Kindred EP, which is definitely worth a listen (or twenty). You can take a listen to the songs and/or buy them at Hyperdub’s store site here.
