We're excited to announce that KUSH SESSIONS is now on every other Friday instead of Wednesday. On board this Friday is the Legendary DJ/Producer ONIONZ!
ONIONZ's early gigs were characterized as legendary nights and early mornings at almost every NYC venue imaginable. Production wise, ONINONZ has released over a staggering 200 singles and remixes over the last 15 years in the studio. His status on the decks is set in stone while his unfathomable understanding of sound and musically creating an emotion has awarded him international recognition in the world of electronic dance music.
With the establishment of his own label Electrik Soul in 1994 and his solid production work gaining attention ONIONZ continues to take the dance music scene to the next dimension.

We're also honored to have on board with us this week, Odessa's RAJE. This DC transplant is the host of Origins on Proton Radio and has relocated to NYC to spread the gospel of his unique brand of Electronica. (http://www.odessadc.com/)

From the birth of hip hop, sampling has been the backbone of the industry, but when the law catches up with ‘thieving’ musicians, what will happen to the treasured music? Go behind the scenes with De La Soul & Mix Master Mike to see what happens next.

Deejaysoul: Live Martin Luther King Jr Mix

Please forgive the timestamps info, since most are estimate of the mix because I was mixing 3-4 track at once.

Be aware also, I had to reduce quality of the audio track due to the limitation of Mixcloud and me wanting to put up the whole mix (over 2 hours) without a break in it.

Here's a link to better quality and downloadable.

Gemini CDJ-700


GEMINI RELEASES FLAGSHIP NEW FAMILY OF MEDIA PLAYERS 
January 13, 2011, Edison, NJ – GEMINI DJ, a division of GCI TECHNOLOGIES and the birthplace of the original tabletop DJ CD player, unveils its breakthrough new family of media players at NAMM 2011.

Today’s DJs need the ultimate in flexibility. Gemini’s new family of media players allows DJs the ability to play the most common audio formats across several platforms. Combining the ability to access, search and perform their music in several formats (WAV, AIFF, MP3, or AAC) from a CD, USB memory device, or SD (SDHC) card with powerful playback controls, Gemini’s new line of media players gives DJs more control and options than ever before.

The CDJ-700 is a tabletop media player with advanced controls such as loop adjust and slip mode. The CDMP-7000 is an all-in-one media workstation with the traditional two-decks-and-a-mixer layout DJs are used to, along with two large, touch-sensitive platters with LCD displays, and controls for cueing, looping, and scratching your music. The CDMP-2700 is a 2U dual rackmount media player that combines the features of the family in a compact mobile design.

“Looking at the modern DJ workflow we rethought what a media player should be,” said David Cabasso, Vice President of Product Development at GCI Technologies. “Our newest family of media players gives DJs more control and options than they’ve ever had before.”

The new line of media players have tons of input/output options including digital outs with 24-bit/192 kHz A/D converters. High-end components include slot-in CD-ROMs that allow the quickest transition between discs, and a powerful DSP-effects engine with six mind-blowing effects. The new line of media players can be used as a MIDI controller with any DJ software.

The CDJ-700 tabletop media player, CDMP-7000 media workstation, and CDMP-2700 dual rackmount media player pricing is TBD and will be available through musical instrument, electronics, and DJ retailers in the first half of 2011.

Serato SL4

Finally, somebody made something I was thinking about a few years ago a soundcard with two input for two laptops, so DJs can switch over without disconnecting anything!


















TWO COMPUTERS & FOUR DECKS USING YOUR FAVORITE MIXER
The SL 4 connects four vinyl turntables or CD players to your computer and the mixer of your choice. Using special control vinyl, CDs or MIDI controllers, you can scratch and mix files from your Mac or Windows computer's CD or hard drive. This intuitive system replicates the traditional DJing experience for "real feel" usability. With unparalleled performance, stability and audio quality, you'll know why thousands of DJs worldwide choose Rane with Serato Scratch Live.

The SL 4 is the first standalone DJ interface with two USB ports for seamless DJ changeover and back-to-back performances. Superior sound is delivered with high quality 96 kHz, 24-bit audio. Built-in galvanic isolation between USB and audio, with turn on/off muting, ensures that only the purest interference-free audio signal is heard. Low-latency ASIO and Core Audio drivers allow you to use the SL 4 as a studio production tool with multiple third-party software applications. The SL 4 is masterfully crafted by Rane for the discerning DJ.
