XDJ-RX2 Is A Reality...But Is It The Upgrade I expected?

In a word. No.

That is the immediate thought I have got from the video above from Pioneer this evening - there is no send/return - which would have allowed you the ability to use external controllers such as the Korg Kaossiator - or for that matter the Pioneer iPad app for the RMX-1000.

But perhaps I'm asking too much.

The touchscreen looks pretty - I was quite sceptical about these being on the XDJ range when they first came out - but people who own such as the XDJ-1000 tell me that they are very durable so perhaps something that I could warm to in the long term.

For me though, think my plan to get two XDJ 700s and an DJM 450 mixer continues to be the way to go. And as for those two usb sticks on the right hand side of the mixer instead of being in their respective separate decks - just looks a bit...meh.

Robert Hood - The Bond We Formed (Slam Remix)

Part of Soma’s 25th anniversary comes probably the most sought after track from the compilation celebrating the milestone. Robert Hood’s seminal track, is given not one but two remixes by the Glasgow duo!

This one brings together Hoods original drums with Slams unique sequences.

Feiertag - Retrospective


Further apologies for the lack of posts over the last few weeks. I have had a further breakdown some weeks ago, and have been signed off since then. Am due back at work tomorrow - but not before a decent bike ride this afternoon, and some further posts - revealing some of the stuff I’ve enjoyed listening and occasionallly playing out.

Thought I’d post this up - its come out just this friday just gone - on LSOE - and although Retrospective is quite a chilled, breaky track - 77a Charterhouse Street is a much more techy track - proper early door track at a festival without doubt!
