Traktor DJ Studio
As a singer/songwriter/dance artist just getting my feet wet in DJing, it's an interesting time to throw myself in the mix. Just as CDs were the new vinyl, mp3 files are establishing themselves as the new CD. I'll save the debate for another day, but it's safe to say that as a novice DJ, the thought of simply grabbing my laptop and external hard drive instead of cases and cases of CDs was very tempting.

Born on September 19, 1926, he will be forever known for his tremendous spirit, his love of the music industry, and the great relationships he formed with other pioneers in the business.
Lady Gaga - 'The Fame'
Lady Gaga crept up on the modern music scene much like a stealthy predator, sure of its prey's inability to sense or to predict it. She let herself be seen a few times as an unassuming and docile beast, something to be comfortable around. She even let herself be heard, her calls and cries as far from threatening as possible.
