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.

Francis Preve Interview
Making the move from writing to DJing and producing may seem like an odd transition, but when you consider the career arcs of Dave Dresden, Bill Coleman, and Joe Bermudez, it starts to make more sense. As contributing editor for Keyboard magazine and writer of three books, Francis Preve covers the latest technologies. As a sound designer for Korg and Ableton, he creates the sounds that other producers use. As a producer, he has worked with circuit Roland Belmares and commercial Joe Bermudez.
Paul Oakenfold Interview
With a career spanning more than 20 years in electronic dance music, Paul Oakenfold is clearly an icon. Movie soundtracks, hit singles, massive tours, mixed compilations, remixes and productions by Oakenfold have expanded the way people view djs and electronic music.

Vestax VCM-100 USB Midi Audio Controller Review
They say everything gets better with age, and DJing is no exception. I can remember the days of lugging around crates of records weighing 50 pounds each. Of course I was in better shape then. Nowadays, the older and wiser me carries an all-in-one system comprising of a laptop, a USB MIDI controller and a pair of headphones altogether weighing less than 10 pounds. Wonder how that's possible? Let me introduce you to the VCM-100 from Vestax.

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.
