Rapper Flo Rida—who you may know from such places as Samsung TV events, clubs that can't even handle him right now, and NBA Finals games he is kind of not invited to—is selling some weird DJ toy called Beamz® By Flo. From what we can tell from watching this video advertisement three times, it plays from a selection…
If you're desperate to be scratching while you're on the move there's a new place to turn. GET IT? Ugh. Philips and Armin van Buuren just teamed up to release a new portable controller and sound system for iDevices. An updated version of other Philips releases, the M1X-DJ System has a lightning connector and…
Pushing the limits of what can be considered an iPod/iPhone dock, Philips' FWP3200D is like an all-in-one DJ stage show with a pair of 5.25-inch subwoofers that glow and pulse to your music—and a set of digital turntables letting you mix and scratch your beats.
The DJs of the world can breathe a sigh of relief, because if this video is any indication, it's going to be a long time before they're in jeopardy of losing gigs to robots.
Being a DJ is likely one of the best possible vocations a human can achieve. You're paid to make people dance, right? But these people are usually drunk and awful. Here are their dispatches from the dance floor. [MetaFilter]
Hello, party programs! Are you ready to get down? Put your hands in the air if you are ready to get funky—digitally! Perhaps you would like a rap party melody? That is no problem! Motion-controlled party cool time!
The not-so-cleverly-named turntabletar is something that should never be used IRL. Still, there's no denying its novelty. Two midi turntable controllers have been melded with a mixer and strapped to something resembling a guitar neck. But instead of fret bars and strings, the neck has a crossfader, which, of course,…
Looking not entirely dissimilar from the Danish Aiaiai TMA-1 headphones I liked so much last year, these Nixon RPM headphones have 40mm drivers tuned for DJ use, along with articulated joints for twisting every-which-way.
Confident in your taste? Stick your mug in front of Automatic DJ, a program written by Hunch's Ben Gleitzman that recognizes your face, looks you up on Facebook, and uses your profile info to put on a song you're guaranteed to like. I didn't know computers could do any of that stuff. You can grab the code on GitHub.…
Did I say 1980s? I meant 2011sies, sorry. I bet the sweaty Daft Punk guys are looking at DJ Kid Chameleon's Macintosh Plus and iPad helmet in envy—especially if there's a fan component squeezed in there.
For 99 notes, wannabe DJs can get a pair of point and looping controllers designed for use with laptops, CDJs, turntables and mixers. They glow bright red/green, look like dice (kind of) and roll dem phat beatz out. Or something.
Hercules, purveyor of various devices, wants you to know the DJ Console Mk4 is the most easily transportable from A to B turntable in existence. Hyperbole? Yes, but there's no denying this is one diminutive set of 1's+2's. Updated.
Wacom, the tablet and touchscreen company that's made a name for itself in graphic design circles, is about to enter the discotheque.
I learn something new about robots every day. These Kuka industrial robot arms have been used to power amusement park rides, and apparently, make fine German avant-garde electronic DJs.
The Gizmo: The iBuddy is a portable iPod DJ mixing station, with inputs for two iPods, two MP3 players or a combination of the two. The three knobs control things that are strictly to do with DJ talk, like "reverb," "flange" and "autophase." As crap as we are with DJ lingo, we know it sounded damn good. It was also…
Here's what you do if you think your Vestax mixer looks dull as day-old dog doo: mod it. One of the guys from DJ Tech Tools swapped his boring old black knobs for arcade game buttons. How-to video is after the jump.
Numark's iDJ2, a mixing table that allows you to mix up tracks from the same iPod is to be launched next month. We touched on the prototype earlier this year, which got a thumbs-up-with-reservations from DJ Scott Paradis, but this is the final version. Key features, and price, below.
Those old-tech turntables keep hanging on, and the Rega P3 and its kick-ass RB300 tonearm have established quite a name for themselves in this esoteric category. Now the product has been further improved, with a higher quality synchronous motor, a floated plateglass platter and a range of lovely colors. And if you…
