    Trends Observed at the A.C. DJ Expo

    Noticed more ipad-related stuff this year, including a powered speaker with an ipad attached to the back of it. Can't really see this for D.J.'ing, but it could make a good stationary system (like at a wedding ceremony).

    When They Ask For 80's - you play...

    I got into the D.J. business in 1983-1984. One of the reasons was because I loved the music so much that was being released at the time. Let's see: Madonna's first album (Holiday, Borderline, Lucky Star, etc.) Michael Jackson's THRILLER Prince's PURPLE RAIN Bruce Springsteen's BORN...

    Awesome new iPad app

    I've been using the Algoriddim Djay app for about three months now. Works great! I like that it's all touch-screen (versus using a mouse on a notebook computer). Some things I like: 1) You can "scratch" the turntables with your fingers. 2) You can cue the next song by using the...

    Do you use an iPad?

    I just bought a refurbished Ipad (original version) on Apple's web site for $349. It looks brand new! I installed the "Deejay" app, and am having a ball! :) I'm tempted to try it out at a gig this weekend.

    Electric Slide songs

    Actually, the "Super Electric" version sounds like the one on the "Carousel" album. I remember the first version below came out as a 12" single, and I was playing it before the second version came out...

    Electric Slide songs

    There's the original version (from her "Carousel" album), and a later "Super Electric" version that was released as a 12" and CD single. I've used both myself. The Super Electric version is more upbeat, and is the one I usually see DJ's in my area use.

    Electric Slide songs

    I like to use "Bus Stop/Electric Slide (Radio Edit)" by Mr. C The Slide Man. I've also seen it done to a song off the FAME soundtrack called "Red Light" by Linda Clifford.

    Mackie's SRM450v2 or QSC K12 your opinion.

    I'm still using original RCF ART300As that I bought 12 years ago.

    Peavey IPR Series amps 7lbs.

    Looks like Peavey has a new Impulse powered speaker based on the IPR amp technology. Priced pretty reasonable too, and only 39 lbs. Has anyone tried it yet?

    The iPad

    I'm still using CDs, but the iPad might convince me to make the plunge to going computerized. As a D.J., the touch screen looks more interactive and appealing to me than using a keyboard and mouse. And it looks like there will be no shortage of D.J. apps to try out...
