DJ Worx

www.djworx.com is a result of scratchworx.com evloving to target a broader audience and it has been around for a while now, but lately I've been going there more and more for DJ related news and I really like what I see.
The latest reviews have been fresh and early, very detailed and extremely good. They mainly focus on hardware and not that much on techniques and culture like DJ Techtools or the full spectre of Digital DJing like Digital DJ Tips.
If it's not in your bookmark it probably should be.
KUDOS to the guys at djworx for making an excellent site!

Pioneer New Wireless DJ System XDJ-AERO

So Pioneer launched this video yesterday showing of their new product: The XDJ-AERO! I just took a VERY quick look at it and jumped to conclusions as usual.
It looks like Pioneer is vamping up their Record box software to include a wireless deck control for smart phone via WLAN which is controlling the new XDJ-AERO.

It's kind of like the SmartGlass feature from Microsoft, but then again no...

Unless I want to jump rope, skate or hang out at the store while I'm doing my DJ set, which almost never happens, I think I might want to be by my controller when I DJ.

Confused, buy YEAY for new technology. Maybe something useful comes out of this.

Twitter.dj in use

A couple of weeks ago I posted about twitter.dj which is a new way of totaly embrasing the social media experience while DJing. Posting all your played tracks continuesly and effortlessly to Twitter. Super easy to set up and super easy to use! I've been playing around with it for a couple of weeks now and it is a pretty cool tool.

Setting it up (On PC):

1. Install the software from www.twitter.dj
2. Set up Traktor Broadcast with following settings:

Click to make it full size
3. Authorize Twitter.dj with your Twitter account by writing the authentication code provided by Twitter.
PS: You can access the preferences by right clicking the Twitter.dj icon in your icon section on the task bar.


  1. Put ID tag information on all your tracks! Most tracks bought online come with ID tags, but ripped tracks or tracks that are downloaded illegaly will need to be properly named.
  2. If you don't want to share a track name. Just write the title in another field like "comment 2" and write something else in the title and artist tags.
  3. Remember that you can incorporate hash tags and user tags in your title/artist tags.
  4. Use a display to show what you're playing when your performing! I use www.Twitterfall.com which is a OK way to show what's been posted to twitter. (Inputs are welcome!) Use advanced filter in Twitter to limit your output. (e.g. "from:username")
How I show my Twitter feed...

Happy tweeting!
