The Pioneer CDJ-900 tabletop multi-player
Hot on the heels of Pioneer’s new CDJ-2000 comes the next-generation CDJ-900 multi-player. Pioneer may have saved the best for last…

If you’re a fan of the Pioneer CDJ-800 – like us – you’re about to fall in love all over again. Here’s why: The new CDJ-900 offers the same legendary quality and playability of the CDJ-800 plus native playback of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF audio files from CDs and USB memory devices, virtually eliminating the need to lug the laptop.

Like the CDJ-2000, the CDJ-900 also includes rekordbox™, Pioneer’s new proprietary music management software, capable of organizing and cataloging your entire music library. Import your files to rekordbox™ and it analyzes and prepares them for use specifically with your CDJ-900. Sweet.
Big plus? rekordbox™ provides song info at a glance on the CDJ’s generous LCD display that makes for quick and easy access by genre, title, BPM, etc.

The Enhancements (at a glance)...

Slip Mode – When activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a loop, reverse or scratch and continues audible playback at the exact time when the loop, reverse or scratch is ended creating smoother transitions.

Advanced Auto Beat Loop – The CDJ-900 generates a four-beat loop at a touch of a button creating a customized sound to provide more time for you to create that perfect blend.

For more accurate tempo control while mixing
, the 900 offers increased increments of 0.5 frames that allows you to set a cue point or loop point with more precision.

To achieve the highest sound quality, the 900 comes equipped with the audio industry’s much respected Wolfson DAC processors, delivering a transparent, accurate audio signal that translates to a new and improved signal-to-noise ratio and increased headroom.

You can see more of the CDJ-900 in action by clicking here.

Suggested retail price? $1600.00. We’ve confirmed street price will be significantly less...

The final word? DJ with yesterday’s technology today and you could be history tomorrow. If you're looking to update your gear we suggest picking up a CDJ-900 right now...

Gets an A+++

Comedian Martin Mull had it right when he said talking about music is like dancing about architecture. Thankfully, thanks to the new medium our e-magazine provides, they’ll be less talk and more listening to what we consider a remarkable new CD from a remarkable talent…

Born in Johannesburg South Africa, DJ Gavin Hardkiss (aka Hawke) now makes his home in the City by the Bay, remixing for the likes of Led Zeppelin, Elton John and The Beatles, performing alongside the likes of Snoop Dogg and The Buena Vista Social Club and releasing original recordings worldwide, the most recent of which, +++, recently caught our ears, courtesy of Eighth Dimension Records.

Drenched in a soulful disregard for convention, +++ draws on a distinctly West Coast blend of Electronica, Deep House, Chill Out, and Psychedelic to offer, as Hardkiss himself describes it, an album at once “romantic and futurist, confident and vulnerable, sexually charged and childlike, anticipating something big to happen.”

Listen for yourself and see why Hardkiss has been dubbed “electronic music royalty” by Wired Magazine.

Promo Only and the Roller Skating Association
Together we’re good business

We’ve always had a soft spot for skating centers. Like a lot of you, a lot of us got our start or heard our first DJ at our neighborhood rink: Jam On It. Planet Rock. Girls. Good times.

These days, we still have a soft spot for the family friendly entertainment rinks continue to provide, through good times and bad, which is why you’ll find us at every Roller Skating Association (RSA) convention, talking with and listening to owners and operators to learn how we can better meet their needs.

They’ve told us of the importance of a well-rounded selection of clean edits. We responded with an expanded selection of exclusive Promo Only Clean Edits. They’ve told us of the fierce battle to draw tweenies and teens away from their video games and computers. We responded with an ever-growing line of music video and specialty DVDs designed to engage the video generation with compelling family-friendly content. More recently we’ve heard of the profit pinch many operators are experiencing. And we responded with a special RSA discount that’s but one of the many perks RSA members enjoy.

But our commitment doesn’t end there. If you’re a current or future skating operator who’s yet to check out all that RSA membership can offer, we invite you to do so – today!

Here’s a quick look at just a few of the advantages RSA membership brings…

  • A list of rink consulting services that can provide you with critical guidance, support and research as you embark on your goal to open a roller skating center. Rink consultants are your key to finding out all the information you need to open a skating center.
  • The Roller Skating Association International’s Industry Guide, a 300 page book developed by the association to assist individuals in opening up a skating center. The book contains information on every aspect of skate center operation.
  • Future skating center operators can now apply for RSA membership and receive a FREE Industry Guide.
  • A listing of affiliate member businesses that provide supplies and services to support the roller skating industry, such as flooring, concession stand equipment, skate supplies and other supplies, equipment and services.
