Introducing Promo Only's Intro Edits

If there's a DJ out there who doesn't dread the hassle and frustration of trying to beat- match with the scant intros that kick off most of today's newest singles, we sure haven't met him. Solutions are equally scarce: just who do you have to know to get the hottest new releases – not some cheesy remixes -- but the hottest new original versions complete with the beats you need to do more than drop it on the one?

The The Pioneer DJM-900nexus ...Redefining live mixing

Budget and bedroom DJs may like the idea of using an iPad as a cost-effective way to get their mix on, but when it comes to serious sound processing, serious pros roll with the Pioneer DJM line (it ain't for nothing you'll find more DJM-800s in more DJ booths than any other mixer). This month, after much behind-the-scenes speculation, the DJM-900nexusarrives to up the 800's ante. We could go on all day about this beast's performance upgrades; suffice to say the key improvements center on a variety of new on-board effects controlled through an X-Pad touch screen, increased audio fidelity and direct computer connectivity. 

Here's that first look…

In addition to upgrades to Pioneer's familiar FILTER and CRUSH effects, the nexus boasts four new digital-age offerings capable of bringing studio-quality sound and sequencer-style tricks to the club: The massively popular NOISE from the DJM-2000; the seriously lush SPACE reverb; DUB ECHO (a new tape delay effect); and GATE/COMP – a threshold control that limits any sudden peaks, or beefs up to blend drastically different production levels seamlessly together in the mix.

Channel-assignable BEAT EFFECTS bring on a whole new world of real-time control, making even extreme on the fly processing more reliable and creative than ever (check out the video!).

New Effects for a New Generation
DJs looking for studio effects no longer have to gamble with processor-intensive software to get superior quality. REVERB brings lush studio quality with a two-minute tail, pitched room size control and input frequency filtering; SPIRAL provides pitch echo with feedback looping to create psychedelic breakdowns and interludes with a single tap; SLIP ROLL, a DJM-2000 favorite widely considered the ultimate beat-mashing tool, puts rhythmic slicing and dicing at your fingertips; and more.

Fully TRAKTOR® compatible for plug-and-play simplicity
The DJM-900nexus is a TRAKTOR SCRATCH certified compatible mixer, meaning scratch control functions that use a time code disc can be accessed without the need for an authorized Native Instruments Audio Interface and all the extra connections.

For some, upgrading to the 900 will be an involuntary autonomic credit card flexing exercise. For others, the price tag may merit some careful consideration. This much we know for sure: With laptop DJ software a staple of the modern beat- slinger, the DJM-900nexus appears to be just the answer Pioneer needs to keep its logo front and center.

List $2399.00. Street $1999.00. For further info visit

In the Spotlight:
DJ/Producer Evan Gamble Lewis

A year in the life...

We first had the pleasure of speaking with Evan Gamble Lewis in February of last year. It was then we learned of the relentless work ethic that had landed Evan a host of creds ranging from MTV interviews, horror/snowboarding movie scores, a nine-month headlining tour of Europe's top mega-clubs, and the right to rub elbows in the studio alongside legends such as Omar Santana, Superstar DJ Keoki, Decoding Jesus, Sonic Trip, and Rabbit in the Moon.

Little did we know at the time Evan was just warming up.

Having been there, done that with a considerable range of techno, trance and breakbeat releases, Evan has since relocated, re-partnered, and recommitted to the priesthood of production.

“I've been ridiculously busy this year,” says Evan. “I linked by up with my old mentor, Omar Santana, we did a lot of break-beat stuff back in the day, to start up a project called The Speaker Tweakerz. We wanted to keep our names in the background to get unbiased feedback on a new direction we were taking.”

That new direction has resulted in three albums and 40 releases. In a single year.

“What happened was Omar was living in St. Louis and I was living in Tampa and we agreed that if we wanted to be serious about this we needed to get a house [in Atlanta], put our studios and savings together and start working.”

The duo's prodigious output and talent soon brought them to the attention of Moist Music, and from there to a world-wide audience already captivated by a viral YouTube video of Omar's head-bobbing, fist-pumping toddler as she enjoys a bowl of chili to the strains of the duo's newest dubstep project, Floor Damage.

You can catch that video (and a smile) below:

Alternative Club.  The Other Dance Music.

Alternative Club.
The other dance music.

Ask most DJs to throw down a dance track and they'll likely lay out a little house or hip-hop, which is all well and good, to a certain degree. Our point being that limiting yourself to four-on-the-floor and breakbeats is kind of like painting with the same colors over and over again. Get the picture? If you're looking to brighten your canvas (and widen your audience), may we suggest our Alternative Club series…

Alternative Club (aka Alternative Dance and Indie Dance) marries the underground sensibility and melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with electronic beats, drawing on club culture while maintaining a strict pop sensibility to create a unique blend of both. The result is a dance hybrid equally at home in a club as at any mainstream event.

It's this pop accessibility and willingness to incorporate other styles of music that puts a more human face on alternative dance, as opposed to the more mechanized feel of most club/dance music -- a new color, if you will, to throw in that next masterpiece.

Featured genres include the latest dance-friendly modern rock, indie dance, backpack hip-hop and dubstep releases.

When the four/four becomes a bore, reach for Alternative Club. The other dance music.

Useless Information! - Fun facts, trivia, or just plain silly stuff!

"Now That's Some Crazy Entertainment!"

From Vaudeville of old to today's Cirque du Soleil, wacky entertainers have always tried to rule the showman's roost. Here are a few acts that fall outside the traditional entertainment genre, but astound, confound, and mesmerize just the same!

David Blaine
Audience members will grow old and gray before they see magician David Blaine pull a rabbit from a hat or saw an assistant in half. What they will see, however, perplexes as much as it entertains, and it often flirts with danger. One illusion called "Frozen In Time" saw Blaine encased between transparent blocks of ice. He remained a human ice cube for nearly 62 hours before being freed by chain saws. How he beat hypothermia is anyone's guess, but he was hospitalized for a week after the ordeal.

Beautiful Jim Key Starting in the late 1800's, Doc Key & his horse 'Beautiful Jim Key' made a strong case for the power of kindness. From 1897-1906, the pair thrilled audiences with Jim's uncanny humanlike abilities. Jim could read, write, sort mail, tell time, use a cash register and a telephone, and perform a host of other humanlike tasks. But it wasn't always so, In 1889, Jim Key was a sickly, near-lame colt that owner Doc Key half-expected to die. Nutured by medicines and an abundance of love, the misfit was transformed into a gorgeous mahogany bay. People were so taken by Jim Key's abilities they joined the Jim Key Band of Mercy to the tune of 2 million members. Their pledge? "I promise to always be kind to animals."

Growing Man

Billed as "the man who grows before your eyes", Clarence E. Willard could control his muscular and skeletal systems with such astounding ease that he could voluntarily lengthen and shorten his frame by some 6 inches! From the 1930s through the 1950s, Willard's ability confounded the scientific community as well as his audiences as he stretched from 5'10" to 6'4".

Signora Jo Girardelli
Known as the "incombustible lady", Signora had a way with fire. Born in Italy around 1780, the fire-eater distinguished herself by performing daring feats above and beyond those of more pedestrian acts. She went to great lengths to prove that she was actually eating or defying fire. Her mediums consisted of nitric acid, molten metal, boiling oil, melted wax, and lit candles. Signora would fill a pan with boiling oil, drop the white of an egg into it so all could see it cook, fill her mouth with the burning liquid, swish it about for a few seconds for added effect, then spit it out where it would instantly blaze up, proving that it was indeed hot oil. Another favorite involved heating a shovel until red hot, setting wood ablaze with it. She would then stroke her arms, feet and hair with the burning-hot shovel. The real show-stopper was when she LICKED the shovel and an audible hiss was heard from her tongue!
