Well, if anyone still subscribes to this blog and was wondering where I have been, the obvious is I have been absent. Sometimes life gets in the way and you forget that you have a blog, but that does not mean I have given up on this site. Not yet. Expect me back in the next few days and I will come back and give you updates on the same old things that I have always presented on this website – things that have to do with pop/geek culture, music, movies and the events. Here is to my return. If you are from the States, hoped you all had a great 4th of July weekend. I know I did.

Watch out now! I’m a big Doctor Who fan. So check out these videos before the episode drops on Christmas Day on BBC America.
Here’s a video of DJ Shiftee showing us what you can do with Native Instruments’ Kontrol Z2 and Maschine when paired together. One word: Ugh!

So this past fall, Native Instruments comes out with their very own controller/mixer called the Kontrol Z2. I didn’t know what to think, but there were a few reviews and a video from DJ Craze that showed what this mixer could do (video below).
But I “still” wasn’t sold on whether is was worth checking out or not. So I saw this video from Ean Golden to see what this mixer could do (video below):
As you can see from Ean Golden’s video, this mixer has a simplistic integrated set up for your Traktor Scratch software (if you are a part of the Traktor Scratch family) and it is affordable. It sort of removes the clutter of having an X1 and Kontrol F1 right off to the side of your turntables. So this product looks like it’s worth checking out to me.
If you need any more info on this product, check out the following links below:
Check out this video from Fuse‘s youtube channel, called “Crate Diggers,” featuring DJ J. Rocc of the World Famous Beat Junkies. Dude got mad vinyl. Dope ish right here.

This past spring and summer, Serato and Rane worked together to bring the DJ community the SixtyOne andSixtyTwo mixer(s). And with the World Famous Beat Junkies representing their products, D-Styles did a little showcase video for them on youtube.

Like The Pharcyde? Like A Tribe Called Quest? If so, check out this mash up from Amerigo Gazawy from Gummy Soul. What I like about this “mix tape” was the fact that this dude took his time to blend the instrumentals of Tribe’s various works with Pharcyde’s a capella’s from “A Bizarre Ride From The Pharcyde.”
