Graeme Sinden has been making waves in clubs around the world since 2008 and recently he caught up with Serato to talk about his current productions. Sinden has a unique way of blending DJ elements into the way he produces and the routine video below shows how the Pioneer DDJ-SX2 can evolve from a 2-deck controller into a sound design tool to create a his brand new track "Hands".
We all enjoyed last month's DMC Online Finals routine from Vekked (which went on to win the Online division), and now he's back in the finals for the DMC Team Championship as one half of The Fresherthans (his partner-in-crime is DJ Brace). Watch the full thing below and enjoy some serious technical turntablism skills.
DJing and controllerism routines have the same issue that a lot of other digital media have online: getting heard amongst way too much noise.

At NAMM Rane announced that the company would launch two new mixers this year, one of which is a revival of the highly sought after TTM 57 mixer. The mixer follows up one of best-selling units of the digital DJing era. Recently Serato met up with the electric trap band, Keys 'N Krates who put the mixer to the test. Watch the performance below and see the potential of the TTM 57 MKII - as well as their ingenious live band style performance.
