We recently hosted another open house in our San Francisco pop-up store, featuring tutorial sessions, the new Kontrol S8 hardware and a smoking performance from DJ Teeko, who expertly combines turntablism, controllers, and analog synths!

Shiftee and Enferno came out with a comeback to SNL about being a DJ. A-Trak is on a mission to separate the real DJs apart from the ones who just press play and throw their hands in the air. Today Craze released a new scratch routine using two Technic 1200s, a Kontrol Z2, and Maschine MK2 that […]
