Following on the popularity of last week's gear setup with Loco Dice, we're bringing you another popular artist gear setup. Today, Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland better known as The Crystal Method share their setup and why they travel with this gear. One thing that's notably absent from this current setup is their famous CDJ guitar (DJTT got an up close and personal look at it when we first interviewed the Crystal Method). The Crystal Method has been known to use a variety of gear for their live performances. This setup seems to be focused on portability and is full of gear that can easily fit into any DJ booth and also used on the road.
It's been a while since we've taken a look at what famous DJs and producers tour with. Today we take a look at the gear setup of Desolat founder, Loco Dice. Loco Dice travels pretty light and the one thing that readers should take away from this setup is to always have a backup solution. There are 2 separate laptops, multiple hard drives and a USB flash drive, making it pretty hard for any technical issue to keep Loco Dice from performing. Overall the setup has remained the same since we last saw how Loco Dice performs. Check out the full gear breakdown.

We made sure to note the voting window a few weeks ago of Resident Advisor’s top 100 DJs poll – and today they’ve released the results.

While on the CNTRL tour, Ean was able to shoot today’s video with German DJ and producer Loco Dice.

Watch the full video inside!
Yesterday marked the beginning of the CNTRL: Beyond EDM tour in the state of New York – and while inclimate weather held up the first gig, it didn’t stop the crew from DJing in their hotel room and streaming it live to the world. It turns out that the tour will actually feature livestreaming content […]
At DJTT HQ, we’re constantly asked when controllerism-focused artists will come to your towns across the US and Canada – and we’re excited to share the news that Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, and Ean Golden have all teamed up to build an incredible joint tour, CNTRL. The tour starts at the end of October, with […]
Designed and hosted by the infamous Pete Tong, it’s hard not to think of the IMS in Ibiza as a TED convention for dance music and DJs. The summit, which took place last week, is a yearly gathering of industry mavens with a central goal of advancing discussion on electronic dance music culture. IMS has […]
