Red Bull 3Style IX Japan finalist YB has delivered a tutorial for DJcityTV showcasing a unique scratch technique. The turntablist developed a way to scratch using the tempo slider and transform effect found on Pioneer DJ equipment. According to Pioneer DJ, he is the first to perform the technique.
YB is known for pushing the boundaries of what can be done on a pair of CDJs. In adition to competing in the 3Style, the accomplished battle DJ was also a finalist in the 2018 Goldie Awards.
Watch YB’s tutorial above.
Duck Sauce, the duo of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, has delivered a one-of-a-kind new single and video. “Mesmerize” is another one of the duo’s signature funky, disco-influenced house tracks built around a repeating vocal sample.
The animated visual, which is slightly NSFW, is a mind-altering trip that starts off as a typical Duck Sauce club gig. Over the course of the video, the duo realizes that they may be in a simulation. Their journey then takes a turn for the metaphysical in ways that need to be seen to be understood.
Watch Duck Sauce’s “Mesmerize” video above and download the track here.
In the latest episode of DJcityTV’s Made From Scratch, DJ ND shares a cool technique using basic scratches that sound complex when combined. The combination of baby scratches, chirps, and transforms create a pattern that sounds good fast or slow.
Watch the tutorial above and grab DJ ND’s scratch tool here.

Pioneer DJ has announced the DJM-S11 mixer, the successor to its game-changing DJM-S9. The two-channel, four-deck battle mixer builds off the success of the previous iteration with some major additions while improving on its predecessor’s key features.
Most notably, the DJM-S11 comes equipped with a 4.3-inch touch screen that displays waveforms, a track browser, FX, and more. The display has a day mode option, similar to that of Serato DJ Pro, which makes the screen easier to view in daylight. An industry-first feature called “Deck 3/4 Control” allows access to decks three and four via the touch screen, to enhance the creative possibilities of live mashups and remixes.
Another notable addition is that the mixer includes dual USB inputs for connecting CDJs and controllers. It features a number of new pad modes as well.
Pioneer DJ will also be releasing the DJM-S11-SE, a special edition that is visually reminiscent of their highly-regarded DJM-909 mixer.
The DJM-S11 is available now at a suggested retail price of $1,999 USD, while the DJM-S11-SE retails for $2,099 USD. In related news, Serato has released Serato DJ Pro 2.4.1, which includes support for the mixers.
