First Look: Phase Integration with Serato DJ Pro

Two years after first making waves at the NAMM Show, Phase manufacturer MWM has announced a collaboration with Serato. MWM’s needle-replacing hardware is now an Official Serato Accessory, which means it can now communicate with Serato DJ Pro directly through USB.

The upgrade will enhance the overall performance of Phase with Serato thanks to improved HID protocol. MWM also teased other features that will roll out later, including LED customization and more.

On this episode of Tips and TricksMojaxx takes a trip to NAMM in Anaheim, California to report on the collaboration between Serato and Phase. Watch above.

Canadian DJ duo THUGLI has just released a pack of six party-ready edits, covering a wide variety of tempos, vibes, and energies. Everything from Rick Ross and Rocko, plus Da Baby, Tinashe, Young Thug, and more, are covered.

When asked about their latest releases, Pat and Tom noted the following: “Our approach with the remix/edit pack was from a few different angles. We wanted to make a wide variety of sounds/genres/tempos and make sure that there was something in there for every DJ, whether you’re playing a big festival set or a low key club night. There are new songs that needed a bit more of a boost and old ones that we thought could use a new flavor. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Hope everyone can find something that works for them in there!”

Tracks are available for download via DJcity here:
