Mojaxx Reviews Pioneer DJ’s DJM-V10-LF

Pioneer DJ DJM-V10-LF

In this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes an in-depth look at Pioneer DJ‘s new DJM-V10-LF six-channel mixer, which is a variant of the original DJM-V10 model.

The DJM-V10-LF’s crossfader has been removed in exchange for longer channel faders with optimized curves and a new custom-designed curve preset to ensure smooth and accurate mixes. This allows the new 60 mm shaft slide faders on the DJM-V10-LF to extend further down the top plate than the 45 mm faders on the original mixer. This development enables users to control the audio source volume from each channel more precisely.

Watch Mojaxx’s review above.

D’Maduro and DJ Stressy Remix D’Angelo’s ‘Brown Sugar’ and Lucy Pearl’s ‘Don’t Mess With My Man’: DJcity Exclusives

Dutch DJ/producer D’Maduro and Sweden’s DJ Stressy add soulful lounge vibes to two beloved R&B hits. D’Maduro flips D’Angelo‘s 1995 hit “Brown Sugar,” while DJ Stressy flips super-group Lucy Pearl‘s Don’t Mess With My Man.

“Don’t Mess With My Man” has always been a favorite of DJ Stressy’s. Regarding the laid-back vibes of the track, he notes that he “hopes listeners like this one in the car, at the gym or at a bar.” As for D’Maduro, he feels that, in remixing D’Angelo, “the biggest challenge is remixing a classic without losing its essentials. This one deserved a smooth funky/soul makeover with a touch of bounce.”

Rogerson Remixes Major Lazer’s ‘Bam Bam’: DJcity Exclusive

Dutch DJ/producer Rogerson has delivered a remix of Major Lazer‘s “Bam Bam,” featuring French Montana and BEAM. This DJcity exclusive goes into tech-house territory with a pumping bassline.

The original track is from Music Is the Weapon,  Major Lazer’s just-released fourth album. It marks three years since hip-hop hitmaker Montana and the tropical bass trio collaborated on “Leg Over” featuring Mr. Eazi and Ty Dolla $ign. That song received the Nigeria Entertainment Award for “Hottest Single of the Year.”

“I was searching for a song that I could remix, when ‘Bam Bam’ took my eyes, as it was on #1 in the record pool,” Rogerson says. “It already had the Afro-type vibe that I like, but I wanted to combine that with some full tech-house sounds. I had to find the right way to transition between the styles, but I’m very pleased with the result!”

Da Phonk & J Rythm Remix Daddy Yankee’s ‘Tu Principe’: DJcity Exclusive

Dutch DJ/producer Da Phonk and Los Angeles’ J Rythm have given a banging, dembow-driven refresh to Daddy Yankee‘s Zion y Lennox collaboration “Tu Principe.” Upon its release in 2005, the song cracked the top 40 of Billboard’s Hot Latin charts and has remained a Latin club favorite ever since.

Da Phonk notes: “When I heard this classic banger, I knew right away that I could make a pumping 2020 remix! With the special touch of my buddy from LA, we made a remix with heavy build-ups and a banging moombahton drop.” J Rythm continues, “We felt [like] keeping the original vibe but flipping the drop into a moombah kinda style, by chopping up some vocal samples to create lots of energy.”
