Have you spent hours in your bedroom fine-tuning your live routine, wearing out your crossfader, and brainstorming the most clever wordplay you could come up with? If so, DJcity has a prime opportunity for you to showcase your talents to a worldwide audience.
DJcityTV’s Bedroom Sessions mix series has been highlighting turntablists and their creativity for years. We’re looking for you to continue that tradition.
All that is required is recording a 2-4 minute video of throwing down a routine in a party-rocking/club style that incorporates scratching and juggling, tone play, wordplay, or other related skills. No need to edit the video yourself, just record and send your raw footage to “email@example.com” and our in-house video team will handle the rest.
Check out some previous Bedroom Sessions routines here and start practicing!

Via vinyl synthesis, Type has innovated playing and sequencing a vinyl record like a synthesizer with the new features of Ableton Live 11. Vestax PDX-3000 and Technics SL-1210 turntables are impressively used to sync the beats of two distinctively different tracks to demonstrate the possibilities of vinyl synthesis. The Vestax PDX-3000 plays the melody of Daft Punk‘s 1995 single “Da Funk,” which morphs into the bass arpeggio of Donna Summer‘s 1978 classic “I Feel Love” because the analog pitch of the Technics SL-1210 changes the speed of the drums and Ableton Live 11 — via the Tempo Follower feature — stays in sync.
To pull off this impressive feat, a few pieces of hardware are required. Foremost, a turntable with MIDI pitch control — the Vestax Controller One / PDX-3000 or Reloop RP-8000 — is essential. An audio and MIDI interface is needed to connect the audio from the mixer and control the MIDI turntable. As well, a MIDI controller is key.
Ableton Live 10 Suite / 11 Standard requires MIDI Envelope, Utility, and Auto Filter plugins to allow for this work to occur. Plus, a vinyl with a synth tone in the locked groove — commonly found in Battle Breaks / DJ Tools is key to allowing this DJ skill to be performed.
The tools and skills he used in the demo are available for free on his website. Type has also included a detailed breakdown of how he accomplished this.
Watch the three-minute video above.
