Mojaxx Takes a Look at Ortofon’s New VNL Cartridges and Gold Smokin Shells

In this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes a first look at Ortofon’s new VNL cartridges, designed with turntablists in mind. They’re currently available in an introductory pack containing one cartridge and three stylii, allowing users to decide which of the three available stylus options they prefer.

Plus, he reviews the incredibly bling 24-karat gold-plated headshells from Smokin Shells, which pretty much fall into the “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” category.

Watch Mo’s first look and review above.

Red Bull Cancels the 2020 Red Bull 3Style World Finals

Citing concerns about “health concerns” and noting “the advice of health authorities around the world,” Red Bull has canceled the 2020 edition of the World Finals of their popular 3Style World DJ Championships, which had been previously rescheduled for 2021. There has never been a cancellation in the event’s decade-long history. Emerging from the brand’s music-as-culture aims, the contest has become the world’s largest open-format DJing competition, featuring two-dozen finalists from around the globe.

Competition cancellations for the event’s World Final (previously scheduled for Moscow) were an April 2020 Coronavirus casualty. However, the likely inability to host packed, indoor nightclub competitions with hundreds of attendees over several rounds proved to be the determining factor for the cancellation of the 2021 attempt at the competition. Hosting empty venue or online-only DJ sets as competition would not necessarily be dissimilar or unique compared to any of the thousands of DJ sets already streaming online.

No further details have been offered regarding what could occur in place of real-time World Finals competition. However, Red Bull 3Style has suggested revisiting the 2020 National Finals on Mixcloud.
