MK Stands: The Ultimate Isolation System for Turntablists

Tips and tricks

Back in 2017, Mojaxx reviewed MK Stands’ isolation boots for the Technics 1200 and 1210 turntables. While Mo and turntablists like ESKEI83 love the boots, they’ve also been critical of them because they raise turntables slightly higher than the mixer.

As a result, MK Stands released an updated version in October called the Pro DJ Isolation System. The new boots put the mixer and turntables at the same height while offering better stability and protection from vibration.

On this two-part episode of Tips and Tricks, Mo gives an updated review of the original isolation boots and takes a look at the new system. ESKEI also makes a cameo.

ESKEI83 Drops New Single ‘Make the Record Skip’: DJcity Premiere


ESKEI83, the 2014 Red Bull Music 3Style world champion, has released a new single, “Make the Record Skip”. It’s the first in a series of releases that combine club and bass music, turntablism, and live performance.

The single has already received support from influential DJs like Four Color Zack, Thugli, and WiDE AWAKE.

ESKEI told us his motivation behind the track and series:

“As a DJ with a long and successful turntablism and DJ battle background, performing my tracks live was always very important, and still is. I scratch, do work with a sampler and drum pads, and use turntables. My sets stand out because I don’t just play tunes, I actually do something. In EDM and bass music, it’s uncommon for DJs to do more than just play tracks.”

He continued:

“The new single is a hybrid of heavy bass music that will work for all bass heads all over the world, but also impress the #RealDJing fans because it has scratches in it that will be performed live at my shows. It also features old school record sounds.”
