Russian DJ/producer AJ Flips Paul Hardcastle’s Freestyle Classic, ‘Rain Forest’


Russian DJ/producer AJ has performed a creative routine for DJcityTV using Paul Hardcastle’s 1984 freestyle classic “Rain Forest.” The 32-year-old manipulates a basic test record to create a sound similar to the synthesizer used in the original track. He does so by controlling the rotation speed of his Vestax PDX-3000 MKII turntable via MIDI using Native Instruments’ Maschine Mk3.
