Pioneer DJ has released a video that explores the evolution of electronic dance music and how technology has changed the role of DJs. It is the third and final part of a documentary series about the company’s history.
The sixteen-minute piece features commentary from veterans such as Laidback Luke, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, DJ Shadow, Skream, and Paul Oakenfold.
Topics discussed include the early days of DJing, the transition from vinyl to digital, how rekordbox improved the CDJ experience, and the blurring of the lines between DJing and producing.
