Classic DJ Gear: Pioneer DJ DJM-909 Mixer

Pioneer DJ changed the game when it introduced the DJM-909 mixer in 2004. Equipped with 50 effects and a touchscreen, the DJM-909 was ahead of its time.

Not only did it become a favorite among club DJs, but it also paved the way for future two-channel mixers by Pioneer and its competitors. That includes the company’s extremely popular DJM-S9.

Watch Mister Remix break down the DJM-909’s features and impact on this episode of DJcityTV’s Classic DJ Gear.

In March, Technics assembled an orchestra of 30 DJs to perform a routine in celebration of Japan’s LP Record Day. The historic ensemble included world-class turntablists like DJ QBert, D-Styles, DJ Kentaro, Mr. Switch, and DJ Swamp.

After watching the video, fans asked DJcityTV host Mister Remix about the equipment that was used in the performance. All of the DJs were equipped with Technics SL-1200 turntables, but their mixers were less recognizable. One of them was the Technics SH-EX1200, a two-channel mixer that was popular in the battle scene from the ’80s to mid-’90s.

Watch Mister Remix examine the SH-EX1200 on this episode of Classic DJ Gear.

In December, DJcityTV launched a new series called Classic DJ Gear that’s hosted by Houston’s Mister Remix. The first episode looked at one of the most popular and influential mixers of all time: the Vestax PMC-07 Pro.

For February, Remix returns to examine another Vestax mixer: the PMC-06 Pro. Released in the mid-to-late ’90s, the PMC-06 Pro was popular with turntablists due to its slim design. Its thin profile was especially appealing to beat jugglers, as it reduced the space between the turntables. It was also appealing to turntablist groups who were tight on desk space.

Remix also looks at the even thinner PMC-06 T, which he says was the most “bizarre” mixer he’s ever seen.
