British turntablists/producers Jon1st and Shield have dropped a live performance video from Amsterdam Dance Event 2019. The set was recorded for the DJsounds series, Pioneer DJ‘s inside look at the global DJ scene.
The duo’s live set involves breaking down the elements of their original tracks and recreating the beats live, incorporating turntablism elements as well. They use a variety of equipment including turntables, drum machines, samplers, and sequencers.

On Tuesday, the Boiler Room London hosted Craze, a three-time DMC World Champion, and Jon1st, the 2013 DMC Online World Champion. The event, which was their debut on the show, was intended to put a spotlight on the art of turntablism.
Jon1st opened with an hour of drum and bass and glitch-heavy tracks, while Craze dropped an hour of hip-hop and bass music, including his usual critique of modern DJ culture.
Watch both of their performances above (Craze’s begins around the 1:01:10 mark).
You’ve got to give it up to Pioneer DJ. Since introducing the DJM-S9 in August, the company has enlisted an impressive list of turntablists to showcase their mixer with short yet convincing routines. So far, world champions ESKEI83, Shintaro, Kentaro, and Mr Switch have showed us what the S9 is capable of, and now it’s Jon1st‘s turn. Watch above as the 2013 DMC Online Champ demonstrates some of the S9’s onboard Beat FX and Serato DJ FX with a track by his group, GOALS. As our new team member DJ Reddi put it: “Jon1st never disappoints.”
