Kutcorners and Mr. Sonny James, members of Serato’s artist relations team, were featured on this week’s episode of the R.O.A.D. Podcast. The two discussed how the company’s commitment to listening to its users and giving back to the culture has contributed to its success.
Kut and Sonny also gave tips on how to avoid some of the common issues that DJs encounter while using Serato DJ, as well as the lack of unity in the scene.

“I’ve got a few different versions of these, but I’d say my favorite is the first Red Bull Thre3style edition.”
“These are so essential; I even DJ with them. I can hear clearer and better and wake up feeling good. Hearing is a major cause of fatigue, and when you’re going to an event every night for a week, these babies enable you to stay focused, make music, and enjoy it the next day.”
“Drinking water is very good for you, but plastic bottles are bad for the environment. I don’t bust this out in the club, but I use it everywhere else to stay hydrated.”
“I don’t usually use CDJs, but when I do, I use HID mode. It’s the easiest and most fun way to perform on CDJs for me. I sometimes find myself in a club with the typical CDJ and DJM900NXS setup, and the hub enables me to take full advantage of that rig. Plus, you can use it to charge your phone, etc.”
“I use this with the Serato Remote quite a bit. I really enjoy having access to cues, loops, samples, and FX regardless of the setup. Also, since the iPad is small and flat, it fits in my bag nicely and doubles as a movie player on flights where there isn’t a TV. I’ve yet to read a book on it, though. [laughs]”
