Serato Celebrates 20th Anniversary With Special Adidas Sneakers

Renowned DJ software company Serato is celebrating its 20th anniversary by creating a special Adidas Forum colorway co-designed by DJ Clark Kent and Serato’s OP Miller.

“Serato’s 20-year life has been a blur of club bangers, chill radio waves, and unbound creative genius from everyone who took to the decks with us. And all that’s just the beginning. This collab is a chance to thank the people who have made this life so far the sickest blessing any community could ask for” said Scotty Hoogerbrug, Chief Marketing Officer for Serato.

“DJs run the party… Let the DJ feel good about their look. Inspire them to play as well as they look.” states DJ Clark Kent.

These exclusive sneakers feature premium black leather that is designed to handle the dirt and stains of club life. They also showcase Serato’s 20-year progression by featuring the original Scratch Live logo and its current DJ Pro logo on the ankle collars, and vinyl pressing details on the white midsole and outsole. There’s an exclusive Serato x Adidas control vinyl that comes with the sneaker release as well.

This Serato x Adidas Forum collaboration is a one-off, extremely limited run that will remain exclusive to the friends and family of the company and won’t be released to the public for now.

Mojaxx Reviews Pioneer DJ’s DDJ-REV1 and DDJ-REV7

Mojaxx reviews Pioneer DJ’s new controllers, the DDJ-REV1 and DDJ-REV7 on the first episode of his new Beatsource Tech series. The DDJ-REV1 is an entry-level, two-channel controller for Serato DJ Lite, and the DDJ-REV7 is a two-channel controller for Serato DJ Pro with motorized platters that provides the mixer and turntable experience in one unit.

Both are part of the new DDJ-REV series that takes inspiration for its layout from a professional DJM-S mixer plus turntable setup and adds innovative features for open format DJs.

“The ‘REV’ series of controllers are a new and exciting chapter for Serato and Pioneer DJ,” says Serato Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren. “Following up on the DDJ-SB3 was never going to be easy, with a brand new layout and innovative features we’re confident beginners are going to love learning on DDJ-REV1. For our professional DJs, the DDJ-REV7 is one of the most powerful controllers we’ve ever worked on and it’s exciting to have motorized jog wheels make their debut on a Pioneer DJ controller.”

Pioneer DJ‘s latest flagship multi-player is now an official Serato accessory via the newest upgrade to Serato DJ Pro, Serato DJ Pro’s 2.5.7. Building on the legacy of the CDJ-2000NXS2, the CDJ-3000 features several powerful improvements, including an enhanced MPU, redesigned hardware components, and a 9-inch, high-resolution touch screen. However, complete control of Serato DJ Pro with the CDJ-3000 requires using HID mode, including Serato’s colored waveforms on the display.

“As clubs and festivals open worldwide, support for the CDJ-3000 has been a highly requested feature for Serato DJs.” says Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren. “We’re pleased to bring this support in Serato DJ Pro 2.5.7, with the reliability and quality our professional DJs expect.”
