For the past four months, former two-time DMC World Champion Shiftee has been releasing installments of his audio and visual series, & Beyond. The project, which is a collection of three EPs and nine performance videos, has finally been finished.
The New York native has now dropped the final video, which is a compilation of all nine performances.
“This is my take on a Beyonce-type visual album,” Shiftee tells us. “Since I’m a DJ nerd and not a pop goddess, the videos are all routines instead of music videos.”
Shiftee started the series in May to coincide with the fifth anniversary of his label, Hot Mom USA. His goal was also to use it as a creative way to get his music heard.
“The project shows where my head is at in terms of production styles (hip-hop meets weird electronic club music) and turntablism (using the gear primarily as a means to showcase my music),” Shiftee adds.

Two-time DMC World Champion Shiftee recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of his label, Hot Mom USA. In honor of the milestone, the New York native is releasing an audio and visual series titled & Beyond. The project contains three EPs and 10 performance videos.
Shiftee has already released the first installment, Boom Bap & Beyond, along with two accompanying videos. According to its description on SoundCloud, the EP explores “the boundaries of rap and bass [music].”
Enferno and Shiftee, also known as E.A.S.Y., have shared a video of themselves performing their future bass single, “Like That.” The three-minute visual showcases the duo’s controllerism and turntablism skills. Watch it above and stream the track on SoundCloud.

Though best known in the gaming world, PC maker Razer has been working to expand their brand in the music industry over the past year. So far, the company has released production tutorials featuring deadmau5, Metro Boomin, Dyro, and Project 46.
Now, Razer has expanded into turntablism with a set of videos featuring DJ Shiftee. The first is an impressive live performance of his track “Dope Girls,” while the second breaks down how the routine was put together.
