(more DJ News posts here)
This is a very visual DJ news. Lots happening with videos to match.
We Are Not Your Friends: If you haven’t seen it, disbelieved it and mocked it yourself yet, Zac Efron “stars” in a movie about a guy fed who is up with fixing houses and decides he’s going to make the big leap to becoming an EDM DJ. (Before watching the trailer, hide all sharp objects just in case you get the urge to kill yourself.) Then watch my favorite parody HERE.
DJ Shot Dead for Not Playing Request: To be honest, I’m surprised there hasn’t been a headline yet of “DJ shoots someone dead for requesting song”. via UKF
Steve Aoki Being Sued for Breaking a Girl’s Neck: Unfortunately it’s for jumping on a raft on top of her head, not from headnod beats. via Billboard
“Grandmaster” Jay Fails at Redemption: Remember the guy who faked that he could DJ to represent the shit DJ product Beamz? Neither do I. After receiving a ton of hate, he decided to set the record straight and show off his skills, which proved to be minimal. Watch the video via Complex.
Skrillex Academy: If you haven’t seen Whiplash, check it out, it’s a good flick. (This isn’t really news, it’s just funny and I enjoy busting on space bar pushers.)

2013 Motown Throwdown Recap & Live Mix
Last month I put out a live recording of my set from the 2013 Motown Throwdown in Morgantown, WV. It’s a fresh mix of hip-hop, rock, trap, twerk, dnb and best of all, it’s clean (no swear words) for the kiddies. Download the mix and check out all the photos of the event in my recap.
DJ Impulse on the Extra Credit Podcast
Have you ever wondered what Coffee Talk would be like with a bunch of DJs? Well, Episode 7 of the Extra Credit Podcast turned into that. DJ Impulse (and DJ Excel) drank all my coffee and ate all my donuts in my kitchen while we talked about Impulse coming up in Baltimore. This episode covers Baltimore club music, horrible DJ names, touring with rappers when you’re a white dude and even gives you some great tips on making a good cup of coffee. Enjoy, subscribe in iTunes and give us a good rating.
Here’s a couple free jams to get the holiday party started…maybe. Click to download.
Every week I come across articles and stories about DJing, DJing technology or just cool music-related ideas. Since I don’t have much faith in the actual sharing effectiveness of most forms of social media, I decided to start a segment on my site called “DJ News”. As I accumulate them, I’ll be posting happenings from around the internet related to DJing and music. Grab a coffee and stay up to date! Edition 1 HERE.
