Crimea X - Prospective

Nice balearic, cosmic disco LP I discovered today. (Thanks to the Mushroom Project January DJ chart on juno)

Crimea X are two italian dj producers: DJ Rocca (Ajello, Super Sonic Lovers, Maffia Sound System) and Jukka Reverberi from italian cult indie band Giardini di Mirò. They were brought together by the common passion for cosmic imaginary soundscapes, where Kraut rock fuses with the predilection for Marxist thought and political stories of last century.The end product is a tantalising myriad of musical styles and tongue in cheek ethos, satirising the socio-political climate of our modern era… (text taken from Hell Yeah Recordings)

Guerrilla Stoemp geek action: Numark NS6 - 4 channel digital controller & mixer

2011 marks the true beginning of the 4 channel midi controller battle.
Pioneer is going to release 2 different models (DDJ-T1 & the DDJ-S1) which didn't really convinced me. But it's too early to judge.
Native instruments' Traktor Kontrol S4 system seems to be highly succesful and denon launched its Dn-MC6000.

Now it's Numark's turn to unveil their new 4 channel midi controller:
Numark NS6
I find this one really promising, it will work with itch (of course) but apparently also with other djing softwares. Oh yes, It is also a standalone 4-channel DJ mixer that can be used without the computer.

Official Numark Communication:

Introducing the NS6 DJ controller for Serato ITCH.

NS6 is a 4-channel Digital DJ controller with complete built-in mixer and four decks of software control. NS6 is the first truly pro-grade DJ controller and standalone 4-channel mixer with effects. Simply put, there has never been this much versatility and control available for professional DJs. NS6's easy-to-use dual-platter system has been designed in collaboration with Serato to deliver powerful breakthrough performance to DJs of all kinds.

NS6 borrows from the popular designs of Numark's award-winning NS7FX and V7 controllers and delivers substantial new features including the most responsive, high-resolution touch-activated platters ever produced in a DJ product. The wheels on NS6 deliver 3600 ticks of resolution per rotation; when combined with NS6’s automatically adjusted platter sensitivity the result is ultra-precise, high definition turntable control.

In addition to high quality control functionality, NS6 contains a fully functional four-channel digital mixer that can be used with or without the computer, making NS6 perhaps the most versatile DJ controller and mixer combination in the world.

Numark introduced Strip Search virtual needle drop technology to the DJ world with NS7. NS6 takes this one step further by adding position indicators that allow you to always know track position, giving one less reason to need to look at the screen. Bi-Color LEDs also surround each wheel, providing both an indication of the Deck in control and also a Deck’s playback status. Effects can be instantly accessed by channel.

The simple and intuitive design of NS6 includes favorites like mouseless Serato library navigation, Key Lock, complete Pitch Control, manual and instant Looping and Hot Cues. New features have been added including direct access to beat grid controls and beat skip, which allows you to juggle the track inline with the beat so that it never loses sync.

NS6 includes a professional 24-bit audio interface to guarantee pristine audio quality from the computer. A full array of inputs and outputs are present, including XLR outputs, Headphone out, two mic inputs, two phono inputs, four line-level inputs, and USB to connect the system to a Mac or PC.

NS6 comes with Serato’s ITCH DJ software and tightly integrates with ITCH thanks to close collaboration between Serato and Numark. NS6 also employs the proven, cutting-edge control technology invented by Numark in NS7, in which turntable and control information are communicated between the hardware and software at more than ten times standard MIDI resolution. This massive data stream creates the rock-solid, latency-free control for which DJs worldwide have hailed NS7. Because NS6’s communication is based upon MIDI, you can use it with a variety of MIDI software.

Sam Gribben, General Manager at Serato says, “The Serato and Numark partnership has already produced the very successful NS7, NSFX and V7. We’re proud to be releasing the NS6, a controller which provides a DJing experience unlike any other. 4 decks, FX and amazing sound - it’s going to be massive”. We couldn't agree more.

David Lynch - Good day today

I have a hard time believing it's David Lynch. It's too accessible, too pop, in a way it's too normal by Lynch standards or let's say that I was expecting a more adventurous musical experience, especially considering his past sonic adventures (Blue Bob)

Anyways here it is.

Kurt Maloo - Afterglow (Frisvold & Lindbæk Mix)

I don't know Kurt Maloo (I'll look that up later), nor do I know Frisvold & Lindbæk who did this mix, but what I do know is this: Afterglow is a HOT balearic track!!!!!!!

It's released on fascinating rhythms.
