The New DJ Revolution: mp3j\'s, (and iPods)

updated 09:55 am EST, Mon November 10, 2003

mp3j\'s using iPods

methodshop.com writes about who use iPods: "Somewhere in East London the turntables are motionless. The only thing spinning is a chorus of iPod hard drives, or the ceiling (if you're friends with the bartender). The club's name is Dreambagsjaguarshoes and the event is called noWax. The concept for noWax is simple: MP3s, not wax. iPods, not decks. On noWax nights, mp3j's bring their iPods and wait for the automated projector above the DJ booth to flash their number. They then plug-in and mix three songs back-to-back against another mp3j. noWax is a public competition very similar to 'Rap Battles', a la Eminem's movie 8 Mile."

    Oh joy

    No pitch control. I guess they just play music that will beat match. Kinda removes a lot of the spontaneity.

    I want an iPod to Pioneer CDJ interface. that would take things to another level.

    Hey, it takes one to know one. We losers can spot them a mile away. Sort of like some people and their g**-dar.

    Focus, Pinky, Focus.

    They're using iPods, gang. That's all that matters.

    And I for one DIG the MP3j thing. Although I tried scratching with my iPod and it got all... well, scratched.
