DJ Equipment Reviews: Numark DJ2Go

http://www.numark.com/images/sized/images/product_large/dj2go_angle_media_lrg_01-624x391.jpg

When I was a dj, portability was one of my biggest considerations in buying equipment. That's why the Numark DJ2Go would be something I'd consider buying. Fits in a backpack, and seems to have all the basics you need to play a party or a weekly bar gig. Here are some excerpts from a couple online reviews (click the link to read the whole thing):

'If you're a wannabe DJ who wants the cheapest, most portable, simplest DJ controller set-up on the market, then get this and a splitter cable and prepare to have a lot of fun.'
- digital dj tips

'If you are new to DJing we recommend picking one up, it won't break the bank, will stand up to a bit of punishment and offers all the basics you'll need to get going.'
- HotDJGear.com

On a side note, just because a review says it's good for beginners doesn't mean experienced dj's can't use it either. Once I moved away from vinyl, I always went for the simplest, smallest equipment I could find.

As of the date of this blog post, it looks like this is going for about $40-50 online. Click the link below to learn more:

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

DJ mix/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
