This Weekend 27-28th Of September!



Another Party Night At LIPZ!

This Saturday i was DJing at Lipz in Trollhättan. As always it was a blast! The last Saturday before payday in september is one of the worst weekends in the year. But the dancefloors in Lipz was packed! Thank you all at Lipz for a great evening!!!! See you in November again!




Saved By Numark!

Last friday I went up to Stadt in Lidköping to DJ in the nightclub of the hotel. Its not a big DJ-booth so my plan was to use two turntables and a mixer and 2 Traktor Kontrol X1, and only play a few vinyls. But my Audio Interface was acting really strange. So I had to go to my car and use my backup-players. A pair of Numark NDX900. So last friday i used CDs and USB, and it was long ago i used that. But the evening went by fine. Here are som pics:


Thank you all guests and staff at Harrys Stadt Lidköping! See You Soon Again!

Skratch Bastid.

Here is a cool clip of DJ Skratch Bastid doing his Pink Floyd rutine:
Paul Murphy (born September 2, 1982), known primarily by his stage name Skratch Bastid, is a Canadian hip hop DJ and Juno nominated record producer. His rise to prominence began with his 2003 Scribble Jam win, and his world class status was solidified with subsequent victories in 2004 and 2007. He released his debut album, Taking Care of Business on his own label First Things First Records in 2005,and was the first-ever Canadian DJ to be nominated for the Juno Award for Producer of the Year in 2008, for his work on Buck 65's album Situation

A Nice History Lesson About Hous Music.

For all you kids out there... This is the beginning of house!  Enjoy!

Whats Next?

Since the late 80s I have always used Technics 1200/1210 as my turntables. Two years ago this legendary turntable was no longer produced. So whats next? If I cant get my hands on a Technics 1210 or 1200 any more I might start to use these babies. :) 


The TTXUSB stands alone among professional turntables because it was exclusively designed for the modern DJ, with a silicon rubber base that absorbs vibration and dampens low end feedback, and an interchangeable tone arm system that adapts to any DJ style. The TTXUSB, like its predecesor, features user-variable torque. The TTXUSB also delivers versatility and control thanks to an illuminated output bay, a built-in BPM counter, and interchangeable S-shaped or straight tonearms. Best of all, the TTXUSB's built-in USB connector simplifies connection to a computer for fast, professional grade vinyl-to-digital transfer.
As an added benefit, vinyl-to-digital conversion takes just a few mouse clicks thanks to the bundled EZ Vinyl Converter software; a new program available exclusively to Numark that quickly converts vinyl tracks directly to iTunes.
Additional features include digital outputs for direct sampling, Key Lock and +/-50% pitch control for unprecedented mixing options. The TTXUSB remains ahead of the game and delivers a new standard in turntables by expanding the possibilities of vinyl.
