This is just disgustingly good! With the camera angle placed overhead you can really study and see how masterful Melo is on the wheels. Highly Recommended.
Last week I had a chance to play an all vinyl set at LA’s Legendary #LowEndTheory - a weekly event that showcases DJs, Artists, Beatmakers, along with other progressive music and forms of creativity. This was the first time I have played a full set on records in easily a decade plus, which was an extremely humbling reminder of what it takes to stay sharp as a DJ. The time it took me to reconnect with the vinyl aesthetic, technicality, and programming a set on wax was a challenging exercise indeed which I realize I need to do more often moving forward throughtout my career... Unlike digital technology, where mistakes can be corrected, or at least somewhat smoothed over with 1 push of a button, vinyl is nowhere near as forgiving and will absolutely put your DJ skills to the test each and every time. After all these years it felt great to go thru my crates and pull records for this mix, and while achieving a flawless set on records is certainly a difficult thing to execute, I appreciate all the variance that comes with the nuances of DJ’ing on vinyl, it truly is an art form 🙏🏼 With that, here is Episode 8️⃣ of the 7 O’Clock Menu Mix - an all 12” vinyl mix.
