The Game ft. Lil Wayne – Red Nation

by djsharpe on March 16, 2011

New track from The Game ft. Lil Wayne called “Red Nation“. Usually I don’t post stuff like this but found the Kernkraft “Zombie Nation” kind of interesting especially after that Akon song featuring Ludacris that samples the Blade techno song that came out not to long ago. I’m wondering if things are starting to head this way a bit?

What do you think?

A Remixer’s Manifesto

by djsharpe on March 4, 2011

1. Culture Always Builds On The Past.

2. The Past Always Tries To Control The Future.

3. Our Future Is Becoming Less Free.

4. To Build Free Societies You Must Limit The Control Of The Past.

* I highly recommend you see the independent film “A Remixer’s Manifesto“. Great film!

You heard that right! Looks like I switched just in time since that was one of the features I enjoyed on the Blackberry. From what I’ve heard, RIM has not yet finalized details surrounding timing or pricing, but we have heard that the company might make the software free to all users.

So in closing we have heard that Android is definitely a go. But again, not sure on timing, though we’re confident that it will launch some time this year. RIM chose Android first because of the fact that it could develop and integrate something like this much easier with an open platform, but the plan is to build and deploy an iOS version at some point as well.

So, my personal congrats to RIM for making what I feel could be a very smart business move and keep them around in the competitive smart phone market. 

Thanks to BGR for the info.

All your Facebook are belong to us or Mark?

by djsharpe on March 1, 2011

 

So, if you haven’t heard yet Facebook has announced in a letter to Congress that they’ll be going forward with plans to give third parties access to your info, specifically, your phone numbers and home addresses. However, Facebook continues to say that they’ll let users decide what personal info is available to the public via — you guessed it — privacy settings.

They have not yet announced how or when this will happen but via Yahoo:

“We have not yet decided when or in what manner we will redeploy the permission for mobile numbers and addresses,” the letter states. “We are evaluating whether and how we can increase the visibility of applications’ request for permission to access user contact information. We are also considering whether additional user education would be helpful.”

This is a warning…. Be prepared again! And as always keep an eye on your privacy settings.

This is a quick run down of some Blackberry clients to try while Ubertwitter is suspended….

And a special thanks to Rimarkable for the info:

  1. Twitter for BlackBerry — This is the official BlackBerry Twitter client and I recommend installing it no matter what third party Twitter client you use.  It can definitely get you by in times like these.
  2. SocialScope — I believe that SocialScope is in infinite closed beta, but, if you can get an invite, you may never even go back to UberTwitter.
  3. Seesmic for BlackBerry — We’ve only talked about Seesmic for BlackBerry a few times, but, Mac users seem to swear by it.
  4. HootSuite for BlackBerry — HootSuite is kind of cool because, like SocialScope, it connects to your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
  5. TweetGenius — Haven’t really heard anything bad about TweetGenius other than it cost $8.
  6. TwiXtreme –  We talked about TwiXtreme when it first came out, but, not since.  Maybe we should go back and check it out again.
  7. OpeanBeak — I honestly haven’t messed around with OpeanBeak since they changed the name from TwitterBerry.

I personally I’ve not tried all these YET, but I will;) Hope the suggestions help you at this time of need?

**UPDATE **

You can find the new Ubertwitter here with all the features you’ve come to expect: http://www.uber-social.com/

Rane SL 4 powered by Serato Scratch Live at Namm?

by djsharpe on January 12, 2011

Rane Corporation and Serato Audio Research Launch the Rane SL 4

Rane Corporation and Serato Audio Research Launch the Rane SL 4

Mukilteo, WA, USA – January 13, 2011 – Rane and Serato are pleased to present the Rane SL 4, a revolutionary new five-channel DJ interface, designed for the discerning DJ.

The Rane SL 4 is the first standalone DJ interface with two high-speed USB 2.0 ports, for seamless DJ changeover and back-to-back performances, as featured in the award winning Rane Sixty-Eight mixer.

“The performance and flexibility of the new SL 4 once again raises the bar for DJ interfaces. We’re excited about the creative possibilities now available with this new device” says Dean Standing, Rane Sales Director.

“Serato Scratch Live is used by many of the world’s top DJs, playing on incredible sound systems. These DJs demand the best of the best from their equipment. Fortunately, Rane’s engineers are amongst the finest in the world, and when they were asked to design the best possible interface, they certainly rose to the challenge” explains Sam Gribben, Serato General Manager.

DJs now have the freedom to perform with the mixer of their choice with four switchable phono/line inputs allowing for simultaneous control of up to four decks with either one or two computers, and a combination of turntable or CD control. An auxiliary input and output add the flexibility to record sets and create more output options for the SP-6 Sample Player and The Bridge.

Superior sound is delivered by a 96 kHz sample rate and high quality 24-bit digital audio processing, plus built-in galvanic isolation eliminates computer noise and interference, for the purest audio signal available in a digital DJ system.

Teamed with low-latency ASIO and Core Audio drivers, the Rane SL 4 can also be used as a high-grade studio production tool with multiple third party software applications.
All of this is in one powerful package, masterfully crafted by Rane.

The Rane SL 4 powered by Serato Scratch Live is the ultimate high-end solution for professional DJs. Ships April, 2011. US MAP $899.00
Features:
• Supports four turntables or CD decks switchable in any combination.
• Two high-speed USB 2.0 ports for two DJs for uninterrupted performances.
• Aux Input for session recording or LiveFeed.
• Aux Output assignable to the SP-6 Sample Player and The Bridge.
• Four software-switchable analog Thru connections for regular vinyl or CD.
• 48 kHz and 96 kHz sample rate switch on the SL 4 rear.
• 10-in 10-out USB sound card with any software supporting ASIO or Core Audio.
• Bus power from either USB port or the included external power supply.

Yesterday Serato and Pioneer introduced the DDJ-S1, a new DJ controller for Serato ITCH software. It combines Pioneer’s renowned DJ hardware design with world leading software development by Serato, the DDJ-S1 offers innovation and pure controllerism in one inspired package.

It’s no secret that controllers are gaining popularity among DJs but how will it affect the art of turntablism in the future?
