“Hey, Mr DJ put a record on I wanna dance with my baby!”
For more experienced DJs there is a plethora of FXs to play with:-
3 band equalizer, 3 cue points per deck, 9 pad sampler, echo, reverb with tweaks such as amount, time and mix to tinker around with add to that a patented Gyroscratch technology which allows you to place your device flat on a surface and wiggle it around like a record this can be fun in the right hands otherwise your apostle thumbs will do just fine when it comes to scratching.
On the cooler side of things you can hit the explore tab and you’ll get to see the top tracks by artists chosen for mixing by users globally the list includes all your current favorites such as Airplanes featuring the anemic red head emo chick form Paramore, Lady Gaga, Usher, David Guetta, Eminem, Lil wayne, Slipknot etc.. the most popular being Black eyed Peas with their booty shaking tracks. You’ll also find a sub-section of top mixes a list comprising of the dream mashups by users something that we’ve seen before only in DJ Hero for consoles or the non-gaming singing in the shower bunch have on Glee. These tracks can instantly be previewed and bought off the the iTunes store in-app.
Of The more interesting ones i found were:-
Thriller (MJ) Vs I’m Bad (LL Cool J)
Barbara Streisand (duck sauce) Vs Like a rolling stone (Bob Dylan)
Corduroy (pearl Jam) Vs The great beyond (R.E.M.)
If you are really picky about your music and have been gifted with the voice of an angel then take to recording your own tracks using the voice recorder, once you have a winner on your hands save your mixes and spread the love.
One thing is certain DJs are here to stay and currently rule the charts with billions of fans thronging at their blaring tunes like mice do unto The pied Piper.
I personally think they’ve doomed or scarred the linguistic beauty of songwriting and music that creates lasting memories, how does one win over the heart of a girl by playing Tiesto standing underneath her window?!, you’ll be slapped with a restraining order faster then you can say “you complete me….”. You do it the Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) way in say anything with his boombox held high above his head playing In your eyes By Peter Gabriel.
