Jessy Lanza is a electronic music producer and performer from Hamilton, Ontario. Her debut record Pull My Hair Back was a top 10 finalist for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize. Jessy and I chilled out in her van for a bit and ate candy. I asked her about her time as a piano teacher, her […]

Jeff Sontag – Don’t Say You Love Me (Rubee Rayne Cover)

R&B/neo-soul vocalist Jeff Sontag’s latest, a cover of Rubee Rayne’s “Don’t Say You Love Me” sounds a bit like MO and Diplo’s collaboration on “XXX 88.” Well, at least the warbling synths in the background do. So upon clicking play and hearing that familiar sound, I knew that I needed to listen to more. The […]

Modulares Interface B.A.: Insulated Touch Control for iOS

One of the first articles I wrote on DJTT was the Kickstarter called the Tuna Knobs. The knobs were meant to add a tactile element that was lost with touch based apps. A common concern for the Tuna Knobs that we saw in the comments was that they seemed to be a little simple for the purpose […]

DJing With One Deck and Instant Doubles

One of the many advantages of using a DVS system for DJing, which is often overlooked, is the ability to play from just one vinyl deck or CDJ, in case of equipment failure. In this article we discuss the technique for doing so, and how to achieve it using both Serato DJ, and Traktor.

We haven’t written enough about Antonioni. Probably because he said this: “I am personally very reluctant to use music in my films, for the simple reason that I prefer to work in a dry manner, to say things with the least means possible,” At least until he decided to work with Herbie Hancock and then […]

We begin this retrospective with The Keep, Mann’s second […]
