I NEED TO GET SERATO .:Oct 19 07:.
Last friday I went to support Dojo Soundz at the Red C for their old school throwback sweatsuit night. I took my camera but there were only about 4 peeps (including me) who came thru dressed for the occasion! Despite the lack of participation, it was a good night. Charlie Rock and Jaba killed it as usual. Chuck (I remember him as DJ Sweetchuck) came thru as well to spin a 90's set. I havent seen that guy since maybe '96! He used to lace us with dope promos back in the day when 3 Deep street promotions was still around. They used to help with the http://www.myspace.com/dj_ultraman DJ Ultraman show at UCSD back in the day.
I was able to get into Club Heat next door to check out DJ Blue Ballz and DJ Virus spin for Victory Nightlife. It was weird to walk upstairs to the DJ booth and see a handful of laptops lying around instead of crates! I think its a sign. A while back i was stopped before entering Red C lounge for having a bag which was not recognized by the bouncer as being a bag of RECORDS. I definitely think its a sign when bringing actual vinyl to a club is no longer the norm haha!
http://www.djmarlino.com Dj Marlino and i were talking about how some djs want to "keep it real" by using vinyl only. He and i agreed that lugging crates around for over a decade should make us exempt from keeping it real. If any of you have seen me hauling my records around the Gaslamp with my big a** dollie, i'm sure you'd agee that I am a textbook example of "When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong!" At this point, i could give a flying flub about being a "real dj." Real Dj's use vinyl, huh? Well, I have a "real lower back" that experiences "real pain" therefore i have a real desire to get me a serato.

Where it all began…Now, we didn’t invent the idea of bringing the third turntable, but heads who started scratching on it brought every Turntable Lounge party to the next level! As you can see, we ran grayscale fliers which were later printed on colored Kinko’s cardstock. Straight up raw scratch music EVERY WEEK in a janky venue, coincidentally named the Vortex (a spinning, often turbulent, circular flow). Big ups to that “club and grub” for taking a chance on a bunch of kids wanting to hear ahhhh and fressssh over and over again. All for the love, my friends…
