[DJ TIP] My streaming set-up for Twitch and Mixcloud sets! 

I've been streaming my DJ sets for almost 3 years now.  In this video I share my advice on how to set up an advanced streaming set-up and even a basic setup so you can get streaming ASAP!

Some of the gear in the video!

  • Universal Audio Apollo x6 (audio interface)
  • GoPro Heroes 7 & 9 
  • Blackmagic ATEM Mini camera switcher (game changer!)
  • LumeCube LED GO Light
  • Monfrotto Tripod (my favorite for traveling and pop-up streaming mixes)

Check out the video!  Thank you :D


Why I switched from BPM Supreme to ZIP DJ for my DJ music service [and would recommend other DJ's should too] ZIP DJ Initial Review 

I had a BPM Supreme DJ music subscription from 2015 through the beginning of 2023 and here's why I switched:

  • I could NOT find most of the music that I enjoyed from DI.FM Radio
  • No Latin music unless subscribing to the additional service (wtf)
  • The new UI that came out in 2022 is not very user friendly

I saw an ad on Facebook (got me! lol) for ZIP DJ service and noticed a DJ colleague had provided a review mentioning how awesome their service is.. so I got interested.

And then I noticed how they were tailored to the electronic music DJ (you know me, house music lover!), so I was definitely interested.

When I'm wanting to find new music for my Laced Radio podcast, I'll buy the tracks on Beatport and/or get them from a DJ subscription service (previously used BPM Supreme).

I cancelled my BPM Supreme and dove in to ZIP DJ! (Got accepted within a day :D)

So far, I am very impressed.  I searched from some of my followed artists on DI.FM and was able to find them!  It's also very cool that I can see the Artist, Track, AND record label.

In summary:  I would absolutely recommend ZIP DJ subscription service to my fellow DJ's, ESPECIALLY if you're in to electronic music (and already have your 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s hits in your library.

Looking forward to showcasing some of my favorite tracks in the next Laced Radio podcast episode!  Let's GO!

Denon DJ does it again? Engine 3.0 update is pretty amazing [REVIEW & Update walk-though] 

I entered the Denon DJ ecosystem back in 2020 and it's been a great journey as a DJ since then.

Denon DJ comes through with another awesome software update, providing DJ's with more tools to enhance our mixes and sets. I've said it before and will repeat myself here… 

Denon DJ is on their way to being a top brand for DJs.  Lookout Pioneer DJ!  

This video will cover an overview of the updates and I will install the Engine DJ 3.0 (desktop) and Engine OS 3.0 on my Prime GO and Prime 4 standalone DJ systems

Denon DJ never ceases to disappoint with their software updates providing us DJ's tools like Samplers, wifi (or hardwire) connection to access Engine DJ (desktop), and some other key features. Do you think Denon DJ hooked us up with this update?  Check out the video and let me know your thoughts in the comments on YouTube.




PSA: DJ's and showering 

I don't know what it is but the majority of the time that I step in to a DJ booth, it smells like an ashtray, swamp ass, body odor, and mustyness.  It's like DJ's wanna be this 'organic' artist.  Now, I'm not saying ALL DJ's are like this.  I can't speak for anyone else, but I definitely take the time to shower before all of my gigs.  I have some DJ friends who also take care of themselves. 

BUT man... I just never know what to expect some times during DJ jam sessions at dive bars.  Anyway, I wanted to share something AKA some awesome soap with my fellow DJs in hopes it helps them out.

There's a company called Tactical Soap that sells pheromone infused soap.  The pheromones are a bonus of this soap, in my opinion.  I like that the soap makes me feel clean, doesn't have an over powerful scent, and one bar lasts quite a while.

I really hope that my fellow DJs find this information helpful.  The ONLY funk that should exist in the booth are the beats!
