    Interview: Laidback Luke on mastering the art of DJing

From the packed, sweaty underground Techno scene from years past to the monstrous pop-culture and bass-infused modern era, the genre has grown exponentially. The underground and early days of the “EDM Transformation” saw a tightly knit group of fans divulged in the masterpiece LIVE production and music talent of sets changing pace at every beat, to a repetitive and almost predictable Live set scene currently taking over the world.

    Streaming Service Pulselocker Shuts Down 

    Pulselocker, the DJ-focused music streaming service, just announced that it is ceasing operations. In an email sent out to users, Pulselocker cited “a combination of market circumstances and financial constraints” as the reasons for shutting down.

Virtual DJ’s online music service is the other, which is split among three plans from different providers: Music (provided by iDJ Pool), Karaoke (DigiTrax and Karaoke Cloud), and Video (VJPro).

    Djs From Mars - The History Of Electronic Dance Music 

    "10 years ago i was doing these mashup mixes, it combined mixing great music and adding flavour with on-the-fly pella juggling. It's said that it has become more a commercial line these days with artists like DJ Earworm, i disagree. Nothing against these talented artists but they are studio compiling vocals over 'usually' one (or few) instrumental, that's arrangement. It's not the same as mixing a live dub set with an acapella disc on your third player." - 3initial
