The NI Audio 2 DJ does Parkour

Here’s an interesting way to show off the portability of a product. Have you ever heard of “Parkour” or the people who do it often called “traceur’s”? Stephane Vigroux make it look easier than it seems. Wikipedia: “Parkour (sometimes also abbreviated to PK) or l’art du dĂ©placement[1] (English: the art of movement) is a discipline that appeared first in France, more similar to a martial art than to a sport, focused on moving from one point to another as smoothly, efficiently and quickly as possible using the abilities of the human body.”.

I used to run all over the mountain near my house growing up. Would that count? In the end it all leads us to the small Native Instruments audio interface for DJ’s the Audio 2 DJ. It seems to fit the bill nicely if your mixing solely off a laptop.

LOL DJs. A website that makes fun of Disc Jockeys.

In my song “Room of Posers” I have a line that says “The DJ spins some records he thinks he is a musician”. I actually think controlling the “wheels of steel” is an art. I have a big respect for many turntable masters. Track selection, mixing, scratching, computer DJ effect controlling and feeding off the crowd all take concentration and skill.

That said, we all need to be made fun of from time to time so. In honor of all the unknown disc jockeys clearing the dancefloor I present to you the LOL DJs website: www.loldjs.com

Have you ever cleared the room?
