Mon 06.07.2009

We’re back with more beats and bites from master blaster James Zabiela as he loops us something fresh in this latest instalment of the How to DJ series.

Yes, after looking at various different facilities and looping functions on the EFX and DJM-800 mixer, JZ finally gets busy with the CDJ decks…

Here, he demonstrates how to do all sorts of useful things with loops, and even shows how to use a CDJ like a drum machine. Check it out.

Once again, all music is supplied by ALiVE Recordings. And to celebrate the label’s 10th release, ALiVE is offering up a FREE download of Tom Budden’s track ‘Willow’, which James uses in these tutorials. How to DJ is produced by and Ministry of Sound TV. Words: LRC
