DJ Shu, The 2013 Beats By Dre DJ Battle Champ at Rock and Soul

Today, the legendary NYC DJ store, Rock and Soul, teamed up with Beats by Dre and had a DJ battle. The rules were Vinyl only and each DJ had 2 minutes to rock the house. It was mainly guys scratching and juggling  There were a few body tricks and lots of "fresh"s and "ahhh"s. But the overall winner of the competition was NYCelectro.com's own DJ Shu! He won the new Beats By Dre - Mixr, created by David Guetta. To top it off, once the battle was finished, Tony Touch came out and did a special performance. Click through for more pics! Also, check back as we may be adding video to the post, provided by the patrons and Rock and Soul.

‘Dropping On The 4′ is the new ‘Dropping On The 1′. (with some music theory)

This is no new concept to most DJs with many/a few years under their belt, but its very useful. Most DJs mix on the 1 (of the beat) and there is nothing wrong with. But, for those of you that have the need for something different, then this article is for you. Click through for examples, an explanation on "dropping on the 4", and some pretty sweet (basic) music theory.

DJ Shiftee, A Routine Breakdown. and DMC’s Golden Years videos

Its pretty rare to get an explanation on what someone is doing on a battle/juggle routine, especially for free. I have learned many technics from many different DJs on some basic/advanced juggling concepts, but nothing really like this. Watch the video, its a great breakdown, and if you apply yourself, you should be able to copy it pretty quickly. Also, click through for DJ Shiftee's tribute to the DMC's "The Golden Years" video.
