Toca Tuesdays with Tony Touch: DJ June’s Birthday

Every Tuesday night Tony Touch throws a great party Hip-hop in the East Village/Lower East Side called Toca Tuesdays. He brings in a scheduled special guest along with his resident DJ, Dj June. Last night was DJ June's Birthday celebration. The schedule was DJ June playing a longer than normal set, then Tony Touch. But that isnt what exactly happened. She DJ's excellently then Tony Touch brought in DJ Finesse for starters. Then after a great happy birthday set of songs from Finesse, there was another special guest... Just Blaze! It was late, people were vibing, and so was Just Blaze and Tony Touch. They did a series of juggles together. Watching it, it was like Just Blaze saw a song on Tony's computer and was like "Yeah this is the one" and Tony was doing the same! You gotta check out the video.

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.

Afrika Bambaataa uses Serato? Yep!

Looks like one of history's biggest digger (for records), Afrika Bambaataa, now uses Serato. I don't really blame him, after all, records are heavy. It was Sutra's 6th year anniversary and the lineup was DJ June, Tony Touch, and Afrika Bambaattaa. It was some seriously good music. But did Bambaataa bring it as hard and are his crates as deep as expected? Also, what does it mean for DJing considering Bambaataa is no longer using records? Click through to read more and for more pictures of the event:
