Two-time DMC World Champ DJ Shiftee is one talented motherfucker. Apart from having a slew of DJ awards under his belt and being a globetrotting producer and purveyor of bass music, he’s also a Harvard Math Graduate, and an instructor at NYU as well as Dubspot NYC. Thankfully, he’s taken some time out of his busy schedule to whip up a turntable routine using Joker’s “Slaughter House”. Combining Native Instruments‘ Traktor and Maschine, Shiftee takes a page from MPC era beat smithing and fuses it with some tasteful turntablism. Not to mention, he’s sure to keep you laughing throughout the entire video.
If you get a chance to see DJ Shiftee live, make sure to hop on it – he’s very fun to watch as a master of keeping you dancing and interested throughout his entire set.
DJs: make sure to keep an eye on the Dubspot Blog where you can find lots more tutorials as well as Shiftee’s custom Maschine mapping templates.
