SLAM'S STUDIO ESSENTIALS

01. Modular Eurorack
“This is the most recent addition to our studio set-up, and also the centrepiece of our new live sets. It's a fantastic sonic monster but very temperamental, as easy to lose a great sound as it is to find one. We have already spied additional units, and the second rack has already started.”

TEN TRACKS THAT INSPIRED DANNY DAZE

Hailing from Miami, Danny Daze was schooled on Miami bass before discovering Italo disco and Detroit techno. He's now one of the most diverse jocks on the international house/techno circuit, as evidenced by his wide-ranging sets and irregular, chilled-out, experimental 'Sunday Morning' mix series.

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT AUDEZE'S NEW EL8 HEADPHONES

Audeze are making huge waves in production circles. Their LCD X headphones have been adopted by producers and DJs, and are regularly getting props in studio-related interviews as well as photo shoots.

The secret is well and truly out of the bag and the Audeze name is being spoken about openly in producer communities, however all this hi-end pro studio headphone wizardry comes at a price.

MBONGWANA STAR: STARS IN THE MAKING

We get a lot of music sent to DJ Mag Towers. Like, tons. We like quite a lot of it, and try to cover it in all manner of ways — it's mostly electronic stuff, of course. Sometimes, though, something comes along that is as funky and dynamic as the best electronic dance music — but isn't made with any machines whatsoever (hardly). The new album by Mbongwana Star is one such missive.

VIDEO: CHECK OUT ALLEN & HEATH'S XONE 43 MIXER

Allen & Heath recently released the Xone:43 mixer, but just to shake things up a little they have now announced its twin brother — the Xone:43C. The C version of the Xone:43 is still a four-channel DJ mixer, however this one has direct plug-and-play integration with Serato DJ. An additional one-off purchase of the Serato DJ Club Kit gives full DVS control, making for a very tasty Serato-certified mixer with the trusty Allen & Heath quality.

Q&A: PATRICE SCOTT

One man ready to tackle a dance music album is Patrice Scott. While many producers prefer to take refuge within the safer, more compact realm of the EP, the Detroit producer relishes the challenge on 'Euphonium, The Album'. Obviously, he's picked his moment.
