DJWORX in the printed world

When you finally gather the funds to plop down on a brand spankin’ new Pioneer CDJ-2000, you’d expect that it at least comes with a shiny new box – and it does.  It will also come with a mini booklet of cryptic instructions that you may spend hours trying to decipher.  But even if you spend a day and read through every part of the manual, it won’t teach you how to DJ; nor will it teach you how to be a DJ.  There are just some things that cannot be taught in a book.  Odds are, you’ll spend countless hours watching Youtube videos of other DJs in an attempt to learn the art.

Fortunately, there are some good tutorials out there.  Some of them are free; produced by DJs as help guide, and some can actually be purchased.  Qbet’s “How To Scratch” is actually not a bad primer for scratch DJs who want to learn some fundamentals.  DJworx has done their part for the community by offering advice and knowledge on DJ gear – now, they have decided to go with a paperback copy.  Yes, their “how to DJ” articles will soon be available to buy and touch with your bare hands.
