It’s good in Atlanta, especially for the busiest DJ in town, Danny M. We invited Danny to the studio to test drive the yet unreleased Numark NS6 DJ Controller.

When was the first time you saw a DJ mix live or in person? For some of you these occurrences were witnessed all in the same moment. For others they may have happened at different times at different places. Either way, it probably inspired you to become or want to become a DJ. So you bought some music, DJ equipment, and you practiced day and night to perfection until BOOM! You are a DJ. You even have a DJ name, too. DJ SOMETHING COOL.
