    Default How many on here DON'T play EDM/electronica

    Am I the only person who plays 60's soul, rhythm & blues, hammond jazz with the help of a DVS system?

    I have a number of set-ups for different types of gigs, I've played the above music for over 25 years. Much of the vinyl is so rare that even if I could afford to replace one of them there's no way i could find a replacement any longer. (we are talking in excess of 1000 per 45)

    So these days i often take a DVS system with me, so i don't have to take the most valuable 45's out with me.

    When people see my set-up they instantly assume that i'll be playing house/dance styles but are surprised when the tunes start .

    I do have two "house" residencies where i play EDM using every tool at my disposal, but i've recently started to use this kit for the soul nights. I was curious to see if anyone else made the crossover.

    What i do like is the fact that I can take a track i love but too slow to get a dancefloor interested, I increase the tempo and keep the pitch correct. Something i could never do just using regular decks. This weekend I created a dancefloor monster by playing a well known ballad at +35% ... perfectly in tune ... so many people were asking about it ...
