Goodbye Serato Scratch Live. Serato DJ With DVS is Here.

serato-dj-with-dvs

Just announced on Sept 4th, the merging of Serato’s DJ softwares has begun – bringing DVS support to Serato DJ with the launch of a new version of the program, 1.5. The announcement comes in tandem with three new pieces of gear: the Rane Sixty-Four mixer, a Pioneer DJM-900 SRT Serato DJ Edition, and the Pioneer DDJ-SP1 controller.

As many industry experts predicted, developing three different programs (Scratch Live, DJ, DJ Intro) would serve only to frustrate and bog down Serato’s development cycle – and that a unification between them would be inevitable. Today we get to see the complete plan:

October 2013: 1.5 Release – Vinyl and CDJ control added to Serato DJ for the new mixers
December 2013: 1.6 Beta – Beta DVS support for Sixty-Eight, Sixty-Two, Sixty-One, SL2, SL3, SL4
February 2014: 1.6 Release – Full DVS support for above mixers + soundcards
Serato is bringing their trademarked NoiseMap DVS technology from Scratch Live into Serato DJ, meaning that you’re not going to need new timecode CDs/vinyl, and that it will continue to be the same reliable engine that DVS users have grown highly accustomed to performing under pressure.

End Of The Line: Of note, the Rane SL1 and Rane 57SL will not be receiving DVS support – apparently the technology in the soundcards in each is too limiting to be supported in Serato DJ.

Watch Serato’s CEO Sam Gribben detail more information about the future of Serato Scratch Live, Serato DJ, and more in the video below:

America’s 10 Biggest Nightclubs Earned Over $550 Million In Revenue Last Year

xs1

Between crazy cover charges, VIP table reservations, and copious amounts of drink purchases, its undeniable how high the cost of treating yourself to a night out partying can be. After embarking on some statistical research around how much avid goers’ wallets have taken a beating last year, the folks at Nightclub.com were able to give us an informed estimate on the total revenue the top ten clubs in the United States earned in 2014. The result? A staggering $550 million in revenue. That’s right, America’s clubbing world is now said to have an estimated worth of over half a billion dollars—a new high for the industry.

Topping the list are two of the biggest clubs to have ever existed, Las Vegas’s XS and Hakkasan, who each passed the $100 million mark in revenue (probably because table reservations can cost up to $10,000 alone at these clubs…yikes). Along with XS and Hakkasan, 5 more of 2014’s top 10 earning clubs have a home in Las Vegas, with only 3 clubs hailing from other parts of the country; New York City and Miami Beach.

Based on these numbers rising in tandem with the popularity of electronic dance music, it’s easy to credit these history-making statistics to the parallel high demand for the DJ services of cash cow electronic acts, like Las Vegas resident DJs Calvin Harris, Avicii, Hardwell, Kaskade, Skrillex, and Diplo. And it’s clear that there are a handful of high rollers that aren’t turned off in the slightest by the excessive price tags that come associated with a night on the town. Check out Nightclub.com’s list of the U.S.’s top 10 earning clubs below along with their staggering revenue price tag estimates.

Here are the top ten clubs in America, with an estimation of their 2014 earnings (numbers reported are the upper end of the range given):

1. XS, Las Vegas, $105 million

2. Hakkasan, Las Vegas, $103 million

3. Marquee Nightclub, Las Vegas, $85 million

4. TAO Las Vegas, Las Vegas, $55 million

5. LIV, Miami Beach, $45 million

6. Surrender Nightclub, Las Vegas, $45 million

7. LAVO New York, New York City, $35 million

8. Story, Miami Beach, $30 million

9. Hyde Bellagio, Las Vegas, $30 million

10. LAVO Las Vegas, Las Vegas, $25 million

Diplo: “I Get A Lot Of Success Cause I’m White”

Major Lazer - Portrait

According to Diplo, he gets a lot of his success because he’s white.

When speaking with Q Magazine, Diplo apparently said, “I get a lot of success because I’m white. You have to be aware that it’s happening.” Using his failed attempts to drum up interest for baile funk acts outside of Brazil as an example, he pointed out, “Nobody wanted to see some black guy come out of the ghettos of Brazil and talk about real gangsta stuff. I learned really quick what marketing for the rest of the world was like.”

Diplo uses his own observations from traveling across Jamaica and South America, citing a lack of musical identity in these countries and a willingness to absorb the US’s Top 40 hits.

“For us there’s never really a feeling of authenticity because there’s no authenticity there. When I was first going there the biggest record in Jamaica was Owl City’s ‘Fireflies’! Miley Cyrus’s ‘Party In The USA’ shut down Jamaica! So I thought, ‘Who the fuck cares what people in England or America think about me going to Jamaica?’”

It’s not as if Diplo is speaking falsely – I’m sure that a lot of his international success is because he’s white, and due to what’s called “white privilege”.

But to Diplo’s own credit, he’s also a very powerful producer and one of the most consistent icons in modern dance music. His appearance in press has kept his name at the very top of everyone’s mind, and his collaborations, duos and singles prove that he has what it takes in the studio and behind the decks.

Don’t sell yourself short, Diplo.
