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:

Skrillex & Diplo Release Official Music Video To “Where Are U Now”, Deadmau5 Claims It’s “Shit”

Skrillex and Diplo’s collaboration with Justin Bieber has been making waves ever since the early part of 2015. Being one of the top tracks off their debut Jack Ü album, “Where Are Ü Now” has been one of the signature songs of the year so far.

While the music video to “Where Are Ü Now” has been done for a little while, the rights to post it on YouTube and other networks was withheld to provide Samsung exclusive streaming rights to the video. Now however, the official music video has hit the internet in full storm.

The video is actually very well done and features an artistic approach that gave the power back to fans. A few weeks ago we reported that Skrillex and Diplo invited fans to join them in creating the artwork that would be featured on the official music video and based on the final result below, it appears that fans delivered.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a big announcement unless Deadmau5 had something to say about it:

Vice Opens Up About His Career And His Principles Of Success

Vice

Growing up in the Southern California I was very fortunate to be exposed to great radio mixes on my favorite station in the late 90′s, Power 106. For the last 10 years I’ve had a great run working at the competition, 102.7 KIIS FM Los Angeles (IheartMedia) where you can still find me on every Friday night 10 pm to 2 am, I’ve never forgotten about how amazing the DJs on Power 106 were back in the days, always remember listening to Richard “Humpty” Vission @ 5 pm & late nights Powertools, Big Boy in the evening, The Baka Boyz then Deez Krazy Kids (shout out Joey Boy), I was always stuck listening to the mixers, I remember in Jr. High often going into the boys locker room office to listen to DJ Enrie’s powerworkout mixes cause I wanted to hear what records to play, I was always stuck to the radio. No social media, no youtube, no google search, how else can a 13 year old hear new music DJs are playing right?

One of my favorite DJs working on Power back then was the one & only DJ Vice, he was the only radio DJ who inspired me to not become “too radio” & that helped me build my own path, that’s kind of how & why we started doing Club Killers. I wanted to be on flyers as Alex Dreamz from Club Killers, not Alex Dreamz from KIIS FM, not because I don’t love KIIS FM but because of the desire to do more than radio. I was recently forwarded this great interview by one of my close friends, such a great in depth interview from Laptop DJ Podcast, so informative, I had to share. Great advice & stories on knowing your brand, meeting DJ AM, DJ AM helping him break into Las Vegas & so much more. Highly recommend you listen to it below.

How Scott Storch Blew Through A $70 Million Fortune

scott-storch

Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler once admitted to an Australian news program that in his lifetime he wasted $6 million on cocaine. Tyler also explained that his cocaine habit cost him a marriage and severely damaged his relationship with his children. Tyler’s admission is stunning. I can’t imagine a world where $6 million of my money would be wasted in such a horrendously irresponsible way. And while Steven’s admission may have raised some eyebrows, it absolutely pales in comparison to the life story of hip hop producer Scott Storch.

Storch, who produced some of music’s biggest hits between 1999 and 2006, literally makes Steven Tyler look like a complete chump. During his career, he amassed an impressive $70 million fortune churning out hits for artists like Dr. Dre, Christina Aguilera and 50 Cent. Unfortunately, while he rose the ranks of the music world, Storch also amassed one hell of a cocaine and luxury spending habit. Storch would eventually blow through the entire $70 million fortune and declare bankruptcy. If that’s not shocking enough, incredibly he somehow wasted $30 million in less than six months. How in the world did this happen and what is Scott Storch up to now?

Early Life And Rise To Stardom

Scott Spencer Storch was born on December 16, 1973 in Long Island, New York. His mother was a singer and his father was a court reporter. His uncle Jeremy founded a soul rock band called The Vagrants and performed on the side for artists like Eddie Money and Dave Mason. His parents divorced when Scott was 10 and he moved with his mother to Florida. High school was rough for Scott, so in the middle of his first year he moved up to Philadelphia with his dad. He never made past the ninth grade. When he was 18 years old, Scott and his father moved to Cherry Hill, New Jersey where they had family nearby. One of those nearby family members was Scott’s cousin. This cousin introduced Scott to the world of music.

He slowly began producing beats and rising the music ranks. In 1991 Scott was hired to be a keyboard player for the hip hop group The Roots. His rise to producer stardom did not take long.

Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E” was Scott’s first massive commercial hit. He followed up with songs like 50 Cent’s “Candy Shop”, Fat Joe’s “Lean Back”, Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River”, Beyonce’s “Me, Myself and I”. He actually produced hundreds of hit songs during his prime.

At his peak, Storch would sell each track for $100,000. In 2005 alone, Storch produced more than 80 tracks for some of music’s biggest stars and was considered the hottest maestro on the planet. He was even named ASCAP’s Songwriter of the Year for 2006.

Unimaginably Lavish Spending

Not surprisingly, Scott’s lifestyle quickly reflected his new found fame, success and fortune. He dated some of the hottest women on the planet and Paris Hilton (zing!). He also began spending money at a furious pace. Storch owned a car collection that would impress Jay Leno. His fleet was made up of 20 high end luxury cars that cost $250,000 – $700,000 a piece. Storch’s collection included a Bentley, Maybach, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti Veyron and a limited edition McLaren SLR just to name a few. Storch admitted that he would wake up, blow some coke, and then head straight to the car dealership where he would drop hundreds of thousands of dollars, on a whim. He claims he bought at least 10 cars while high on cocaine.

Storch set up shop in a $10.5 million mansion on Miami’s ultra exclusive Palm Island which he bought in 2006, right at the peak of the real estate bubble. The house was a 30,000 square foot, waterfront mansion that had nine bedrooms, an indoor pool, spa, movie theater, fitness center and game room. In front of the mansion, Storch parked his 117 foot, four bedroom $20 million yacht which he named “Tiffany”.

Fast forward a few years and a bank was forced to repossess both the Yacht and the mansion due to lack of payment. Interestingly, in 2010 the house was bought out of foreclosure by Rockstar Energy Drink founder Russell Weiner for $6.75 million. Weiner owned it until October 2012, when he flipped it to rapper Birdman for $14.5 million. Storch also failed to pay as much as $700,000 in property taxes from the mansion to the IRS.

In addition to houses, cars, and yachts, Storch also had a penchant for expensive jewelry. He showered himself and his girlfriends with millions of dollars worth of diamonds, $100 thousand watches, necklaces and more. His left index finger was permanently adorned with a 32 carat canary yellow diamond ring that cost an estimated $7 million.

He also did not exactly fly coach. Whenever Scott traveled, it was by private jet, no matter the distance. While that may not be surprising, keep in mind that even some of the richest celebrities in Hollywood choose to fly commercial when they are going around the world because private jets cost so much money per hour. Storch on the other hand was not shy about spending $250,000 to fly his entourage to the French Riviera for a last minute vacation. Mind you, that’s $250,000 each direction! Perhaps the most jaw dropping aspect of Scott’s story is that he spent a mind boggling $30 million in a six month coke fueled binge. By his own estimation, Scott was spending $250,000 a month on partying alone, at his peak.

Scott’s incredible rise and fall started to unravel in 2007. His hard partying ways began to affect his music. He stopped working for long periods of time and would make A-list musicians wait for hours upon hours at his studio. Storch reportedly made super star Janet Jackson wait 10 hours at the studio while he partied away. As this negative reputation spread, fewer artists lined up to buy Storch’s beats. And as the money slowed down, his spending did not. By 2009, Storch managed to blow through his entire $70 million fortune and was forced to declare bankruptcy. He was arrested on cocaine charges in Vegas in 2012.

In June 2015, Scott filed for bankruptcy again. In the filing he claimed to only have $3,600 in assets which was made up of $100 in cash, $500 worth of clothing and a $3000 watch. He valued his music company at $0. In the filing Scott said that he made $10,000 in 2014. Ouch.

So what’s the lesson here? I mean, there are a hundred. Don’t do drugs. Don’t waste money on unnecessary lavish gifts. Don’t date Paris Hilton. And most important of all, when you’re doing well, put some damn money in the bank for a rainy day!!!
