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.

Calvin Harris has become the first artist ever to get eight Top Ten hits from the same album.
The DJ and producer entered the record books this weekend (April 21) when his track with Ellie Goulding rose from Number 11 to Number Seven. ‘I Need Your Love’ followed seven previous hit singles including to chart-toppers in the shape of ‘We Found Love’ featuring Rihanna and the Florence Welch collaboration ‘Sweet Nothing’. Harris takes the title from Michael Jackson, whose 1987 album ‘Bad’ spawned seven Top Ten efforts. Jackson’s next album ‘Dangerous’ matched the same feat four years later.
Martin Talbot, from the Official Charts Company, said in a statement: “Many artists only achieve a handful of hits in their entire careers. So for any act to secure three or four from one album is an excellent achievement. In turn, eight top 10s from one album is not just impressive, it is absolutely remarkable. And, of course, record breaking. Congratulations to Calvin Harris, the modern day hitmaker.”
Tweeting about the record, Harris wrote: “8 top 10s from my album 18 Months now! So happy!!!” Before adding, tongue in cheek:

DJ Kaku is one of the hottest young talents in Asia, Japanese born, California raised, living in Taipei, this dude brings down the house live! I was very impressed the first time I caught his live set, amazing energy. I was fortunate enough to meet him through my good friend DJ Bento when I was booked out in Taipei, Taiwan at Spark Nightclub where he is a resident along with their newer Hong Kong venue. He is now also a resident at new Hong Kong hot spot, Play Nightclub.
Kevin Ou, who was living in Taipei and I had never met happened to originally be from Anaheim, California, where I grew up. Which was crazy to me, small world. We had a mutual friend that I went to high school with named Sal who connected us, in which I’m extremely grateful for because Kevin & Kaku are pretty much responsible for introducing me to Din Tai Fung, an amazing Taiwanese dumpling house that is only found in Seattle, Los Angeles, and about to open in Orange County. Highly recommend it! Always trust a chubby DJ! One of my favorite restaurants I’ve been to in the whole world. Another fun fact: Kaku also loves the Golden State Warriors. Only die hard Golden State Warriors fan I’ve ever met. Hahaha
Below I have posted somewhat of a throwback vid. When JD Live and I first did our little Club Killers Asia tour in 2012 connecting with DJ Bento, Kaku, & Inquisitive in cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Taipei, & Osaka. Enjoy.
