[Yearmix] DJ Sandstorm Yearmix 2016 LIVE

[20-12-2016] Last year I wrote 'the year is not complete without a DJ Sandstorm Yearmix'. For 16 years in December, I produced a Yearmix of one hour, with all the big r&b, pop and dance hits of the year behind us. But this year I will do it completely different.  The DJ Sandstorm Yearmix 2016 will be a LIVE DJ MIX.

For the first time creating this mix, I am not looking at my Pro Tools screen or my Akai samplers (like in the first years). This year, the brandnew ROLAND DJ 808 controller with Serato is my work space.


I already use Serato DJ software for many years now, when I do live gigs. And in the studio I work with many Roland synths and groovemachines. So when Roland and Serato announced the DJ 808 controller on 9-09 day (9 September), I was very interested to see what this could do for my creativity. And it is a blast!

Creating a live DJ mix with this controller is fun! Doing live mashups, using the hotcues, sampler, onboard effects like reverb, filters and delay, and of course the onboard TR-S drummachine with all the classic Roland drumsounds!

Watch this space in the coming weeks for more info on the DJ Sandstorm Yearmix 2016 Live. And if you would like to book it for your live event, get in touch here!

hoi Sander, kijk al jaren uit naar je jaarmixen. Fan van het eerste uur. Blijf er steeds van genieten. Dit jaar laat je me wel op de honger zitten. Geen DJ Sandstorm jaarmix, maar wel en Yearmix 2016 LIVE. Enig kans wanneer we die te horen krijgen of hoe te beleven?  Het oor wilt het graag beleven hoe de Yearmix 2016 Live klinkt.
Met vriendelijke groeten Joop
