Dope submission! Loved the scratches!

djflowjob

Dope ! Nice scratches and flow! πŸ™ŒHave you mapped the pitch to the one knob on the z2 πŸ€”

Lord Of Kingz

Yes!

Dj Floops

Good submission but the video has a lot of room noise so it sounds a bit muffled. Next time try to record with a line into the cellphone or use video from the phone and audio from the mixer. Cheers.

Frederick Moore

Nice Wrok

Good Job playa

Dj Nino Leal

good Joe Latino

Joe Latino

Yes Florian Hobbiger I did Map it. I can show anyone how too. Just email joe_latino@live.ca and send a message. Thank you Bojidar Kafelov. I really appreciate it. Raj Dixon - YES πŸ‘ŠπŸ™ Dj Floops - In the words of ODB - "Baby I like it raaaaaaawwww" Hah but I was going to use the audio from the mixer and put it on the video, but I could distinguish the routine without doing it so I submitted it. Thank you for the tips though. Never used a line into my cell before. πŸ™ Frederick Moore - Thank you for commenting. Really appreciate it! πŸ‘Š Dj Nino Leal - Thank you a lot too! I appreciate all the comments and feedback. The community on here is sick πŸ‘Š much love from Canada.

Bro that was a dope set!!! Awesome flow

Chris "The Principal" Alaro

Good Job. I liked the way you mashed the two songs together...

DJ Key D.

good vibes

I agree with Floops. I record the audio to a different computer, than match it up with the camera audio and mute the camera audio. Bonus, you won't hear any fader clicks (if your hard on it) or high pitches from backspinning the needle, etc. that way.

I don't really post a lot online.. This was pretty much my first time doing a challenge against other DJs. I've only practiced in my apartment and have done some live dj shows and gotten feedback from that. This is good info to know though.. I'm wondering if I could post another video with better quality? I've learned so much from all the routines that I think I could incorporate a lot more into mine. Even if I submit a new video and they only use my first entry for a submission I'd be fine with that. I'm just looking to see how far I can truly take this routine in a minute and test myself with all the help from you guys. I'll try it out. Much respect on all the feedback.. for real thank you guys. πŸ™πŸ‘ŠπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Big up the Traktor z2 family in the house! In addition to my last comment...Bro regardless of the sound quality, it doesnt bring down this monster of a routine. Flows on flows on flows!!! The ordering of the samples and the way you cut em in... just make sense in a turntablist battle type of way. Hard respect πŸ‘Š from πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

DROPDJ

Mad Respek....Flow Guru

DayneJah is right. I was so hung up on the audio quality that I didn't fully listen to or embrace the routine itself. This is one of the most creative use of the samples (20 some odd videos in). Ive watched it a few times now anf really appreciate the effort into crafting the scratch sentences. Props from one Canadian to another 🍁

DJ Ray Dio

Landscape video is so much better

Dialz

Loved the intro dude. sounded really great

Micky Slicks

The timing is so smooth! Keep it up Joe!

DJ CMC

U gotta flow Joe, u gotta flow Joe! πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ‘πŸΏ

Joe Latino

Joe Latino

https://youtu.be/7-NK2T99zVc check out this 1 minute routine I made. Its not going to be submitted in the contest. Duplicates are not allowed. I just have to show you guys.

Joe Latino

I just want to give a big shout-out to Scratch Bastid and all of the skratchschool.com team. Not only did I up my game by watching tutorials, but I also learned a lot from other DJs in the community and their routines. After watching everybody's sumbmissions in the challenge, I decided to make another one. That's how inspiring this community is. All of you inspired me to learn more techniques and challenge myself. I want to give you guys all my respect for all of the constructive feedback and support. Much love and appreciation from Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ™

Tricky Mouse

Man, mapping the pitch to a Z2 knob is a great idea, and sounds really cool. I'm going to have to try that myself! Glad to see a fellow Canadian represent!

Joe Latino

Thanks Tricky .. Heres the mapping for it.. >>THIS IS DIRECTIONS FOR TRAKTOR USERS<< Under preferences click [CONTROLLER MANAGER] Under [DEVICE SETUP] Add - (choose your mixer) - Default. Under [ASSIGNMENT TABLE] click [Add in.. - Track Deck - Key Adjust. Under device mapping click -Learn (Then move the knob you want to use to adjust the key.) Under ASSIGNMENT click the deck you want it to control (Deck A or B) Make sure override Factory map is checked. *Take note that it will now use the knob for key adjust and not what it was originally map too. You can use any controller as well. That way you don't have to take a knob away from your mixer. I used the Deck C volume on my Z2. I don't use the remix decks because I still don't understand them. Just don't use something that you normally use. Be willing to give up a knob to control the key adjust. If you have any problems just email me. Joe_Latino@live.ca
