DJ Shiftee Locked in with 2 Turntables and Traktor Kontrol S8

Native Instruments have released a very cool new video of the S8 today featuring DJ Shiftee doing a one-take live performance. Oh, it's pretty awesome.  

Check out this turntable routine by DJ Shiftee, who is using S8 as a DVS mixer for 2x turntables. He also uses a lot of the functionality that's on the S8, i.e. Freeze Mode, Remix Decks control, the screens etc. 

It just goes to show that the S8 is not just for the techno/house guys, and as you can see below Shiftee did a really good job creating a great routine, especially considering NI locked him in their storage facility and left him to his own devices. Admittedly, I can think of much worse places to be locked away!!

  • Alt-J - Left Hand Free (Lido Remix)
  • Low Pros - Who Wanna Play (Feat. Que)
  • DJ Shiftee - Uh Yo And Also Yo
