Serato Announces DJ-Drive System For Tesla Cars

In an almost unbelievable announcement, Serato's DJ Pro is now completely integrated into Tesla's range of semi-autonomous vehicles. Elon Musk explains more...  

Serato is thrilled to announce a new strategic partnership with electric auto giants, Tesla. The game changing integration will deliver the world’s-first “DJ-Drive” system, enabling Tesla drivers to DJ from behind the wheel using their in-car touchscreen.

This a free update for Tesla drivers and is now available in Tesla’s latest firmware release.

Tesla co-founder and CEO, Elon Musk, says “we are seeing the benefits of semi-autonomous cars in full-effect.

“Driving a car no longer means having two eyes on the road and two hands on the wheel at all times. It means relaxing, it means catching up on emails, it means DJing for your friends,”

Serato’s Chief Marketing Officer, Scotty Hoogerbrug, says combining Serato’s technology with Tesla’s is a “dream come true” and just the beginning. “It’s a unique new direction for us, and a powerful new application for our software.”

“In addition to integrating a fully-featured Serato DJ Pro, we’ve also developed exclusive features for the DJ-driver,” Hoogerbrug says. “In particular, drivers can attach the coveted Novation Dicers to their steering wheel to trigger cues, flips and loops without looking at their screen. And switch between autonomous, hands-free mode, or Scratch Live mode to try DJ and drive at the same time.”

The update also includes Serato Video integration, Karaoke Mode, and an evolution of Tesla’s infamous Ludacris Mode - replacing the vehicle horn with the rapper’s hallmark “Luda” tagline.
