Kutski, a former BBC Radio 1 presenter and DJ, is known for being a bit of a Pioneer-gear aficionado, so it’s not surprise to see CDJ-related tutorials and videos coming from him. In this video he’s tackling the recent addition of Slip Mode to the Pioneer CDJ 2000 Nexus line, something that he notes in the video stays relatively unused in many DJ sets. Slip Mode is currently only available on the Pioneer CDJ 2000 Nexus and Pioneer CDJ 900 Nexus although other controllers and softwares take advantage of it, as well as Traktor having its own version, Flux mode (watch a tutorial on that here).
Watch his tutorial below for a quick explanation of how slip mode can be used in combination with loops, reverse, jog scratching, and vinyl brake – as well as a full on demo of all of the techniques in a routine that starts at 3:26.
