Native Instruments' Stems have been out for a while now and some DJs have already started incorporating them into their sets. DJ Shiftee also took advantage of the added hardware support that is included in the D2 controllers. His routine blends old and new hardware that shows a new way to play with Traktor's Stem Decks.

After DJ Craze’s routine, we knew that Shiftee would be itching to take a stab at a routine on the Kontrol Z2 – and it’s finally here. With a brand new gold-topped Maschine MkII to match his golden Technics 1200s, Shiftee most certainly will account for a fair amount of holiday gear lust for DJs […]
