The most common set-up you will see in a club or at a festival is the iconic Pioneer CDJs (usually 2-4) and a Pioneer DJM-900 mixer. While many top performers may not utilize all the features and possibilities that this set-up offers, we’ve found someone who does. Yamato is a Japanese DJ who is lighting fast and precise on the 1s, 2s, 3s,and 4s.
His set blends a variety of progressive and electro house while keeping at least two decks live at a time. What’s really interesting about his set is his use of on-board effects, looping, and the implementation of the Pioneer RMX-500. Watch his performance of “Black” and read what’s happening behind the decks.
YAMATO actually was involved with the design of the CDJ-2000s, so it’s no surprise the man has complete control over his decks.
Pioneer’s RMX-500 is a great tool for adding external, unique effects to the entire mix. Support DJTT and pick one up today!
