Last time we were talking about Vekked’s DJing skills was when he won the DMC World DJ Championships in October. He has since been back to talk to DJTT about buying turntables in 2016, but now he is back with a golden set that continues to show DJs what it takes to make a world championship routine.
When Vekked took the World Champion title last year he also took home a gold-plated Rane TTM57 MKII and this new routine is focused on the style of his winning set along with the prize. Like his winning set, this one pushes the boundaries with aspects of turntablism, controllerism, and production being put all mixed together into one six-minute set.
The set opens with the announcer from the World Championships emphasizing that a winning routine must be no more than six minutes. Vekked produces that into a delay and then into a “five time champion” sample that flexes his title. After which Vekked proceeds to showcase his juggling skills, pitch control, and tight scratching. In this “Gold Set” we see the same versatility as his world championship set. Three decks, beat juggling, and even tone play as he manipulates single one shots via scratching the decks and fader-based pitch modulation. The video may be more cinematic than informative, however, Vekked leaves nothing out of this performance and he shows that his limited gold-plated mixer is definitely being put to good use.
