We’re excited to share a new routine straight out of Native Instruments’ Tokyo artist lounge featuring GENRE BNDR, which includes, DJ Rafik (2007 DMC World Championship Champion), Kireek (2007-2011 DMC World Championship Team Champion), and DJ Yuto (2016 DMC World Championship Champion). This remarkable routine incorporates live turntablism, controllerism, and finger-drumming all into one routine – a clever synchronized dance between four DJs. Watch below as the power-team get down in the lounge:

It is always exciting to see high-quality routines come out that feature DJs flexing on the decks. However, we don’t often witness four DJs mix together on a level like this – a complete change from the Ultra live streams of DJ duos “mixing”. These guys, on their own, show us a wide set of skills from turntablism to finger-drumming, and then play off one another at the same caliber as a well-seasoned band.
Groups like Genre BNDR shows that it is possible to team up with friends and play live. It will take a lot more time and practice – much like a band – but the results can be amazing and the process looks ridiculously fun.
