I got a fairly decent bonus check yesterday, realized I don’t have to pay tuition for at least another month, and decided to check out Craigslist. Lo, it was being sold by an experienced DJ looking to switch out for some new gear! Bennett from rhythm sektion (check that link for some nice MP3 downloads and readable web log action) cut me a pretty sweet deal and threw in a laptop stand and no fewer than three pairs of control records.
The only thing I’m missing is a pair of patch cables to get the pass-thru connected so I can still mix vinyl, but I can get those today at lunch. Meanwhile, my lovely girlfriend has declared that she will relinquish a metric shit-ton of MP3s she wants to dance to. Yes, people. I am situated.
Turns out rhythmsektion is one of the Sunday night DJs at Beauty Bar here in Austin. I’ll definitely have to check that scene out if/when I’m not at Back Alley Social (and you should, too)!
