Celebrate International DJ Day by learning the craft of DJing, with the ultimate starter kit that will provide any aspiring DJ the best setup to begin their journey on the decks. Marked on 9th March 2022, International DJ Day represents a day dedicated to recognising and celebrating disc jockeys the world over and is the perfect excuse for any enthusiast to begin mastering the skills behind the decks.
Setup twenty years ago, International DJ Day formally acknowledges DJs and the art of DJing worldwide, annually. With clubs marking the day with parties and DJs performing mixes, International DJ Day is an opportunity for everyone to get involved. Hobbyists can join in by completing their DJ setup with the best equipment from Pioneer DJ – a world-class manufacturer of DJ equipment.
For beginners and enthusiasts wanting to kickstart their DJ skills, the DDJ-REV1 is the perfect DJ controller to learn the craft. Launched earlier this year, the DDJ-REV1 is a 2-channel controller which is accompanied with the free Serato DJ Lite software. It has a brand-new battle-style layout that’s easy to use and perfect for playing like a pro DJ. With unique features, the DDJ-REV1 has a spacious layout and its jog wheels have been sized up so that scratching will feel as effortless as possible. Whether you’re mixing from hip-hop to pop, battling it out in a DJ scratch competition or just laying on some epic tunes – the DDJ-REV1 has it all.
For DJ headphones, pair the controller with the HDJ-CUE1s. They will allow you to hear the richness in your music when DJing and deliver low frequencies in the bass and kick drums, so that you can mix precisely and know exactly what will be heard when the next track drops. Available in either a wired option or Bluetooth version, the headphones come in 3 different colour ways.
Complete the DJ set up with the DM-50 speakers. Available in black or white pairs, the speakers are easy to set up, tune, and use – making them ideal for a variety of purposes – from DJing and music production through to throwing parties. They deliver a balanced, punchy bass sound and they can pump out extra power when you need it as they’re loaded with a new Class D amplifier and a 5-inch woofer in each unit. The state-of-the-art monitor system is a high-performance, all-purpose speaker offering any aspiring DJ or music lover the best in sound experience.
Ideal for novices and hobbyists, the DDJ-REV1, HDJ-CUE1 headphones and DM-50 speakers complete the ultimate starter kit for aspiring DJs and will have anyone bossing the decks in no time. Priced from £59 for the wired HDJ-CUE1s, £199 for the DM-50 speakers and £259 for the DDJ-REV1 controller – Pioneer DJ offers the best in tech for DJ newcomers, that is affordable.
