Featured in the DJ City TV Video Series “Toneplay!”

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Today I’m proud to announce that some of my material has been featured in a video for DJCityTV in their video series entitled “Toneplay.”

Toneplay is a relatively new addition to the artform of DJing where advances in technology make it possible to play specific pieces of a song like a piano.  “Cue points” can be assigned to specific notes or drums in a song, and triggered by pressing a button, so if cue points are set up properly, the notes of a song can be played like a piano.  The natural evolution of this is to take those notes and play another song.  This has been dubbed Toneplay, and is becoming prevalent in the DJ Battle scene.  Here’s my video, where I demonstrate a few of my toneplay routines:

It’s really an honor to have my material included…the good folks at DJ City told me that they’ve been pretty pick about who they’ve selected to contribute thus far, so there are only 5 videos preceding mine in the series, recorded by some absolutely stellar DJs.  These include VH1’s Master Of The Mix Star –  DJ Dynamix, 2012 Redbull Threestyle World Champ – Four Color Zack, LA Based DJ/Producer Morse Code, Q104.7’s Kidd Spin, and Power106’s Disko Drew.  You can check out their contributions to the Toneplay series here.
