Greetings friends! First and foremost- We hope this message finds you well.
As many of us DJs find ourselves spending more time in our homes and studios, we look to the tools around us for support and inspiration. Fortunately being a bedroom DJ has never been as accessible as it is now. Giant leaps in DJ technology has helped bridge the gap between what’s at home and the main stage. At a time like this it’s important to take full advantage of what is available to us to get the full DJing experience no matter the environment. Check out what we think are some of the Essentials for a Bedroom DJ in 2020.
Phase continues to make giant strides within the turntablist and overall DJ community. With more and more DJ’s like Craze, Chris Karns, Miles Medina and more using it day to day touring or even when practicing at home it’s proven it’s worth as a new staple in a DJ’s setup. No longer having to worry about styli replacements is a huge win in itself, but add the fact that it is soon to be integrated directly with Serato and it’s a no-brainer why so many DJ’s have been buying their own sets of Phase.
Between practice sessions it’s always important to keep your gear as fresh and protected as possible even in your own home. We can never overlook a pet on the prowl or an inattentive loved one that could scratch or seriously damage our gear when we’re not paying attention. Accidents happen and Decksaver has shown time and time again that investing in your equipment’s well-being will have you worrying less about something that’s supposed to be your in-home therapy.
Laptop & Controller Stands
At home another challenge DJ’s face is the size of the entire setup. Turntables, mixers, and controllers take their fair share of room, so having a laptop stand will help reduce your overall footprint and will give you a better angle to work with when sitting down or standing up while you prep and mix. The Headliner Digistand is a great solution because of its adjustable height and rotating laptop tray for multiple setups. It also features a foldable body design for easy break downs and a carrying pouch for storage whenever it’s not in use.
Also see the Magma Vektor Stand for your laptop or the Magma Control Stand II for a stand that holds both your laptop and DJ controller simultaneously.
