After years of feedback from professional DJs, Pioneer released an update for rekordbox, a handy bit of software designed to prepare music libraries on external storage devices for use with Pioneer’s hardware, such as CDJs. You can download rekordbox 3.0 here for free!
The revamped software includes a new and much more intuitive user interface. Among the new features, the “match” function allows DJs to connect similar tracks that go well with one another for quick access during performances. The software will also make suggestions based on certain aspects of a song including key and BPM. Check out this video that demonstrates rekordbox’s new capabilities!

Our man Durkin strikes again, lending his production skills to local Dorchester rapper Black El for the track “Olde English 800.” Black El begins with some auto-tuned R&B vocals before beginning his witty yet technical verses, stylisticly reminiscent of Childish Gambino. Durkin and Victor Radz assure that the beat is constantly evolving and changing in dynamics to keep the chilled out, summer vibes flowing.
The track has already seen some blog love from Pigeons and Planes.
Catch Durkin at these upcoming gigs:
Saturday 7/5 – $$$ TRIPLE-PLATINUM $$$
Friday 7/11 – DREAM CLUB w/ BRENMAR, DURKIN & DAYGLOW
Friday 7/25 – #centralAIR at ZuZu
The track is up for free download, so make sure to follow Durkin, Victor Radz and Black El to keep up.
