Atlantic City, NJ (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Stanton® DJ, a part of the Gibson® Pro Audio Division, is once again bringing the future of DJ gear and talent to DJ Expo 2013 in Atlantic City, NJ, August 13-15. Three-time Grammy Award winner, hip-hop legend, and Stanton headliner DJ Premier will kick off this year’s stellar roster of events on Tuesday, August 13 at 3:30 PM by spinning on Stanton’s STR8.150 Turntables at booth #500. There will also be daily raffle drawings to win a pair of Cerwin-Vega!’s XD3 desktop speakers, with the first right after DJ Premier’s 3:30 PM performance on Tuesday.
Prior to his performance, DJ Premier will participate in a Q&A session, hosted by DJ Times and sponsored by Stanton and Gibson Pro Audio, at 2 PM on Tuesday, August 13 in Diamond Room D.
DJ Premier, part of the seminal hip-hop duo Gang Starr, has lent his signature style—which seamlessly melds jazz, funk and soul samples—to major artists including Jay-Z, Christina Aguilera, Kanye West, Janet Jackson, The Notorious B.I.G, KRS-One, and Rakim. Like DJ Premier, Stanton’s STR8.150 delivers the kind of classic sound that spawned the hip-hop generation. Featuring a skip-proof straight tone arm, industry-leading torque motor and ultra-stable platter, key correction, reverse capabilities, S/PDIF digital out, and 50% pitch adjustment, the crowning touch is a super-durable base that minimizes feedback.
Wednesday at 3 PM, famed New York beat-boxer, producer and hip-hop artist DJ Biz Markie takes over the DJ Expo main stage performing on the innovative Stanton SCS.4 DJ USB Mixstation, with additional DJ performances daily in the Stanton booth from L.A.’s DJ Serafin and DJ Miss Joy from Las Vegas Cosmopolitan. Leave your laptop at home: the SCS4.DJ’s heavy-duty internal processing power, coupled with a high-resolution color display, means that DJs from hip-hop to hardcore can simply plug in a storage device and start mixing using the built-in decks, mixer, and effects—no computer required.
