Dubspot, City’s world-class Electronic Music and DJ Institute, contributed to the 2008 Remix Hotel NYC by holding a Digital DJing seminar featuring the latest MIDI DJ controllers, and by conducting the “DJing On Air” Native Instruments Traktor / MacBook Air demonstration at Apple’s West 14th Street retail store.
The Digital DJing showcased the Livid Instruments Ohm MIDI controller, JazzMutant’s Lemur, Novation’s Nocturn, and Ecler’s brand new EVO5 DJ mixer. The event was highlighted by a Controllerism performance by Moldover who rocked out on his own Frankenstein creation with Ableton Live to the crowd’s delight. Dubspot then brought their brand of personalized instruction to Apple. Dubbed “DJing On Air,” Dubspot’s instructors demonstrated Traktor Scratch on Apple’s insanely thin MacBook Air.
The event was a tremendous success and exposed hundreds of enthusiasts who were hungry to learn about the latest advances in DJing. Dubspot also used the Remix Hotel NYC as a platform to officially announce their designation as a Certified AbletonTraining Center. Only one of three educational facilities in the world to achieve this status, Dubspot has an extensive Ableton Live curriculum for everyone interested in this dynamic music software from the first time user to the seasoned pro.
