    I'm just about to pull the trigger on a set of Evox J8s.

    I've never dug FBT and I mount some lights onto the array poles so the Evolve is out of the question. The fact it gets great reviews and...

    Work colleagues ask me the same. My answer is I spend about 12 hours a week in my built in hot tub decompressing. There's a mobile DJ Mag article out there about it

    Which is why I don't like stock photos because they stick out like a sore thumb and aren't representative of what you as a DJ can do. It's usually quite obvious when photos have been nicked too as...

    They're all my videos. They are however shot on near 4k worth of camera and lenses then edited in Final Cut Pro so not your usual wonky underexposed camera phone takes.
