I was djing the night before at Artisan Afterhours in Vegas, so I decided to passed by the my boy Cheapshot’s 1st Firepoo event in Las Vegas, Nevada and got the chance to meet this guy!
After i read his autobiography a few years ago, I felt that much more connected to Hip hop, music, and this legend’s life. Then i got to meet him at my boy Cheapshot’s 1st Firepoo event in Las Vegas Nevada, and got to see how down to earth dj’s really are. Even this legend!
shout out to Dj Cheapshot, Dj Vice and Dj 5ive for hosting a great event and all the djs that attended..it was good to catch up with all of you.
I have to give a big shout to my supporter, Nelson from Shure for having me out to the show.. and then i realized i didn’t even take a pic of that booth.. i suck at life. NAMM 2012 was fun and full of tech but i was a litle disappointed, i didn’t get to chat with reps from Ableton or Native instruments because they didn’t have booths.. I felt like the show lacked some of the super technological things around the corner from now but nonetheless still some really cool stuff to see.. my favorite piece of equipment at the show had to be Moog’s Minitaur bass synthesizer.. amazing!
Recently i flew to Vegas to dj a few gigs and found the need to take my Akai Apc 40 with me. I was already taking a big suitcase with me because i stayed in Vegas for longer than I have ever been in Vegas. I didn’t want to carry an extra bag for the APC. I needed a backpack that would not only carry/protect my laptop and a few other necessities but would also hold my APC and a full size hard drive along with what i would normally take to a gig. Not an easy feat. I looked high and low for the right bag and finally discovered, Odyssey’s Redline Series BRL Backspin.
I verified that this bag would fit the APC-40 and decided to try this bag out for this trip. Let me say that this bag fit everything i needed to bring and still had space to spare.
The thing I like about this bag versus other bags is that it fits everything nicely and is abundantly padded..and yet when its full, it doesnt feel like you’re wearing a big ass truck on your back. For all the stuff you’re able to fit in this bag, its relatively compact.
The bag had tons of pockets and padded sections and held everything from some extra CDs to enough room for up to 20 pieces of records (who carries those anymore? :I ). I had a stanton stand neatly tucked into a pocket and the front upper pocket fits a pair of headphones in nicely so it doesn’t get smashed or broken. There were even small pockets on the side for stickers as you see in some of the pictures. All in all I like the bag. it serves its purpose very well.
Shout out to Odyssey for producing such a nice bag and just in time for my trip!
