HP and Microsoft

Please don’t stop the music

by Administrator 27 minutes ago - last edited 19 minutes ago

Last week was a blur of events, traveling, and much more. In addition to Fast Company’s 6th Annual Masters of Design event, HP and Microsoft came together to celebrate the launch of Windows 7. Lots of great people were there: Andru Edwards from GearLive, Judie Lipsett of GearDiary, Hector Russo of Geeksroom, John Obeto of Absolutely Windows, Maegan Ortiz from Vivirlatino, Helena Stone from Chip Chick and Xavier Lanier from Notebooks.com.

Xavier took some great photos at the party, which are posted below. You can also see these photos and read his thoughts about the event on his Web site here.


Of course, credit for keeping the partying going goes to DJ Hapa, who certainly attracted a lot of attention. A lot of partygoers were even more intrigued when they found out he was actually using the machine to mix and play music with an application called Tracktor Scratch Pro. With its design, the HP Envy 15 fit in very well and looked like it belonged there.

In case you were wondering, the headphones donned during the party were the new Beats by Dre headphones.

Check out the full set up below...

Pretty sweet – have you guys seen any awesome set-ups at the club or lounge lately? I’d like to hear all about it over in the forums.

HP x Beats by Dre x NI

  
So...according to Jimmy Iovine (chairman of Interscope), the way we listen to music now is a travesty...and I couldnt agree more- 

The song that you are listening to through your iTunes right now, or even in your car, and especially on your phone or your ipod is NOT the same as the song that was mastered in the studio- 

His analogy was watching a Blu Ray disk on a black and white portable TV- 

In comes one piece of the solution...


HP and Beats by Dre and Native Instruments have all teamed up to create the best SOUNDING laptop...

In addition to that, it is insanely beefed up (I cannot disclose the specs right now...but believe me its nuts) 

So for everyone out there that thinks the MacBook Pro is the pinnacle of notebook computers...get ready to be blown away...

I have had the opportunity to help work on this a little bit and I have to say...the computer is amazing...

Stay tuned for more!  Hapa 



Dre, Timbo, and Polow da Don at the private party/press conference

Fanny Paks?

So I went to Staples to go and pick some stuff up...

In walked this woman, wearing a fanny pak!   Then, I look at the guy in front of me- and he has one on too!!!  



Since when did Fanny Paks come back in?   If you ever catch me wearing a Fanny Pak, you have my permission to beat me over the head with whatever you might have

Random

We were out in Piedmont (a small suburb on the East Bay just outside of Oakland/Emeryville) and we spotted one of the best road signs ever...



Ironically (or not), Hammer's house is probably several miles from this...

Mixx Mistress on DJ101

The DJ community is massive with thousands of DJ's from coast to coast. However, the number of DJ's who are truly skilled at their craft falls short to those who claim the status of DJ. The ramifi- cations of a WACK DJ is devastating, you all know it and we have all experienced it. You’re on the dance floor getting your party on and the DJ drops a song that is off beat or that clears the dance floor. UNACCEPTABLE!!!

I am Mixx Mistress, an up and coming DJ whose passion for the game is rooted in a love for the art of DJ’ing and the desire to preserve the authenticity of the Hip Hop DJ. I am four weeks deep in Scratch DJ Academies/DJ101 course and I must say, this class is OFF THE HOOK!

Big ups to the Late Great Jam Master Jay for passing on his legendary DJ skills. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

The skills I have learned in just four weeks traditionally take years for a DJ to acquire and that’s contingent upon the fledgling DJ’s ability to connect with a skilled DJ/Crew. As a Scratch DJ 101 student, I am emerged in a comprehensive curriculum that is creating an undeniable foundation for my DJ career. The class is a culmination of lectures, hands on activities, and authentic DJ techniques that are sure to put me at the top of my game. Bottom line, this class is mad fun! Time just seems to fly during our two hours course. I could easily go several more hours under the skilled and engaging instruction of DJ Hapa and Ver5e. They will definitely see me in DJ151 next quarter.

My questions to all “DJ’s”:
-Do you know how to match beats creatively yet efficiently?
-Do you know how to drop your next song with out disrupting the dance floor?
-Can you handle technical issues that may arise with your equipment?
-Do you even deserve the title DJ?

If you have answered no to one or more of these questions,
Stop Playing!
You might want to go on and register for that DJ101 course available at Scratch DJ Academy Los Angeles, New York, & Miami. Do us all one solid and skill-up on the true art and craft of the DJ; handed down by The Incomparable, The Legend, Jam Master Jay***

Disclaimer:
As of date, Mixx Mistress has been a DJ for approximately 4 weeks with no prior DJ experience. Never the less, the truth must be told.
