Serato Itch Contest For A Trip To Perform At The WMC 2009

Josh Pagtalunan aka The Phatal DJ (AFF DJ Crew) reached out to us via email and asked us to post this on our blog. Josh entered in a Serato Itch contest-the winner gets sent to the WMC's. Well after watching his set, its more than worthy. We still dont anyone who actually owns the Itch program and some of our loyal true vinyl DJ's have mixed feeling towards it-But The Phatal DJ displays a dope showcase, proving the Itch can handle the goods: trick mixing, scratching, style and creativity. To vote for the contestants or to enter in the contest, click HERE. Good Luck Josh!

For The Love Of Music: Ronald Jenkees

"I make videos to (hopefully) entertain, share my music, and encourage others to play even if they're just getting started. No matter where you plan to take your music, I think it's time well spent. Whether you're hammering out "Mary Had a Little Lamb" or something crazy complicated, music can and should be fun" -Ronald Jenkees
