This unit will retain the setting you have made for most of the functions even if you unplug it. These functions include Pitch Range, Pitch Lock, Key Lock, effects, Vinyl and Touch Rewind, Single/Continuous, Auto BPM, and Repeat. In addition, the unit will save and recall cue points and loops saved to the four pads for up to 500 CD's. To save cue points, loops, and setting, press and hold the SAVE button until the display reads SAVING For example, if everytime you turn on the unit you want it to load up in vinyl mode, with the pitch range set to 16%, single mode, and auto cue on, turn on all those functions and save. WARNING: Do not power off the unit right after saving. You must wait at least 3 seconds in order for the new presets / cue points to be stored in memory.

20. PITCH LOCK BUTTON When illuminated, the pitch control is locked at 0%, regardless of the pitch sliders position. 21. JOG WHEEL This touch-sensitive wheel has multiple functions: a. When in pause or cue mode (without vinyl mode engaged), the jog wheel can be used as a frame search control, allowing you to set it to a specific point (frame). b. During normal playback (without vinyl mode engaged), the wheel works as a pitch bend, similar to a push or a drag on a turntable. Turning the wheel counter-clockwise temporarily slows down the playback speed according to the speed, velocity, and duration thats applied to the wheel. Turning the wheel clockwise temporarily speeds up the playback speed. Pitch will return to the current setting when the wheel stops. c. When in VINYL mode, the top platter acts just like a vinyl turntable, moving the playback position forward or back in response to your movements. The outer jog wheel still performs the pitch bend function (or effects ratio when Jog is on). d. TOUCH REWIND mode is similar to vinyl mode, except playback returns to the Cue point anytime the top platter is touched. The outer jog wheel still performs the pitch bend function (or effects ratio when Jog is on). e. The wheel can also be used to adjust the out point of a loop. Activate the Loop Out Adjust mode by holding down the Loop Out button until the numeric position shows at the bottom of the display. Turn the wheel to the new out point. Press Loop Out again to save the new point and exit the mode, or press Reloop to exit and return to the previous out point. 22. PITCH SLIDER Used to adjust the playback pitch percentage. The slider is a set adjustment and will remain set until it is either moved, or the PITCH LOCK is turned on. 23. PITCH BEND BUTTONS Used to temporarily decrease or increase the playback speed. Pitch will return to the current setting when released. 24. SAMPLER BUTTON Once cue and/or loops are saved to one or all of the MEMORY PADS (#26) the SAMPLER button can be engaged (illuminated blue). Once in this mode, sounds stored in the MEMORY PADS will play regardless of whether the unit is in CUE, PLAY, or PAUSE mode. This means that you can play samples at the same time that your CD is playing. Press the SAMPLER button again to disable and stop sample playback. The audio sample can even play after the disc has been ejected. The sampler pitch can be adjusted by turning the TIME KNOB, or by pressing the button down and rotating the JOG WHEEL simultaneously. The sampler volume can be adjusted by turning the RATIO KNOB or by pressing the button down and rotating the JOG WHEEL simultaneously. By using the SAMPLE MODE button (section #34), samples can be played once, or looped continuously.


The C.314 will automatically go into sleep mode after 15 minutes of inactivity. Press either the Play or Cue button to wake it up.
The touch sensitivity of the jog wheel can be adjusted to fit the needs and feel of different users. When adjusting the sensitivity, be conscious of extreme settings which may affect your performance. Setting the sensitivity too high would engage the touch sensitivity with the hand just above the wheel. Setting the sensitivity too low may not engage the touch even while pressing firmly on the wheel. To adjust the jog wheel touch sensitivity, press and hold the PITCH BEND button while turning either encoder. Release PITCH BEND when done. Wait at least 3 seconds before powering off the unit.


To return to factory settings Power off the unit Press and hold the CLEAR button as you power up the unit, The display will read clearALL, release the CLEAR button WARNING: Restoring factory settings will delete cue point memory.


By connecting the CD player to a mixing board that has the fader start feature, the crossfader will engage playback or cue mode depending on its location. If the CD player is connected to the left side of the crossfader, playback will start once the fader is moved from the left most position towards the right. The CD player will re-cue itself when the crossfader is brought back to the left most position. Two CD players can be hooked up in this fashion to work on both sides of the crossfader.

25. LOOP IN / OUT / RELOOP These buttons control the marker points for seamless, on-the-fly looping. Press IN to set a cue point or the starting point of a seamless loop. Press OUT to set the ending point of a loop, and the loop will continue to play until the OUT button is pressed again. If a seamless loop has been made, but the CD player is not actively in loop mode (not playing), pressing the RELOOP button will instantly reactivate the loop. Press OUT to exit the loop. LOOP and RELOOP will appear in the LCD display when the reloop function is available. During play mode, pressing the RELOOP button will instantly return play to the last set point without interrupting playback. The wheel can also be used to adjust the out point of a loop. Activate the Loop Out Adjust mode by holding down the Loop Out button until the numeric position shows at the bottom of the display. Turn the wheel to the new out point. Press Loop Out again to save the new point and exit the mode, or press Reloop to exit and return to the previous out point 26. MEMORY PADS Four different cue points and/or loops can be saved to these buttons. See operating instructions on page 11 for further explanation. 27. CLEAR BUTTON Clears cue points stored in the MEMORY PADS (please refer to item #25). 28. SAVE BUTTON After creating a loop point (#25), pressing this button allows you to store the loop to one of the four MEMORY PADS. While the SAVE button is flashing red, press one of the memory pads to store the loop in that location. Pads can also be overwritten in the same way. 29. PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON Press to play the CD from the current location, or to pause it at the current location. 30. CUE BUTTON During normal playback, pressing the button immediately returns the track to the last set cue point and pauses playback when released. Pressing CUE again will engage the cue monitor, which plays the track from the cue point until you release the CUE button. If you press pause (#29) at any time other than the currently stored cue point, pressing CUE will reset the cue point to the new position. Whenever the Cue button is flashing, pressing it will save a new Cue point. A cue point can also be set in real time in VINYL MODE by holding the top portion of the platter and pressing cue, a cue point will be set at the current position.

31. SEEK BUTTONS Allows you to SEEK through a track or a CD in either direction. While in pause mode, tracks can be moved one frame at a time. Holding down one of these buttons will cause the search in that direction to occur at a faster rate. Holding down either Seek button while turning the wheel will engage Fast Search. 32. SEARCH BUTTONS Tapping one of these buttons will skip to the previous or next track. Holding it down will rapidly skip through the tracks. 33. OPEN/CLOSE BUTTON Opens or closes the CD tray. The CD will only eject while in pause or cue mode, and will not work while a CD is playing. If the tray is left open, it will close automatically after a brief time. 34. SAMPLER SEQUENCER Once you have more than one pad loaded with a cue or loop, these pads can be sequenced and played back in succession in the order that you choose. For example, if you have all four pads loaded, press the SAMPLER (#24) button to enter this mode. Press the RECORD button and it will light red. Then press the PADS buttons in the desired sequence. Up to 12 steps can be stored in this sequence. Then press the PLAY button in the SAMPLER SEQUENCER section and the sequence will play. Press MODE to switch between SAMPLE or LOOP mode. SAMPLE will play the sequence once, then end. LOOP MODE will continue to play the sequence over and over. The SAMPLER SEQUENCER feature works in CUE, PLAY, OR PAUSE modes. Sample mode has two functions. When playing a sample from the memory pads, the sample will stop playing as soon as the pad is released. Sample mode also means the SAMPLER SEQUENCER will play through the sequence once and end. When in Loop mode, both samples and sequences will play continuously until the sampler mode is disabled 35. REVERSE BUTTON When engaged (illuminated) playback will occur in the opposite direction (backwards). This function works for normal playback, sample playback and loop playback.
Creating Loops Engage playback by pressing the PLAY/PAUSE button, causing it to illuminate solid green (not flashing). Set the start point of the seamless loop by pressing the IN button at the desired point in time. This will cause the OUT button to flash green. Set the end point of the loop by pressing the OUT button at the desired point in time. Playback will immediately return to the previously set IN point and play to the OUT point, creating a seamless loop without interruption. The RELOOP button will now be flashing green, and the LOOP indicator on the LCD screen will now be flashing. To exit the loop, press the OUT button again. When the music reaches the OUT point, it will play through it instead of looping back to the IN point. To replay or re-enter the loop, press the RELOOP button. The loop can be re-triggered by pressing the RELOOP button (until a new loop is created). Press the OUT button to exit the loop again. Modifying Loops Once a seamless loop is created, the OUT point can be changed. Hold down the Loop Out button until the time position shows at the bottom of the display. Turn the wheel to the desired out point. Press Loop Out again to save the new point and exit the mode, or press Reloop to exit and return to the previous out point.

Changing the Sample Pitch and Level The pitch and level of each sample can be adjusted individually. In order to do so, Sample mode must be active, and the sample you wish to adjust must be playing. With the sample playing, press and hold the SAMPLE button until it starts flashing. To adjust the pitch, turn the SAMPLE PITCH encoder. For broad adjustments, press and turn the encoder. To adjust the level, turn the SAMPLE LEVEL encoder. For broad adjustments, press and to turn the encoder.


Once you have more than one pad loaded with a cue or loop, samples can be sequenced and played back in succession in the order that you choose. This works like any ordinary step-sequencer, meaning that samples are sequenced offline so it does not matter how quickly you trigger the samples, it will play the entire sample then move on to the next one seamlessly. Creating a Sequence With the sampler engaged, press the RECORD button in the SAMPLER SEQUENCER section (#34) and it will light red. Press the pads in the desired sequence (empty pads will not be recorded). Up to 12 steps can be stored. If you are recording less than 12 steps, press record again to end the sequencing. Press the PLAY button in the SAMPLER SEQUENCER section and the sequence will play. Press MODE to switch between SAMPLE or LOOP modes. SAMPLE will play the sequence once, then end. LOOP MODE will continue to play the sequence over and over until sampler mode is disabled. The SAMPLER SEQUENCER feature works in CUE, PLAY, OR PAUSE modes. Sample and Loop modes Sample mode has two functions. When playing a sample from the memory pads, the sample will stop playing as soon as the pad is released. Sample mode also means the SAMPLER SEQUENCER will play through the sequence once and end. When in Loop mode, both samples and sequences will play continuously until the sampler mode is disabled.


Using Cue Points To save a cue point to an empty pad, simply press the pad. It will flash red, and then turn solid green, letting you know that a cue point has been stored. Press the button again, and playback will seamlessly restart from the stored cue point and the button will turn red. You can repeatedly press the Pads to create a stuttering effect. If the unit is in pause or cue mode, pressing the button will start playback from the stored cue point, but will only keep playing while the button is depressed, just like the main CUE button. To save the current cue point (either created manually or by the Auto Cue function), first press SAVE, then the pad on which to save the cue point. Using Loops Loops must be created using the main loop interface. Once a loop Is created, press the SAVE button followed by the pad on which to save that loop. Clearing the Pads Press the CLEAR button (#27). While it is flashing, press the pad(s) you wish to clear and those will also flash red. Press CLEAR once more to complete the process, and the pad lights will now turn off, letting you know that there is no information stored in them.


36. AUDIO OUT This analog output signal requires a pair of RCA cables (left and right) to be connected to a line level input. 37. DIGITAL OUT This digital output signal requires one SP/DIF (75 Ohm, coaxial) cable to be connected to a SP/DIF input on your mixer or computer. 38. FADER START / RELAY This connection allows two CD players to be linked for relay play. This can also be connected to a mixing board that supports automatic fader start. 39. VENT SLITS These openings are used for the proper ventilation of the unit. In order to prevent overheating and to insure proper operation, do not cover or block these slits. 40. POWER BUTTON Turns the unit on and off. 41. AC IN Plug in the power supply cable here. The plug can only be inserted in one direction, so do not force it.


The on-board sampler simply uses cue points and loops, and plays them back from the internal memory, independently of the audio from the disc. Once cue points or loops are stored to one or more of the memory pads, pressing the SAMPLER button (#24) will engage sampler mode. SAMPLER button will illuminate in blue. Use any memory pad to trigger a sample.

Adjusting the Pitch With your first deck playing and your second deck cued, start playback in sync with the downbeat of the song playing on the other deck. Quickly adjust the pitch using the PITCH SLIDER to match the tempo of deck one. Moving the slider up (away from you) will decrease the tempo, while moving it down will increase the tempo. Pitch Bending As you are finding the right tempo, the track position will drift until it is finetuned and the tempo is matched. Pitch Bending provides a quick fix to keep the position as close as possible to deck one. Pressing the PITCH BEND or PITCH BEND + buttons will decrease or increase the speed of playback temporarily. The extent to which the speed is changed is proportionate to the amount of time the button is pressed. For example, if the PITCH BEND + button is held in continuously, the speed continues to increase until the maximum limit set by the PITCH RANGE is reached. Once the PITCH BEND + button is released the pitch will return to the pitch set by the PITCH SLIDER. The jog wheel can also be used to temporarily bend the pitch of the music during normal playback. Rotate the wheel clockwise to speed up and counter-clockwise to slow down. The speed that you rotate the jog wheel determines the percent of pitch bend. It is recommended that you use the outer edge of the jog wheel for this type of control, as touching the top surface may cause interruption of playback in certain modes of operation. Key Lock This functions allows the tempo or BPM of the music to be altered without affecting the musical key. While this button is illuminated, the key will be locked at zero. This is handy when accelerating tracks to avoid the chipmunk effect.


Effects There are seven on-board effects: auto filter, manual filter, echo, pan, phase, flanger, and transformer. Up to three effects can be used simultaneously. To activate an effect, simply tap the desired FX SELECT button. Both filters are activated via the FILTER button. The manual filter is activated by holding down the button until it lights up green. Parameters Use the Time Division Indicators to change the effects time in sync with the music, or the FX TIME encoder to adjust it manually. When 1/4 is selected, the activated effect will modulate with every quarter beat; 1/2 signifies half beats; 3/4 signifies three quarter beats; 1/1 signifies one beat; 2/1 signifies 2 beats; and 4/1 signifies 4 beats (1 measure). The FX RATIO encoder controls the depth, feedback, or level, depending on the effect. This parameter can also be controled by the outer jog wheel by activating the OUTER JOG button. Hint: With OUTER JOG active, turn on the manual filter by holding the FILTER button. Now, turn the outer wheel to create a filter sweep.


57. ANTI SHOCK AND BUFFER INDICATOR Indicates the current status of the buffer memory. This is represented on the display by a bucket being filled or emptied. The bucket itself represents the instant start function (which works by buffer memory). If the bucket is flashing, the instant start is not available. Each bar within the bucket represents 2 seconds of anti shock protection. There is up to 10 seconds of anti shock protection available. It is recommended to let the bucket fill up before using the jog wheel in vinyl mode. 58. X/Y/BPM Indicates whether PARAMETER (#59) is displaying the BPM or effect parameters 59. PARAMETER Shows the current BPM count, or tempo of the music. Also shows the effects TIME and RATIO parameters while they are being adjusted. 60. TIME BAR Shows a proportionate visual representation of the time remaining or time elapsed. 61. TIME DISPLAY Displays the time of track(s) currently selected in increments of Minutes, Seconds, and Frames. 62. TEXT The text portion of the display (the bottom row) is mainly used to display MP3 file names or CD text information. It is also used to display various messages, such as effects parameter settings and more. See operating instructions for further explanation. 42. TRACK Indicates the current track selected or being played. 43. CD/MP3 Indicates whether the current disc is a standard audio disc or an MP3 disc. 44. PITCH VALUE Shows the percentage of the pitch slider. 45. LOCK - Shows when Pitch Lock and/or Key Lock are active. 46. SINGLE Controlled by the CTN/SGL button, this indicates when the unit is set to play just one track at a time. When this is not illuminated, the CD will play continuously through all tracks. 47. A.BPM Indicates when Auto BPM is active. To activate, press and hold the TAP button. 48. A.CUE Indicates when Auto Cue is active. To activate Auto Cue, press and hold the SGL/CTN button 49. LOOP Indicates when the CD is in loop mode. 50. RELOOP Indicates when there is a previously set loop, and that the loop is ready to be played again. 51. EFFECT Indicates when an effect is active. 52. PLAY Indicates when the unit is currently playing a CD. 53. HAND Indicates when the touch sensitive surface of the jog wheel is active. 54. PAUSE Indicates the unit is in CUE or PAUSE mode. 55. CUE Indicates the unit is at a cue point and is ready to play. 56. WHEEL INDICATOR This is a visual representation of a vinyl marker, which is traditionally used to mark the location of a certain sound or cue point on a vinyl record. Here, it indicates the play position, rotates during playback in either direction, and stops during cue or pause mode. It also indicates the speed of the forward and reverse search operation. 63. ELAPSED / TOTAL / REMAIN Indicates whether the time shown on the display refers to total remaining time or track remaining time. If either of these are not illuminated, this indicates elapsed track time.


Vinyl Mode In Vinyl Mode the inner jog wheel will simulate the behavior of a turntable. The top surface of the wheel is touch sensitive. Putting your hand on the wheel will stop playback, as it would on a vinyl record. Once playback is stopped, moving the wheel back and forth will create a scratching effect, like on an analog turntable. To activate Vinyl mode, press the VINYL button. Adjusting the Vinyl Start and Brake times You can adjust the start and brake times so it starts up like a turntable when pressing the PLAY/PAUSE button while in vinyl mode. Hold the VINYL button until is starts flashing Use the encoder labeled VINYL START (left) to adjust the start time. Simply turning the encoder will fine tune the start time. For a faster adjustment, push down on the encoder while turning the outer jog wheel. Use the right encoder, labeled VINYL BRAKE to adjust the brake time. Follow the same instructions as for the start time. Press the VINYL button to exit Touch Rewind With this feature active, every time you touch the top wheel surface, playback pause and return to the last cue point. Upon releasing the wheel, playback will resume from that cue point. This enables a quick and effective beat juggling effect with a single record or cd rather. To activate Touch Rewind mode, press the TOUCH REWIND button.

Try to place the unit as far as possible from TVs and tuners, as the unit may cause undesirable interference. The player will work normally when the unit is within 15 degrees of the vertical plane. If the unit is tilted excessively, discs may not load or unload properly, or playback may be adversely affected. The units LCD screen is designed to be clearly visible within the angles shown in the figure below. Place the unit so that the LCD screen is within this visual range for optimal clarity.


There are two ways to stop playback. Press the PLAY/PAUSE button during playback to pause at that point, or press the CUE button during playback to return to the position at which playback started.
Press the OPEN/CLOSE button to open or close the disc tray, or press the PLAY button and the disc tray will close automatically. If the tray is not closed after 60 seconds it will close automatically and enter pause mode. The disc tray cannot be opened during playback. This prevents playback from being interrupted if the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed accidentally. Stop playback by engaging cue or pause mode, and then press the OPEN/CLOSE button.


Cueing is the action of preparing tracks for playback. When the CUE button is pressed, playback returns to the cue point and enters pause mode. When the PLAY/PAUSE button is pressed during the cue mode, playback starts. Playback can also be resumed from cue mode by pressing the PLAY/PAUSE while holding the CUE button. This same action can be performed on the memory pads. Auto Cue The units Auto-Cue function will automatically set the first cue point at the beginning of each track. To return to that cue point, simply press the cue button. To save that cue point, hit save and press any pad. If the pad already has a cue point, it will be replaced. To turn Auto Cue on and off, hold down the SGL/CTN button. When AutoCue is on, the display will show A.Cue Setting Cue Points There are several ways to set and recall cue points, either in real-time to enhance a performance and create cool effects, or offline for fine adjustments. During playback, press any empty memory pad to set a cue point on the fly. The pads indicator will flash red while saving the cue point, and then turn to green to show it is ready for playback. Press it again to return to the cue point in real-time. Once the cue has been recalled, the indicator will turn red to show playback was started from that cue point. During playback in Vinyl mode, touch the platter and press the CUE button to set a new cue point. The unit will enter pause / cue mode. During pause, use the jog wheel to find the right cue point. In CD mode (vinyl off), the unit will repeat the same frame over and over, creating a stutter effect. This function is called Frame Search. While the CUE button is flashing, press it to select the cue point. In VINYL mode, the platter will act just like a turntable. HINT: Anytime the CUE button is flashing, it means it is ready to save a new cue point.

Hold a disc by its edges and place on the disc tray with the label side facing up. Do not touch the play surface (glossy side). CAUTION: Do not place foreign objects on the disc tray and do not place more than one disc on the tray at a time. Doing so may result in malfunction and damage of the unit. Do not push the disc tray in manually when the power is off, as this may also result in malfunction and damage.
Removing the disc from the drive before powering off will insure that the laser pick-up remains properly calibrated over time. Leaving a disc in the tray while powering off could also cause the jog wheel sensitivity to shift, as the same "memory" is shared between laser pick-up and jog wheel calibration data. See "Jog Wheel Sensitivity" on page XX for sensitivity adjustments.
CONNECTIONS Make sure that the unit and any other equipment in the signal chain are turned off prior to making any connections. Connect the RCA cable to the rear of the unit and to the input on your mixer. Connect the power cable to the rear of the unit and to a proper AC outlet. CAUTION Be sure to use the supplied cables. Using other types of cables may result in unit damage. To avoid severe damage to the unit, besure the power is OFF when making any connections.

Volume 1 > 2008

He gave us a rundown on all the projects hes got on deck from video games to car commercials as well as an insight into his massive gear collection and innovative production techniques. Because we want to bring you something useful in each issue of For Life, weve also got a rundown on one of our favorite cities, Seattle, Washington. Forget the hype about rain, coffee, and Microsoft theres lots more to this amazing city, especially from a DJs perspective. This all coincides with one of the best new gear lineups in Stanton history, spearheaded by the amazing new Stanton Control System 1 and brand-new DaScratch a compact and affordable DJ control surface that goes anywhere and controls just about any DJ or music production software youre likely to own. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the mag. Well see you in another six months or so. Sarah Lombard

> SC System

> Dascratch

Its no secret that pro DJs are going digital. And the best way to professionally control your digital DJ software is the flagship Stanton SC System 1.
Stantons latest compact control surface, DaScratch, is like nothing youve ever seen, or played. Compact enough for a gig bag, with control for days.
KRK Rokit 6s have become a desktop and personal studio classic. So how did we improve them? Hint: we looked to bananas for inspiration.

Gong Battle

Roc Raida has been inspiring millions since he won his first DJ battle years ago. These days, in addition being one of the busiest DJs in the world and recently earning theGrandmaster distinction to join the ranks of Flash, Kool Herc and others Roc has beenworking tirelessly to give back to the scene that made him famous. Specifically, hes been expanding the tradition of the DJ battle with his unique Gong Battle series, of which Stanton is proud to be the title sponsor. Put simply, if a DJ contestant in the Gong Battle is not cutting it, the crowd boos, and he or she gets gonged. Insert a healthy dose of comedy from the hosts, and fun is guaranteed. We spent a few minutes with the legend himself toget some of his thoughts on the project. What inspired youtostart the Gong Battle? I had the idea for a long time, and I just wanted to add some humor to the DJ battle scene, so I made the time to do it a few years ago.I just had to do it. How do you expect it to grow over the coming years? Ihope to take it to another level. As crazy as it sounds.I want to pitch it as a reality TV show so people can see, from start to finish, the work that goes into it from, both ends [as performers and event producers]. It really couldbe a funny hip hop DJ show. Do you have a favorite Gong Battle moment? I would have to say when we did the X-ecutioners/ Xmen show. Any other new projects on the horizon for you? Ihave an album calledCuttingComes toHarlem.Irecently shot a music video with Diamond and Sadat X calledAlottaPain, soIm just getting my album in motion now. Were also doing some X-ecutioners shows after the showcase at the battle, so im looking foward to that too! More info aboutRoc Raidas Gong Battleis available at

THE EMERALD CITY. Surrounded by water, trees and mountains, Seattle is a beautifully lush Northwestern city with an equally vibrant music scene. Known for its wet winters and gorgeous summers, this city lends itself to active summers and creatively productive winters there are probably more bedroom producers here per capita than any other city in the US. With a population of roughly 3.7 million, Sea-town is one of the most densely populated areas on the West Coast. And with companies like Starbucks, Microsoft, Nintendo, Amazon and Real Networks, the area is booming with young music, gaming and tech heads.From audio engineers and graphic designers, to computer programmers and chemists, people come from all over the world to Seattle, including DJs.
Known by most outsiders as a rock city, Seattles electronic music / DJ culture has remained in the post grunge shadow for well over a decade. Since the early 90s, Seattle has had a fairly large underground electronic music community, that over the years has evolved to become more club based. With over a dozen solid local promoters actively producing quality events, Seattles nightlife offers something for everyoneseven days a week. Many of these crews (including Fourthcity, SunTzu Sound, Uniting Souls, Innerflight, Decibel) have branched out to form music labels and download sites furthering Seattles presence across the globe as a vital hub for world class DJs, producers, promoters, clubs and festivals.

Welcome to Seattle

Trickwood Skate


Born in an unassuming location in the sleepy Seattle suburb of Kirkland, Trickwood Skate has fast become a hot spot with skaters, hipsters, sneaker heads, and those who just like the freshest shoes and streetwear on the planet. The store carries a wide range of limited-edition shoes and exclusive clothing lines that youre unlikely to find anywhere else. With a second location opening in Ballard, Trickwood is the easiest way to update your look before hitting the town.

Platinum Records

A fixture on the Seattle DJ scene for years, Platinum Records features a wide selection of vinyl, including Top 40, House, Breaks, Hip-Hop, Electro, Jungle, IDM, Chicago and rarities including old-school hip-hop, disco, and funk. In addition to carrying wide range of audio and DJ gear, Platinum also offers daily, weekly, and monthly rentals on turntables, CD players, mixers, sound systems, lighting and more. But probably the best part is that Platinum Records is completely staffed by experienced DJs who know what theyre doing whether youre in search of music, audio gear, or advice on the city.

higher, Platinum Records is the most popular record shop for DJs in the city (almost entirely vinyl and they carry Stanton gear as well). Right up the street youll find Zions Gate Records, which is a crate diggers paradise (massive used bins and rare vinyl). Like Easy Street, Sonic Boom carries a wide variety of new music on both vinyl and CD. Wall of Sound is strictly for the heads looking for obscure world beat, electronica, ambient, noise and experimental music. Top 5 Nightclubs Neumos is the largest, most predominant club on Capitol Hill, making it one of the most popular venues in the city. Though their programming is very diverse, the booking staff have exceptional taste in music and works closely with local promoters to bring in quality shows year round. Also on Capitol Hill, The War Room
is strictly a DJ-based dance club with a swank wood interior, artwork by Shepard Fairey, and a rooftop lounge thats a major hot spot all summer long. Nectar resides in Fremont, an area that was never really known for dance clubs or electronic music. However, over the past year, Nectar has become a premier venue for hip hop, underground dance, electro pop and some of the more adventurous forms of electronic music like dubstep. The Showbox has been a staple in the downtown Seattle nightclub scene for years, and they just recently opened an even larger venue about a mile down the street. Both venues hold well over 1,000 people, and bring in bigger dance acts ranging from Moby to Hot Chip to Infected Mushroom. The See Sound Lounge is Belltowns premier dance club, offering a tasteful selection of DJ nights focused around house music. Top 5 Music Promoters USC is one of the biggest forces in the city when it comes to booking larger names in electronic music (Paul Oakenfold, Sasha and Digweed, Teisto, etc). Decibel productions, whose four-day Decibel festival draws over 10,000 into the city for underground dance, experimental A/V performance, visual art and technology, is another standout. The Uniting Souls collective have been throwing the most successful house music events in the city for years, while their counterpart Innerflight continue to push the envelope with more aggressive forms of underground dance. Finally, Fourthcity run a label and one of the most respected hip hop nights in the city, Stop Biting. Top 5 Clothing Shops Goods on Capitol Hill has one of the best selections of upscale urban clothing in the city. Moksha in the University District, focuses on hand made clothing and local designers with a feel for urban fashion. Zebra Club on Capitol Hill and downtown offers hipster clothing, complete with neon hoodies, classic Adidas

The War Room


Previously a nondescript dance club, the War Room has been a major draw on Seattles Capitol Hill scene since it opened in 2005. Mixing elements of class (like original Shephard Fairey art) and comfort (like low-slung leather couches), this club has lots to offer, including a sizable dance floor in the main room and a very strong sound system. A six-night a week lineup ranging from hip-hop to dub to 80s to drum n bass keeps this club packed, almost without fail. Summer happy hours are also a big attraction, thanks to the War Rooms large rooftop deck.
and jeans so tight you might not be able to bend over. Trickwood, with locations in Kirkland and Ballard, is a premier skate shop and apparel store that offers brands like Vans, Rogue Status and 3Sixteen. With locations in the University District and Capitol Hill, Red Light offers and massive selection of both new and vintage clothing. Good, Cheap Eats For good eats that wont break the bank, Capitol Hill has some of the best restaurants in town. Than Brothers Pho is a favorite spot for those on the go with little money to spare. The Honey Hole has the best sandwiches in the city and you can grab a beer at their bar while you wait. The incredibly hip Boom Noodle on the Hill offers a unique blend of Asian infused noodle dishes at a very reasonable price. And if youre looking for a slice of Pizza, Mamas is the spot. Good, Not so Cheap Eats For those on the Hill with a little cheddar to spend, Osteria la Spiga is probably the best Italian restaurant in the entire city. Just down the street, Quinns Pub has some of the most elaborate pub fare youll find. Lastly, Caf Presse is one of Capitol Hills most popular restaurants, offering unique Parisian cuisine for those with a rich palate. Hip Hotels Like many cosmopolitan cities, Seattle is sprouting up new boutique hotels that offer reasonable rates and a hip environment. The Ace Hotel in Belltown was one of the first boutique hotels in the city and is still one of the most popular, mainly due to their incredibly reasonable rates ($100-$150 a night). Just down the street, the Hotel Max offers a bit more comfort and size. If you prefer the luxury and notoriety of The W Hotel, theyre located just down the street towards Pioneer Square.

The Decibel Festival

> SEAN HORTON, festival director When I first moved to Seattle from the Detroit area in 1996 I was impressed by peoples level of dedication and their ability to cooperate with one another on a small, grass roots scale. Though the community was just burgeoning at the time, it was filled with talented DJs, visual artists and promoters who were more concerned with throwing quality events than getting paid. Its that same homegrown attitude that inspired me to eventually found the Decibel Festival and production company, which just celebrated its five-year anniversary. As curator and president of the festival, it has been my goal to bring together local collectives, international talent and cutting edge technology to create a festival on par with Sonar, MUTEK and DEMF. Decibel has averaged over 10,000 attendees the past few years, and attracts people from all over the world, many of whom have never been to Seattle. Past festival highlights include luminaries like Richie Hawtin, Diplo, Carl Craig, Monolake, Glitch Mob, Speedy J, Fennesz, Modeselektor, Apparat, Deadmau5, Derrick May, Flying Lotus, Simian Mobile Disco and more. I honestly dont think Decibel Fest could work in any other city in the US and it has everything to do with Seattles landscape, culture, club life and dedication to the arts.

The 80s Boom Box

According to the authorities at Pocket Calculator Show, no one is exactly sure where the term boom box first came from. But as early as 1983, department stores like Sears and K-Mart began using the phrase in their catalogs. Websters dictionary defines the boom box as a large portable radio and often tape player with two attached speakers. Because the boom box was so instrumental in the late 70s / early 80s birth of hip hop, it was often derogatorily referred to as a ghetto blaster. The golden era of the boom box was the mid 1980s, when just about every electronics manufacturer in the world was making them with bells and whistles galore. Some of these had incredibly clean sound, with huge bass reponse. Others. well, at least they looked cool. To the left are some of the finest examples of the classic boom box. You can still pick up one of these beauties second-hand on craiglslist or on ebay. Then just find a cassette adaptor or, preferably, an Aux input to plug in your iPod. Theres still no cooler way to take your music mobile.
> HOUSE PARTIES, WWF RECORDS AND RED FILAS. ROBERT STRACHAN, aka DJ Jungleboy, is a fixture on the Miami DJ scene, as well as a Stanton technical support guru. Here he reflects on his roots.
WHEN DID YOU START DJING? I scratched my first record when I was 6 on my moms 3 in 1 stereo receiver. but I got my first real set when I was 14. WHO WAS THE FIRST DJ YOU SAW SPINNING, AND WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT HIM / HER AT THE TIME? I was too young to get into clubs so my first experience seeing a DJ was GQ from Juice in 1992.I was like Damn!!! Thats what I wanna do ! WHAT WAS THE FIRST RECORD YOU BOUGHT FOR THE PURPOSE OF DJING? I was huge wrestling fan. My first record was the WWF album released in 1985. WHAT WAS THE FIRST GIG OR PARTY YOU ROCKED? was my boys house party. And it looked just like the movie House Party. WHAT DID YOU WEAR AT THAT TIME? I was wearing black Cross Color pants, red Filas, and crazy colorful button downs. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST BAD DJ GIG? AND WHY DID IT GO BAD? Ohhh. That was Club Soda. I was an underground hip-hop head. Somebody should have told me to buy some top 40 records. I was playing Big L , Black Moon & Nine. Girls cant really drop it like its hot to Who got the Props. WHATS THE WORST / MOST EMBARRASSING RECORD YOU EVER PLAYED? Worst record: Brandys Full Moon. I swear people ran out of the club like roaches when the lights came on. Till this day I still have no idea why I got that response. WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE A DJ FOR LIFE? I was bred to be a DJ! My pops was a DJ (I didnt meet him unit I was 20. but he was DJ), plus I grew up shopping for records with my mom. Whenever it was when I realized that I could organize a playlist of songs in the same manner a poet can structure words and sentences to express him/her self. I would say at that moment I knew I was a dj for life.
