A fantastic performance by DJ Brace as he shows off his dexterity and timing between his twin turntables and mixing board. These days, the discs control digital sounds instead of analog ones – but he’s still got mad skills.

DJ Pizza Box

As a promotional stunt, Pizza Hut UK worked with printed electronics outfit Novalia to create a unique cardboard pizza box, which can be used to control smartphone DJ apps via Bluetooth. We wonder if it still works if you got cheese and tomato sauce on it.

If you thought that scratching tracks on turntables was old school, check out this 1991 footage of Latvian DJ Modris “Mr. Tape” Skaistkalns mixing tracks using a pair of tape decks as his medium. So when is reel-to-reel going to become a hipster trend?

Where it’s at, they’ve got two turntables and a microphone – and three orange tabby kittens who apparently have latent dj talent. We’re canine lovers but let’s face it – dogs couldn’t do this.
