A Look At The PLX-1000’s.


PEE_PLX-1000_HERO_BLK

We’ve been paying close attention to the story of Pioneer’s new vinyl turntable that originally got leaked by QBert right after the NAMM convention in January, and today the details have dropped. The new PLX-1000 is a direct drive analog turntable that’s very similar in design to the Technics 1200s and many of the other super OEM models that have come after it. There’s a standard layout, long pitch fader with a range of tempo adjustments from ±8% and ±16% to ±50% and a reset switch, and a lighted speed guide on the platter.  A lot of DJs have speculated over the need and presence for additional I/O options besides the traditional RCA and power – and it looks like many might be disappointed as Pioneer has kept it completely analog in the unit, with just a single pair of phono outs, a ground cable attachment point, a Kensington lock slot, and a power supply. The lack of digital interface is something that we’ve heard from Pioneer is very much an intention to keep the sound quality very pure and analog – but we’re left wondering why easy connection for timecode users to a Pioneer certified mixer like the DJM-900 Nexus or SRT didn’t seem like the better play for the market.

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson revealed the design and brand experience consultancy priestmangoode’s new vision for the underground tube. Working with transport for London (TFL), the next generation of deep level trains will operate from 2022 at newly modified piccadilly, Bakerloo, central and Waterloo & city line stations for more than 40 years. The 250 built will be capable of fully automatic operation but will have a driver on board when first introduced. The designs reflects the contemporary culture and architectural landmarks of the city, whilst staying true to the british transport’s style heritage. The stations platforms feature a step-free walk-through system that increases commuters’ safety by opening seamlessly with the train’s doors. The carriages include wider entrances to facilitate quicker turnaround times and also an increased capacity. Inside, the cars have an updated air-cooler to provide a more fresh traveling experience and has digital screens to display live news feeds from the TFL. The interior uses natural finishes and materials to ensure a comfortable commute, and includes a color palette of charcoal, warm grey and oxblood that represents the underground DNA.

Shan Berries has once again hit the bay with another amazing song that is a tribute to the Niners. Although they have moved from Candlestick Park which was the home of the 49ers for over four decades, the team now plays its home games at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. With Shan’s amazing vocals, she explains to us that even though “they have traveled across the bay but as long as we’re together, theres no place they would rather play.” Check out her video below.

Belgian artist Raphael Vicenzi caught our eye recently with some of his amazing illustrations.  From the water colors, to the splashes of graffiti, the composition of his unique works of art are beautifully striking to say the least.  Check the method.

Pharrell Williams has reunited with electronic music masterminds Daft Punk and filmmaker edgar wright to present the music video for the track ‘gust of wind,’ off his latest album G I R L. Of course it wouldn’t be a pharrell masterpiece without him and daft punk challenging the laws of gravity; throughout the clip he walks through a vibrant forest with groups of interstellar gymnasts performing choreographed maneuvers while two enormous stone helmets hover around him before final takeoff.
