It’s totally possible to DJ with only your laptop keyboard. In this DJ Skill Sessions mix, Digital DJ Tips head honcho Phil Morse powers up his MacBook and Serato (with the Serato Play laptop DJing Expansion Pack) and shows how it’s done.
We’ve annotated the whole mix so you can see what Phil is doing. Despite keeping it nice and simple using just loops, volume, EQ and filters, Phil delivers a smooth house mix mashing eight tracks into twelve minutes.
