Friday Roundup
Four iPad Pros, a DJM-900 mixer, and not a single CDJ in sight? We’ve got that Juicy M performance for you in this week’s Friday Roundup, among other pieces from around the web.

First up, just to let you know that our Digital DJ Masterclass 2016 full online training programme is now on sale, there are limited places available so check out this video to get all the information on the course and how it can help you move your DJing to the next level.

In this week’s Friday Roundup, we’ve got a DJ routine that’s spreading like wildfire on Facebook (and there aren’t any decks in sight!), a piece on what it’s like to do a 10-hour set, and an article that asks if there’s such a thing as a “maximum rave age”.
