Nick Hook / Hookemon / The Red Mamba on the DDJ-SX & Serato DJ

We spent a week with Nick Hook at Serato HQ recently, playing on controllers, talking shop and discussing the changes in technology in general. This video was a learning experience for all of us. We didn't want to show another turntablist routine for this controller - there's enough turntables and DMC champs for that :) Check out some great music from Nicks friends, hear the great Serato DJ FX powered by iZotope and watch the god, Hookules show you something. 

WIN SERATO DJ + SERATO VIDEO LICENSES

We've got another ten Serato DJ upgrade / Serato Video license bundles to give away too. Watch the video and tell us your favorite track, favorite mix, favorite ramen spot in your city. Whatever you feel really. Just show us some love and we'll pick ten people to love back. 

Peace.

My favorite part is the last sample:
"this should be played at high volume preferably in a residential area"
This sample source is still unknown, I guess.

very nice! using all 4 Virtual Decks along side Serato Remote....I'm very tempted in purchasing an iPad for the usability of Remote. Friends say that it's great app. Hmmmm, I wonder how 4 virtual decks would look running video.....?
DJT$ 7:37 PM - 13 August, 2013
That was the first time I have seen the IPad using Serato remotely. Very impressive. Looks wireless as well and quick response time.

That's next on my tech list!

Thanx, DJ T$
DJSpanx 7:37 PM - 13 August, 2013
Nice set...I love serato man! Things are so limitless.
Yorkshireman 7:38 PM - 13 August, 2013
As a vinyl & SL user I've always kind of ignored controllers, however the SSX has interested me and Nick killing it has won me over. I don't think their kids toys any more.

Ordering a tidy black 32gb iPad Mini solely for Serato Remote now.

Big up Serato! Long live the King!

Whaaaat. That was beautiful. I just got my DDJ-SX last week and I haven't stopped working (playing) with it to learn to flow of things with it. It's simply amazing. :D But this dude knows for sure how to rock that SX.

Work hard. Play harder.

The whole mix was tight. I liked it a lot, and I feel like the blending of the different genres was a great smash-up. I wanted to grab some glow sticks and start dancing........nicely done my friend nicely done.
Raw Beats 7:48 PM - 13 August, 2013
Nice technical performance indeed, really showing what Serato Remote can do paired with some badass hardware and a badass artist.

Seanboy 7:49 PM - 13 August, 2013
Cool mix especially the way he uses the ipad to trigger samples. What is the add-on needed to do this? I have the full Serato DJ version that came with my DDJ-SX but just purchased a Pioneer WeGo for ceremonies and didn't realize I would need to purchase another license to unlock the full version. I hope I can get a freebie here! Love the software, keep up the good work!!!!

Bad music doesn't sounds better when you put a lot of effects on it...

But I like the Pioneer DDJ SX too, because I have one.

I'm looking at getting my first controller (i've been djing on my computer and with a midi keyboard for about 6 mths) would you say the DDJ-SX is too much beef/too much to handle? If it is what controller would you recommend?
loomad 8:09 PM - 13 August, 2013
that DDJ SX is one hell of a machine...
recently I had a flashback through the release of Congo Natty's LP Jungle Revolution...
fell in love again and I am spinning that dubby jungle stuff like old times...with the new technology it just feels so much easier to do what I want to sound like...love it :-)
Gold Finger 8:10 PM - 13 August, 2013
DDJ-SX is superb, lovely FX. The Remote control is mind blowing. Serato keeps us updated. Bought DDJ-S1 buh I think ama go for DDJ_SX next. Nice Job

also house/dance/ electronic music takes 3 minutes to materialize and that was the timeframe of my whole video. I'm not a battle dj, and i am not trying to be one...

the dope thing about this controller to me is that its FUCKING FUN. it makes me wanna chill and experiment... see where it all leads....

its not 2 turntables and a mixer, so why treat it like one... thats the best part to me.

Looking forward to getting a DDJ-SX in the next couple of weeks!

Meanwhile, in the SF Bay Area, one of my favorite spots to eat at is right in the heart of the Silicon Valley in San Jose:

www.yelp.com

Awesome Korean joint that can serve RAMEN with soft tofu made to your choice of spoice!!!!

I love the many little appetizer side dishes that come with any traditional meal, carmelized potatoes, spicy kim chi cabbage, chilled bean sprouts, spiced cucumbers, it's all fantastic.

Service? Incredible, the family is really nice, I love being a regular here.

The coolest part of the whole experience?

COMPLIMENTARY ice cream at the end of your meal, red bean or green tea.

A perfect finish to an awesome Korean cuisine experience.

I managed to get ten dj's on the DDJSX ...and everyone is completely blown away including myself. Travelling the sth pacific has never been easier ... looking forward to unleashing some original video material next year with serato video and my sets.

4 years of love at first sight.
4 years 4 times (or more) a week with my SSL, ITCH & S-DJ
tryied to taste other softwares, but the only one is SERATO for me.
4 different controllers: DDJ-S1, VCi-300, DDJ-ERGO and my first love SL3 SOUNDCARD.
I can't play without my macbook and the best software i know: SERATO.

In Italy a lot of people ask me "what is this software? why don't you use T------R?"
My answer? eh eh eh...
"if you fall in love for a woman, the best life-partner you have, why have I change?"

Hope to stay with you for other XXX long long years, playing all around the world with Serato.

Thank you guys! <3

Jahsound 9:21 PM - 13 August, 2013
I love the many features the ddj-sx offers. I don't know if was the camera angle or shots but it looked like Nick was at war with the Pioneer ddj-sx. Mix sounds good.

Awesome display of the software and hardware integrations, I was especially impressed with the ability to add a tablet controller in addition to the dedicated deck. It's seamless, but definitely adds another dynamic to the mix. Would love to see the video capabilities demonstrated!

big up g... thank you.. super fun...

app is great.. really at the end of the day .. less laptop.. better for me... get that screen away from me.. people are wanting to come see the dj not a scren in front of your face.. how are they gonna come back and see you again if they just saw a giant apple sign logo..

so the ipad is hella fun as well as selecting tracks with sx...

So fresh! I'm convinced this will be the controller I buy! Love how easy he makes it look to mix and tweak the sound. The track selection was dope too! Best 3 min vid I've seen all day!!! BIG UP SERATO! Been using SSL since 2006!

My fave track/song at the moment is probably Breach - Jack (Codes Remix)

Hello to all fellow djs, especially to those who love this beautiful profession, because I want to tell you that the DDJ-SX is my favorite controller to mix video and audi, hope to win that license poderme that I do not have enough resources to acquire, and is very useful for me.

I love electronic music mixes especially House music ... theater and party in Bogota ...

God bless you, thanks

Love it
Djpushplay 9:57 PM - 13 August, 2013
Love this minimix, I'm not a huge fan of effects but I do love a good sample. However it's great seeing an example of what using effects can sound like and it work really well?
I guess they've come so far now that when used correctly they can really add to a set, as seen here.
Anyway the SX looks amazing! I'm using a multitude of 1200's and also a Mixtrack pro but on multi monitors using SSL and DDJ at the same time off my MBP.
After seeing this it's time to start selling some of my gear, and the beauty if it is, after a night at the club I can bring it home and it will replace my mixer as I can plug my 1200's in! I'd seen the iPad app too but didn't realise how good it looked, it fits in nice with iOS7.
Nick, to be honest I hadn't seen your stuff before, but I'm loving what you're doing, and will def keep an eye out for you travelling to Adelaide!
Keep up the good work team!

michoud 10:03 PM - 13 August, 2013
I always the like new technology, but it changes so quickly. By the time that you get accustomed to using hardware/software, there's a new version. It can be a real problem if you're playing out different locations and have no control over the equipment at the bar/club.

Don't get me wrong, I like the new technology, but I think that it often limits newer DJs without them realizing it. To fully use the equipment, you'll need to have (mostly) everything prepped... and stick to your set. I use to do 3-4 hour sets on the fly. I had a general idea of what I wanted to do, but wasn't confined by particular songs.

Maybe I'm just getting old.
jesuscusme 10:08 PM - 13 August, 2013
The song i like is Salva 'Drop That B'
and te mix was the 3rd transition.... My favourite ramen place is Nativa Bambu..... I try to do a similar mix... this one was too nice.... the ddj SX is all.... and Serato elevates to the next level the mixes...!!!!
ILIC 10:08 PM - 13 August, 2013
DDJ SX look nice, but i stil love my turntables with TT57SL :))

I'll always use vinyl turntables till I die, but this inspires me to push the envelope more and maybe invest in one of these one day just to see what happens! Love the mix, done very well!
NOSUGAR 10:09 PM - 13 August, 2013
Nice video, Serato is the leader of Ditigal DJ and VJ Software! Keep up the good work. And the Pioneer DDJ SX is one of the best Serato controllers at this moment.

Blowtorch 10:29 PM - 13 August, 2013
Very nice. I've been wanted to see how to utilize all the features more. My roomate owns one, I use scratch live with 2 tech 12s and a nexus 900, but I've been messing with his controller more when I get bored with the Tech 12s. This was a great demo to show off features you know the controller can do, but were not sure how to do it proper. I'm going to mess around with it more often now that I get the features better. I'm still not sold on the the effects of the controller, but I'll give them another shot.

What's up guys! First time Serato Dj user, and might I say it's a wonderful program! So far I've wowed many of my old skool DJ buddies with my ddj-sx controller. My current track, is a deep bassive electro house.
Barbaric by DJ Bam Bam. As for Ramen shops there's actually a wonderful spot here in the Windy City! Slurping turtle is a legit Japanese ramen shop, stop by if you're ever in the Chi!

I liked the transition into a new track at 1:20, right when you dropped, the Drop the B sample. What is the name of that track.

Just purchased the Denon MC2000 and I have enjoyed it so far. It's basic, but it's how I like it. And I can still hook up a turntable or CDJ. Now I just need the full version Serato DJ.

I run a DJ workshop in Australia for disengaged youth and use the DDJ SX as my main performance and teaching tool. The indigenous kids I have taught, have really caught the DJing bug and their potential to become DJ's after a couple of community events has really expanded. They are all in awe, not only of the technology and equipment but the potential to change their lives through music and DJing. I have recently brought another DDJ SX for the purpose of teaching, however we have need for another full Serato License with Video plugin. Having this resource would enable me to spread the good news of DJing and also change some lives. If we were one of the 10 successful applicants, I would send updates on the progress of participants to show case the influence of Serato and DJing.

Nick, I only inspire to be as skilled as you, great video. Yeah, I'm a novice on this type of mixing, seeing you bend that controller to mix like that is amazing to me. Keep it up!

Watching this video one thing is clear to me: No matter which equipment, music, style or technique you are using, Serato will always take you to the limit of your capabilities, to teach you in that point that actually, there's no limit....
Daniel Ayala 1:17 AM - 14 August, 2013
Once again a great video with great mix. Specially when it's get to the end. I really recommend serato products, great machines they make.
Im Itched 1:21 AM - 14 August, 2013
I have a vestax vci-400, I love how these controllers have the 4 channel capability. Nick, you did an amazing job showcasing the effects. Showing the innovation, that controllers aren't b.s. and can actually perform will hopefully show the turntable haters that there's potential in the controller world. I love the second to last track, and I know the iPad app works on wifi, but is your laptop setup to ad-hoc mode or are both laptop and iPad connected to a router in the building. Curios because some venues don't have wifi and I'm assuming it would work in ad-hoc. Getting one ordered as we speak. If there are any video licenses left, I could use one.

P.S. Know where I can get some original siren effects?

Loved it and love this controller. I have been a mobile DJ for 15 years with schools and weddings but am just getting into production and performance. I'm watching every video I can find. This guy was great and I love Serato! It's the cleanest looking professional DJ software on the market.
DJ Marcus K 1:40 AM - 14 August, 2013
Amazing video, Crazy transitions, I love DDJ-SX. I love seeing other dj's and see what they can do with there DDJ -SX. I love how the iPad can be intergraded with SX and Serato DJ
DJ Mike Torres 1:40 AM - 14 August, 2013
Drop that B to Work was fyah!! The whole mix is ridic!!! I just got a DDJ SX myself.. This is how I hope to utilize. I also like the Serato wireless on the IPad too!

this makes me wanna pack away my 1200s.


just hook em up to the sx so you can still rock that vinyl too.


Almost said the same thing , then caught myself. J/K!

Didn't really care for the SX at all ..... until this vid. Looks like something I may want to actually mess around with now. Liked the ease of use put into it. But I'm not packing up my techs and 57 any time soon ;)

Great work to the team for putting this together. Especially liked the second to last track (not sure what it is). The chill vibe was dope and the ending made me laugh too. Killed that mean mug vibe. Lol!

Oh yeah: PROPS on Serato Remote! Been using it on my iPad4 along side Lemur for my video control and it's gravy. Can't wait for the future updates/implementations for sure.
alejandre87 2:07 AM - 14 August, 2013
I can't wait to own a DDJ-SX (I own a ergo) and such a live mix though, good stuff! Diggin' the vibes!
DustinRuaDJ 2:12 AM - 14 August, 2013
VERY NICE SHOW!!!!
Kube is my favorite club in Madrid, the best Videomix are there... If I win the serato video license I wouldn´t have to use VirtualDj with my DDJ-SX for my videosessions... hahaha ;)
fabian m 2:16 AM - 14 August, 2013
I m starting as dj don have a name for it like the ddj-sx plus ipad remote
B.M.B 2:18 AM - 14 August, 2013
Love the mix and way serato remote works i love my controller but think upgrading to the one used in the video i enjoy mixing looking get started with the video plug in my favorite type music remixed dance with country rock vocals dubstep beats no recordings yet but do live mixes and a lot people love it fav mix rockstar party break by dj deville
lazemouf 2:18 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice little set . stayed busy but not to busy.
JaJa Mack 2:23 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice set, Hook. You hear so many people these days talk about how technology takes away from the artistry of DJing. In some cases, maybe many cases, that's true. But, as you can see in this video, Serato and the latest technology allow for MORE artistry when used correctly.
DjShawty 2:44 AM - 14 August, 2013
this mix brought tears to my was, beautiful just beautiful :)
davidROWDIE 2:49 AM - 14 August, 2013
Awesome to get a serato newsletter with my boy nickhook in it. Rad dude. Hope all is well.
dredd i knight 3:04 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nick,
That was sick!
No lie,
And here's why...
Flow, Layering and Rupture:
According to Tricia Rose
The three essential elements
in a hip hop structure.
You got it down like a king
Kept it natural,
And did your thing,
Kept the Fx in check
You get my respect.
peace.
FireDaemon 3:06 AM - 14 August, 2013
Work with ASAP Ferg Work is probably my favorite track in that mix. I loved it. The track was well put together as well. :)
KMXE 3:10 AM - 14 August, 2013
Crazy mix - DJing has come a looooong way from 2 turntables and a mixer!

I think my favorite track right now is

SUCH A BANGER!
KevJonz 3:29 AM - 14 August, 2013
I love my V7 and Twitch but am ready ot grab a ddj-sx. The age of controller is here to stay. Regardless if you are in PA or Germany Serato is on TOP!
DJ FAROFA 3:32 AM - 14 August, 2013
Cara, muito bom! Vocês por acaso não sortearia o controlador, pois já comprei o serato dj+video só falta a DDJ-SX pra mim ficar completo. Por enquanto vou me contentando com minha MIXDECK UNIVERSAL+ SERATO DJ+VIDEO. Um abraço a todos.

Dude, very good! You would not happen to sortearia the controller, because I bought the serato dj + video just missing the DDJ-SX me stay full. For now I'll be content with my MIXDECK UNIVERSAL DJ + + SERATO VIDEO. A hug to everyone.
elvisdj 3:40 AM - 14 August, 2013
El mejor controlador DDJ-SX sin duda acompañado del mejor software SERATO DJ me gustaría como a muchos ganarme una licencia para usar el vídeo, pero bueno a ver quienes son los afortunados saludos desde el centro de sudamerica Bolivia Bye!!
JC DJ315 3:48 AM - 14 August, 2013
Been DJ'in for more than 20years. The partnership & collaboration on the DDJ-SX with Serato is monumental. Nick's demo is pretty cool and he shows off the capabilities, and there's enough examples for others to mix in with their own creativity. Pretty cool.
djdoublejayy 4:02 AM - 14 August, 2013
Clean Set
Percivale 4:12 AM - 14 August, 2013
DDJ-SX is my first ever DJ Controller-Mixer and I hope it will last me a long long time. I look forward to more functions and updates from Serato Team. Go Serato Go! :D
emmitelliott 4:26 AM - 14 August, 2013
That was a dope mix. I love the use of the iPad with DDJ-SX. Very clean mix. Very effortlessly done. Right now I am still feeling Pizza Guy by Touch Sensitive, Fav mix is live at the Sex Machine by J-Rocc, Boom Noodle (Seattle) and I like Toast.
WYFDJvic 4:38 AM - 14 August, 2013
Haha this video makes me wish I had a SX!
But my favorite part was around 2:30, where you could really see all the technology being used on a not to simple, not too complicate controller and iPad app.

I mean it just really shows how serato as a company and group of djs is evolving WITH djs, but isn't forgetting their earlier roots which is a simple software for turntabist. Sure the competition is all about controllers and software and crazy affects, mixers,samples, bla bla bla. Serato made all of that, while STILL keeping their good name in turntables.

So congrats to you serato for keeping both modern dj controllers and turntables in mind.
Dj Olivo 4:40 AM - 14 August, 2013
I love all the mix it was different i want to hear more Serato is the number one software
AlexTheDude 4:41 AM - 14 August, 2013
Love Yawl @ serato.

There's this nice Cantonese place in LA that you guys should check out if you're ever in LA. It's on Crenshaw. Some real chinese food. "Kim's Restaurant". Food is dope as hell.

Oh and tell Nick that was awesome.

Peace.
wildbill1973 4:50 AM - 14 August, 2013
EXCELLENTTT!!!!!!! vid love serato dj
djJASMAN 5:03 AM - 14 August, 2013
Sick! Still rocking the Serato Itch so a hook up for an upgrade would also be SICK!!!!!!!!!!!
djtheo2k 5:06 AM - 14 August, 2013
Dope Mix! I love the DDJ-SX. ASAP rocks
ozlizard 5:10 AM - 14 August, 2013
Since you asked, Hongo Tei in Chikusa, Nagoya is my fave ramen shop.
The Soleshaker 5:16 AM - 14 August, 2013
Although I play deep house not your genre of music and a totally different style, man you are a genius and master craftsman, I do not recognize the tunes or samples but quality it is. Peace and lol from Israel 😊
DJ O. Sergio 5:24 AM - 14 August, 2013
An exceptional display of skill and mastery of the
DDJ-SX and Serato software.

Sergio
Monro3 5:27 AM - 14 August, 2013
Very good video/demo. Now I am wanting an iPad to use that new software you released.

Not a ramen spot. But I do like F3 in Sausalito, Ca. Good burgers!
beatboxmd 5:39 AM - 14 August, 2013
Cool mix. He makes it look easy and effortless.

I need to practice more with my mixtrack pro and maybe someday (if I get lucky), I'll get to his level of controllerism.

I dig Tadakuma's ramen here in Davao City, Philippines.

Have a nice day!
Reyiyo 5:46 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice video. Something different from everything else I've seen! I'm having a blast with this DDJ-SX. Always coming up with new combinations. I'd love to see how Serato Video would sync with the already incredible Serato DJ!
goldRAS 5:47 AM - 14 August, 2013
Just love what can be done with Serato .... Awsome
A_Jack 5:48 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice vid!
DJ Squirt1 5:55 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nick Hook is off the chain! I love what he has done. My favorite track was the "Rock That B" loop.
DJ Papi Of ATL 6:06 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice awesome
PGMEDIA 6:12 AM - 14 August, 2013
Yeah amazing tool to see him integrate the IPAD. Serious sounds! and no ear phones! ROCKING AWESOME!
DJ de Nîmes 6:15 AM - 14 August, 2013
Very inspiring video! It brings out the best in you and motivates you to reach even higher and getting everything out of this nice 'peace' :-) of equipment.

Hard to choose, here in Belgium the Tomorrowland-circus has just passed ;-) but
Call me maybe (Milkman Remix) is something funny to start the day with!

Cheers!
DjJorge Santana 6:36 AM - 14 August, 2013
This is the reason why I upgraded to the DDJ-SX from the NS6. The capabilities on the DDJ-SX are just endless! I Love it!
Cardiac 6:36 AM - 14 August, 2013
Been a Torq man since it hit the streets. Others around with Serato gave me no real reason to let go. The DDJ-SX is on my to do list, in fact it's at the TOP! I 'll be a Serato fan now. The SX is off the chain.
bobaphet 6:47 AM - 14 August, 2013
Red cups and sweaty bodies everywhere..hands in the air like we don't care..cause we came to have so much fun now ..bet somebody~~::::::: wait a minute:::: uhh, eat at Katanaya Ramen in San Francisco. :)
DJ ILLEE 7:24 AM - 14 August, 2013
He kind of looks like Andy dick. Lol not my style but the mixes are still dope.
DJ_RishSA 7:28 AM - 14 August, 2013
daaaaaamn this whole mix is insane!!!
Favorite Song: Work (A.S.A.P)

the mix of "Work and Drop That" crazy crazy crazy. . . .

Nice 1
higherbeats 7:37 AM - 14 August, 2013
As a vinyl & timecode SL user I ignored controllers for some time, but the SSX has interested me and Nick killing it has won me over.

might order an iPad Mini solely for Serato Remote now.

Big upz Serato!
xJONEZx 7:56 AM - 14 August, 2013
Its not one of the best but one of the worst Ramen places in the world is located in Bangor North Wales & called Noodle 1. Bunch of hipster slackers who are all attitude & produce sloppy dishes.

Avoid at ALL costs !
Golden Wing 8:26 AM - 14 August, 2013
killa mix
Fusiondj 9:02 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice Mix and since I live in Japan, I'm in the home of Ramen. I have too many Ramen shops to name that are my favorite. Again, nice mix Nick.
Dan_Davies 9:08 AM - 14 August, 2013
I've gotta say Mammoth by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike is my favourite track. It just makes you feel like you can do anything! Also any mix Diplo drops is great, his radio 1 xtra show is keeping the moombahton scene alive in my opinion.
DJ RileyJM 9:09 AM - 14 August, 2013
Dope location for the video shoot, Rockin that hair style hard aswel.
Iv been looking into getting Serato Video for the past 6 months, to use on stage at hip hop concerts.
If i dont win it, ill be buying it, hopefully within the next 6 months
Spiza 9:12 AM - 14 August, 2013
Nice mix Nick. I am currently on other DJ software but looking into switch to Serato.
skrapple 9:16 AM - 14 August, 2013
Love everything you guys make, cool vid, I currently only own scratch with the bridge, as I am an abelton user, would love 2 see what I could up with using this setup or the video capabilities <3 all your stuff..
DJ J@rke 9:17 AM - 14 August, 2013
Hey I bought the nice DDJ-SX Because I mix Videomegamixes and would like to do it live...
To my big disepointment ther was no Serato-video
in the package. It was only for the first 10.000 units :(

I have made some videomixes on pc but hope to get one of these free give aways, so I can begin to mix live q;O)

This is some of my work..

Watchvimeo.com

Keep the beat running..

DJ J@rke
andyourmagicharmonic 9:17 AM - 14 August, 2013
Don't get me wrong - I've been a serato user for several years now - and an advocate of music technology as a positive creative force for longer - but how does this footage really showcase the technology here?
If you know the tracks you might have some idea of what's happening - but if you really want users to understand the potential of what the kit can do you're also gonna need another video where he actually explains what he's doing. Otherwise it looks a bit like a carefully rehearsed dance routine... ;-)
JDTheDJ 9:27 AM - 14 August, 2013
Great demo! Lets see more video mixi g - I love video mixing and would live to win :-)
TYRONEPAULSEN 9:46 AM - 14 August, 2013
Awesome vid and demo & showing the capabilities of the SX but most importantly the easy usage of the Remote. Looks better on an iPad Mini.
Dig the A$ap track.
I use SL on my SL3 & DJ on my DDJ-S1 & i have stopped using my Dicers because of it.
DjAle.com 9:53 AM - 14 August, 2013
SWEET!!!!
TheLaZyEyedSniper 10:11 AM - 14 August, 2013
I particularly liked Nick's off-center parting, not center enough to be a center parting, but not side enough to be a side parting. Very much like like his mix, off center / left side.
V/LJ WipeX 10:18 AM - 14 August, 2013
The Music was not my genre, but the performance is awesome!

*share the love* :D
DJ_Unthinkable 10:20 AM - 14 August, 2013
This looks to be one of the best all in one MIDI controllers on the market. At an excellent price and with superior software, the DDJ-SX is perfect. I am going to purchase a Mixtrack Pro this week and hope I can win to get Serato DJ for it! By the way, that was an superb mix Nick! Don't listen to all of these people who say you are using too many effects! That's what makes you unique as a DJ! Well good luck to everyone and keep spinning! Oh, and my favorite song right now is Slot Machine by Swisher!
DJ Art Terrell 10:22 AM - 14 August, 2013
Great Mix Nick. ASAP Work s nice.
Dj Rigo 10:30 AM - 14 August, 2013
Sweet mix! Awesome gear! Nice hair! What more can you ask for? I wanna win!
Mister Ka 10:35 AM - 14 August, 2013
My favorite track is "Viaje Astral" because is mine (original track): soundcloud.com
My favorite mix is "Viaje Astral - Remix" for the same reason: soundcloud.com
My favorite ramen spot is "Hits and Mix by Mister Ka" my own radio online: hits-and-mix-by-mister-ka.playtheradio.com
-All of this shows the great love I have for music, the hard work I do for this and I think I deserve a Serato license. Everything I have accomplished almost without a dollar in the bag and with a disability from birth. You need a bigger demonstration of love?
Peace and take the right decision; my faith is huge.
djfrujay 11:25 AM - 14 August, 2013
This is a great mix I want the upgrade to serato dj!
djArley 11:37 AM - 14 August, 2013
Super dope mix. The use of effects really made for a tight blend. Huge ups guys. The mix, the product, everything.
Donny Furlong 11:37 AM - 14 August, 2013
3 of my favorite tracks right now are Animals by Martin Garrix. Carnage's remix of Hardwells Spaceman. And Martin Solveig's Hey Now.
i would love to win the upgrade
Dj Dord 11:42 AM - 14 August, 2013
My favorite track would have to be Freeloader by Dave Darell and my favourite mix is "SLEEPER Mixing 18 Songs in 10 Minutes (Counting Cavemen Preview)" also I don't think my town has a ramen spot It's a very small town
Mackie Da Jockey 11:43 AM - 14 August, 2013
Great Job! thombs up to you guys there!!!

Love every bit of what you guys are doing. its just awesome
Andi Crampton 11:48 AM - 14 August, 2013

Philip Ray 1:11 PM - 14 August, 2013
Nice mix! I love the way the DDJ works and using the iPad to compliment it seems dope! Hope to see more tech come out soon!
michaelbarco 1:25 PM - 14 August, 2013
I think Nick Hook is good, but I've heard him do better. I think the folks at Serato had him under pressure
hally_b18 1:29 PM - 14 August, 2013
absolutely love the DDJ-SX, i bought two! yes im mad!

really good mix, good demonstration of all the cool features within the controller.

so good infact im about to get off this blog and practice some more!

ps. The serato video plugin would complete me.


<3 Serato!
deejay alfa kenya 1:34 PM - 14 August, 2013

christos 2:28 PM - 14 August, 2013
Absolutely amazing technologies put into place here- my only negative is : the choice in style of music to demonstrate with > really is hideous
kaboomer 2:41 PM - 14 August, 2013
Excellent skillz dude ! I like the echo fades ! I just got my Twitch controller and I'm trying to convert my old 1200 mkll ways !!! Controllers are def tough to master but your little mash was very clean and energetic ! 2 thumbs up !
pkPUNCH 3:27 PM - 14 August, 2013
really i just want some pho
nutzdog 3:47 PM - 14 August, 2013
I love bits of vinyl and sticky tape. I also love not having to carry vinyls and sticky tape to festies so yeah for serato people . Ps vinyl is still better.:)
Redi2roc 3:54 PM - 14 August, 2013
nice set and setup i love the new serato app for ipad such a game changer!
tuneturner 3:57 PM - 14 August, 2013
Great Vid. I bought the DDJ-SX just to use Serato. I love it. I have tried all the software along the way and Serato has taken me back to my DJ roots and made me better. In the video I like the use of the Remote and seeing it used this way I am going to purchase the App for my iPad right away. Thanks Serato!!
Rafael-Br 3:58 PM - 14 August, 2013
Great video demonstrates the altissimo accuracy and quality of the software ... low-latency, and a creative DJ has no limits with the use of Serato ...
Without doubt the best dj software worldwide, with the new DDJ Sx, is the best combination these days ...
One day I will have this software...
john parker 3:59 PM - 14 August, 2013
What can I say about the ddj sx and serato dj that hasn't already been said above? How about a crossfader that dosn't work properly, constant background noise, usb dropouts, the fact its not compatible with Amd chips, even with Intel chips there are still issues, it doesn't like Windows 8 in fact just buy a mac book pro! I am sick of seeing videos where everything works intuitively where in reality the whole platform is totally unreliable in my opinion. Pioneer and serato must try harder
Peng 3:59 PM - 14 August, 2013
D.A.N.C.E - justice (diplo remix)
I love to play this track on my DDJ SX. Using the slicer mode, makes ♫Do the D-A-N-C-E
1, 2, 3, 4, fight
Stick to the B-E-A-T
Get ready to ignite♫ makes the song much sicker.
Serato Dj software is making everyone's DJ performance different to others. As a newbie, im very comfortable using the serato dj software it is user friendly and evrytime i play my tracks it makes me feel like im djing for over 20yrs already because of the advance features of this product. I love you serato for making my performance to the next level.

These Controllers Are So Damn Convenient. Now only if they could bake Serato inside no computer or Ipad needed just a Hard drive.
DjCRich 5:09 PM - 14 August, 2013
The best part of the video was the whole video because i love mixing/taking a class on it and how he was sampling and mixing live shows great skill that i must have...the way he looped each track and cued in samples taking them in and out.catching different phares/instruments of the track adding effects was the Truth.....made it look like a walk in the park..the drop-ins and out was clean/i also like how all of the effects are accessible at your finger tips also..makes the mixing easier....Thanks for the Motivation
DjMeeks253 5:13 PM - 14 August, 2013
Not only did "The Red Mamba," use all of the features a that come with the Pioneer DDJ-SX. But he also incorporated the new serato Dj app for the iPad. I really enjoyed this short mix, I liked how he used very different genres in music to show his versatility. All in all a great performance video of the Pioneer DDJ-SX.
cubaton3 5:20 PM - 14 August, 2013
Awesome, DDJ-SX is pretty good, has a whole bunch of features, I loved that he mixed various genres, I loved Drop that B !, this controller is pretty good I love it, I also love that he mixed without headphones, thats pretty awesome, me myself I can't be mixing without a pare of headphones, he used the remote at the beginning to, loving this, I love Serato DJ, nothing else can be compared with it, I wish I could use Serato DJ right now but my trial version is over. This is just great.
OhitsRAY-RAY 6:00 PM - 14 August, 2013
Probably One of the single best Purchases I made for my Set-up......PIONEER.........DDJ-SX.............and now its time to purchase the App......Nik Hook amazing mini mix!!!!
OfficialBassick 6:04 PM - 14 August, 2013
good routine ... shows how you can manipulate and bootleg LIVE. well done. im thinking of implementing an ipad into my mix as well, the reviews on the software have been pretty stellar thus far.
DJ HANGLOOSE 6:15 PM - 14 August, 2013
Great video showing Serato Remote+Serato DJ in action. Good set with nice loops and selection of effects. I can't wait to see a video with the new NS7 MK II. Make it happen Serato.
Dj Supermari0 6:17 PM - 14 August, 2013
I love the serato dj with my sx. im using a dell i5 pc the video dont work on me. So I have to play on a non video club and bars. Lesser the talent fee.

hackattack 7:39 PM - 14 August, 2013
I'm an up and coming dj and I'm currently using virtual dj. I've used serato on one of my boys' setups and all I can say is I like it so much more. Better layout, better interaction, everything. I'd love to get that license. My favorite track has gotta be shave it by zedd. Great track
1Freshdj 8:03 PM - 14 August, 2013

An artist painting a Picasso with the DDJ-SX & Serato DJ. Tight Mix using all the tools!
DJ-SHUFFLE 8:07 PM - 14 August, 2013
Nice video!! Serato make only the best with the best :)
DJ Dippa {NYC} 8:18 PM - 14 August, 2013
Only hints at how much you can do with the DDJ-SX & Serato DJ.

4 Tracks, professional mixer, can hook up an iPad, pull the volume and echo out verses, loop & rolls, sample and drop songs in with the hot cue beat pads (check out track 4 ~2:23), and so much more.

Had the piece and the program since it came out and haven't looked back. Been too busy with all the gigs I'm getting and recording mixes/new tracks to put online - all right through Serato DJ.

Do yourself a favor and get one. You'll be amazed at what you can do and how much fun it is. A bunch of my turntablist buddies already picked up one for themselves.
DJ Meek 8:19 PM - 14 August, 2013
Tight mix...keep dat bitch rockin. lol Great way to showcase this rig. And for you overly critical MFs, let's see you put together a ONE minute mix that sounds this good. Haters. Go practice & get ya weight up bitches.
Dj_ologist 8:22 PM - 14 August, 2013
His mix was crazy beats going off everywhere and using the iPad for samples wow look how far DJ tools gone.
DJ L'G'N'D 9:20 PM - 14 August, 2013
sweet and I too would love to see a dj using this with music other than hip hop and samples!!

Bonjour,

if you are passing on Paris on day, I suggest you to go for a ride in the 13th district in quartier chinois beside the University of Paris 1 for the ramen, chill near the Canal Saint Martin's shores to digest and party hard on a pumpy new disco set in Wanderlust or go to Paris Social Club for a Leftfield/Hip Hop set to relax.

e1Borikua 3:04 PM - 15 August, 2013
Awesome use of the four tracks, plus the add-ons! the use of the iPad is mind blogging.
OGSteve 3:09 PM - 15 August, 2013
Serato DJ is fire. and i'm waiting on my DDJ in the mail right now. still keeping my NS7 though. and that Ferg track smashes any club, any scene, any genre. every DJ should have some Ferg in their mix if they keep up with the hype. One love from the #OG fwm. cause i'll forever be on team Serato..

CESAR CRUZATTY 4:44 PM - 15 August, 2013
Hola amigos, soy nuevo en esto, me apasiona el ser DJ... LLevo más de un año invitado a fiestas, reuniones familiares y creánme que ha sido un giro maravilloso en mi vida. Disfruto hacerlo y veo que Nick también lo hace en esta corta pero muy instructiva sesión... Tengo una TRAKTOR MIXTRAPRO con la que estoy enfrentando todo tipo de generos y me apunto a que complementando con lo que hace Nick yo tengo futuro :)... Serato he querido probarlo honestamente, pero no me da la chance de hacerlo con videos y realmente me gustaría ganarme esta licencia para hacerlo y dedicarme a trabajar con Videos en SERATO VIDEO, porque con MP3 es una BACANADA... Gracias y una buena mezcla pa´todos...
djjungle 5:23 PM - 15 August, 2013

Djnemeses09 6:50 PM - 15 August, 2013
The whole video was great. I can't say a favorite part of the mix cause I liked it all. he shows how good the ddj-sx really is. I have a long way to go to get on that level. Good Shit also Bokuchoi Ramen is a good spot in Tampa lol
DJCeeFour 11:20 PM - 15 August, 2013
whoa! this is not "skill" it's a gift! just the sort of inspiration I need b4 weekend gigs! thank you Serato and NICK HOOK - u have a new stalker - lol!
mrradio92071 11:58 PM - 15 August, 2013
LOVE THE DDJ-SX, And as the song says "Rock That Bitch"
deejayradar 12:50 AM - 16 August, 2013
this set was dope. really good use of all the features and serato remote. if this isnt your cup of tea thats fine, but give respect where respect is due its easy to watch a comment and post rants but actually putting a 3 minute set together with the samples and tracks to showcase the tech is easier said than done!! mad respect to nick.
dj taz 1:05 AM - 16 August, 2013
wow luv the video, I was about to give up on the DDJ-SX and get the Numark NS7 II what the heck i'll get that one too when it finally comes out.
RaveNRage 3:14 AM - 16 August, 2013
i love you serato!!!
Caleb T 9:13 AM - 16 August, 2013
Dope!!! I def. learn something new every time I check out this site. Glad I chose Serato!!!
Mark Davies 9:17 AM - 16 August, 2013
My favourite decks are the DDJ-SX. I LOVE that it's native to Serato and the performance pads add some real flare to a set, and let's be honest it's a damn sexy controller! Pioneer did a great job on it and it's just got so much to offer. I love it.
Dj Dave Tintin Aitken 11:03 AM - 16 August, 2013
Purchased the DDJ-SX two weeks ago and it has been such a step up in performance and Sound Quality over my old NI setup.
Had some doubts initially about Serato software but they are well gone. The interface grows on you and it didn't take me long to realise that all the "window dressing" of other products is completely pointless.
Keep it simple, plain and to the point Serato. Good Job
Justin Jackson 2:42 PM - 16 August, 2013
That is seriously wicked! Putting it to great use. Love that he used a iPad with it.

Anton Glambb 7:14 AM - 17 August, 2013
Yeah Nick!!

Hook line and killin it!

Sending respect from Hawaii hit me up if you come out this way, make me want to get one of those controllers, but that's the point right?

Keep it up!

Ruddaz 8:18 AM - 17 August, 2013
Why some of the negativity from people on here???

I have been a Dj for 20 years now, starting on crappy KAM decks until I could afford a pair of Vestax PDX-2000's, and I really embraced the technology which we had available at the time.

Then CDJ's made an appearance, so once I'd accepted the fact this was the way technology was going, I made the move over using both Vinyl and CD until the Turntable started to become a minority in most clubs/venues.

My current set up is a pair of CDJ-2000's and a DDJ-SX, and I'm loving it. I've has an S2 and S4, and the SX is by far the better controller.

So many Dj's get onto these forums shouting that the laptop Dj is not a proper Dj and to some level I agree. I think that if you do know how to actually mix, you get so much more out of the technical side of Digital Djing.

I do also know that most Dj's I know and have played along side (including famous Dj's) that use CDJ Technology set the BPM on the Digital Display and then make minor adjustments to perfect the mix.

What's the difference there to Sync Mixing?????

Either way, I can only show Serato DJ including the DDJ-SX a whole lotta love, this controller is a game changer in the Digital DJ world, a I welcome more from Serato, Well done you!!!
barry b 9:55 AM - 17 August, 2013
I Scratch live with SL3 and ddj sx .been serato through and through for about 6 years now maybe more. love the ease of connecting up my ddj sx in a venue and what it can do. its always great to watch videos like this ,even though it may not be the kind of stuff i play out, as its all about having fun and trying new tricks .
Great video my fav tune was WORK ... loved the mix with Drop that B with turnace edit
nick hook .... was of the hook !!!

Phill Black 11:56 PM - 17 August, 2013
I really liked the set i thought it was pretty good, myu favorit part was 1:20 minutes in till 2mins i realy like the echo and how he mixed the ladys voice in to it. I just starting to Dj and i like seeing other peoples work and trying to find my own flow so keep it up man id like to hear more of you.
Jamellow54@yahoo.com 3:34 AM - 18 August, 2013
That was dope for 3 minutes duke. Love to hear you burn for like an hour, see what it do. I'm fornicating up mixes on Serato Dj. Neva used that piece of equipment DDj-SX looks funky doe. I didn't recognize any tunes, Kinda seamless or maybe I'm just old. Rock'n with no headphones ? not there yet. Just moved to Seattle and my new shit is Vietnamese food Whoa!
Peace
DJ Jayc 3:46 AM - 18 August, 2013
That was freaking Dope ! Just can't imagine how it will be when my sixty two z arrive in another weeks.. So Imma gonna imagine MIDI sss + VIDEO sss + Scratches + Hip Hop !!! Awesome playback ! Throw me that 2 shot oh pls !!!
KevJonz 3:51 PM - 18 August, 2013
This video inspires me to record my own. Serato and its partners do a great job bringing all the peices together. I am setting up the camera lights and the system as we spike.

Lets make it happen. I would love to add video to the video. Throw and show the love.
djslappz 8:04 PM - 18 August, 2013

yeah ..it might be technically good ..

But IMAGINE you have to listen to that crap all night.. loops and samples..
This aint gonna win me no Video serato ... i know ;}


but next time invite someone that does rocks with anything but rap, samples and loops PLEASE ..


your not a true DJ If you only like one kind of music and you hate on other people for the kind of music they play. its about the skill and creativity. apparently you cant see that. A true DJ is open to all kinds of music and doesnt complain. if you only like one genre of music and hate rap then maybe you should quit, sell your equipment, and take up a different hobby lol
Sprstix 1:25 AM - 19 August, 2013
Awesome, Love the fact that you can now use video as well! Serato and Pioneer, looking forward to using it!
DJ hironux 1:31 AM - 19 August, 2013
Yes! a great performance.

BTW, a best RAMEN place in Tokyo,
Just visit at Kiraku at Shibuya-dogenzaka.

My favorite is "Moyashi-Men" !

willbesmooth2 11:28 PM - 20 August, 2013
Sweet Mix!! I've been rockin a DDJ S1 for the last year and a half and I love it but I will admit I am a little jealous of the ease of all the new features and especially the 4 decks on the DDJ SX but with Serato DJ 1.3 and Serato Video I'm still lovin my controller!! Keep up the good work guys!!!
savor 11:51 PM - 20 August, 2013
Great performance.
SUPER DJ BOUNCE 9:58 AM - 21 August, 2013
I LOVE THIS CONTROLLER! ITS THE BEST ON THE MARKET! SUPER PRO READY! THE PLATTERS ARE SO BUTTER!!! XLR OUTS AMAZING!AND the PADS are So Much FUn. I hope im lucky enough to win a video license..It would be wicked to start SPINING videos into my sets!! The Karma Gods are with me.. No good ramen spots in my town BUT THE MEXICAN FOOD IS OFF THE HOOK!! If your ever out to San Diego stop at EL ZARAPE! Your stomach will thank you!
ewrparties 9:55 PM - 21 August, 2013
I love the video, not my type of music but i respect the skills. I was using Virtual DJ, stepped up and bought a DDJ-S1 to test out Serato. Now I'm kicking myself for not buying the SX. All I need now is the video licenses to be back in the game.
rhey 5:33 AM - 22 August, 2013
i love ddj sx my controller
djautoMATTic 9:47 PM - 23 August, 2013
NICELY DONE! Can't wait to step up to VIDEO!
deejayjulz 10:07 PM - 23 August, 2013
I'm thinking i might buy this controller, im a turntable dj and embrace new technology... and after seeing this video im willing to give it a try..
rhey 10:31 PM - 23 August, 2013
i love this kind of controller its cool ddj sx but i need more to step up or plug in video
ceekay x 8:59 PM - 28 August, 2013

deejayjulz 12:52 AM - 30 August, 2013
I haven't tried that video mixing yet but it sure look like fun
DJ Birgy 6:30 PM - 30 August, 2013
Awesome Set! Cant wait to compare the DDJ-SX to the NS7 mk II. I made the transition to Video about 2 years ago and I wish I did it sooner. Any DJ that has not yet, SHOULD! Definitely have to pick one of these up in the near future.
DJ Birgy 6:32 PM - 30 August, 2013
Currently using Serato Scratch Live guess I have to go to Serato DJ to use this controller.
MrVanDigital 1:18 PM - 5 October, 2013
Nice skills, Nick. I've been mixing with the DDJ-SX for over a year now and although there are a few things I prefer on the Traktor S4 (e.g. they have a wicked gate efx function), I still think it's the best combination out there.

Here's a mix I put together (deep electronic) using Serato and the DDJ-SX:

DJ Jayc 8:06 PM - 9 October, 2013
Honestly, sorry to say but Serato is getting better but rane is getting worst... speechless...
Could you imagine whad Im sayin...
DJ Wizard Sleeve 2:29 PM - 31 December, 2013
Technically that was great - but man were those tracks dull.

Favourite track/mix? - out of those ones? I really couldn't say...

Favourite ramen spot?

These are apparently the top 10: www.spot.ph

Love my SX which I had more time to use it, and could use it better than i do lol.
