Brooklyn's steel-trap-minded DJ Never Forget has a new mix for your consideration, and it is titled "2nd Class: The Story Of A Laptop DJ". Below are a few words from the creator...
"Stuck somewhere between ipod and vinyl, lies the laptop dj. Neither a selector nor old school, the laptop dj languishes in a world of 0’s and 1’s, able to mix, but never taken seriously. While able to obtain certain status, there is a glass ceiling they must watch their wax brethren through as they obtain international fame and fortune. Currently, there is a raging debate regarding the laptop djs place in the world. They are consumed by their need to prove that they too have an identity all their own. No longer complacent, their voices are being raised."
