Want a proper bedroom DJ booth but not wanting to pay the pretty penny? DJ Puzzle has a solution: build your dream booth with parts from IKEA. Inspired by a guide from DJ Tech Tools circa 2011, DJ Puzzle has created an in-depth guide to constructing a DJ booth via ready-to-assemble furniture. The setup centers around a Kallax Bookshelf, which, aside from providing a stable foundation for one’s gear, also affords ample storage space for things like equipment or records. The total cost comes out to about $200, and, as detailed in the video, is not as daunting to assemble as one might think. Many DJs spend much of their time at home, in the studio or the in bedroom creating their sets. In the process, DJs have spent a great deal of money on the latest and greatest DJ gear. Luckily DJ Puzzle has assembled a way for you to receive the benefit of an awesome home audio desk without spending a hefty amount. IKEA also has other products that are useful such as some multi-color LED strips for some additional lighting in the darkness. If you’re the least bit serious about mastering your mixing skills, then take the time to check out the video below for creating your own audio desk!
The Swedish duo, Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom, came together in 2006, combining pop-leaning electro sounds and an over-the-top attitude. This eccentric duo injects their EDM with humor that fills dance floors to its capacity. They don’t care about genres. They don’t care about smartness. They don’t care about the things you care about. They just care about making their audience wanting to jump up and down all night long. Their single “The Fashionista Swindle” parodied the Sex Pistols with its artwork, “The Great Smorgasbord” introduced their love of processed meat, while “Do the Dada” introduced their love of being self-referential. Any song they choose to play fills the floor wherever the hottest electro is welcomed. They went official in 2009 with their debut album, Just Do The Dada, released by the Hussle label and featuring track titles like “Don’t Snort the Yellow Snow” and “So You Wanna Be a Prankster?” Their tour that followed after their album release, introduced Europe to their kinetic live shows where inflatables flew through the crowd, booking agents were forced to “Do the Dada” themselves, and the duo’s tour rider stated that the backstage area must be filled with champagne and bananas or the venue was punished with a tech-house set.
In 2010, they toured with Tiesto, playing remixes from Kylie Minogue to Chickenfoot and collaborating with Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, and Tara McDonald. In 2011 they headlined the Electric Daisy Festival in Los Angeles with a full marching band to perform their song “White Noise/Red Meat”. In July 2014, Dada Life debuted Dada Land: The Voyage, a mini-festival in San Bernardino, CA attended by over 10,000 fans where the duo arrived via hot air balloon. Dada Life will be gracing New York City tonight with their unique and enviable beats. Be sure to join this hilarious and extremely talented duo tonight at LAVO NYC for an unforgettable night. As Dada Life would say, “Destroy dance music and have fun. Don’t look back in the past. Always go forward. Don’t think too much. Always follow the money”.

M.A.N.D.Y. is a Berlin-based Microhouse, minimal house, techno group consisting of the talented duo, Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung. There is an air of mystery of the true meaning behind the acronym M.A.N.D.Y., which is an alias that embodies the mutual talents of these two childhood friends. They readily indulge this curiosity by toying with various clever possibilities, including Me AND You, but the truth is likely a meaning of their individual talents that has not been made to the public. Their ultimate expression of their dance music phenomenon is attributed to their foot stamping and hair flying techniques. They have a unique niche in electronic music by consistently selecting productions that induce their audience into a somatic frenzy.
M.A.N.D.Y. joined Booka Shade and DJ T to create the Get Physical Records and produced a caliber of electricity that rippled throughout the EDM community and into the relative mainstream that started first in Frankfurt and then in Berlin and now all over the world. When all three groups joined forces, they have pushed the boundaries of dance music to compile an enviable arsenal of electro kissing house while caressing disco and flirting with techno. With Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y was responsible for the club hit “Body Language,” which was named “Ibiza Track of the Season 2005” and has been licensed to more than 100 compilations. M.A.N.D.Y continues to power through with a perpetual rebirth into pulsating beats and pretty lights.
This dynamic duo are some of the most heavily booked house-DJs in Germany and continually gaining recognition internationally. Get Physical label released Hausmusik Vol. 1 last year with the idea of creating music well-suited for home enjoyment as well as on sweaty dance floors. The home listening series returns this month for a second time with the release of Hausmusik Vol. 2 with cuts from James Holden, M.A.N.D.Y. and Francesco Tristano to demonstrate the professional sound systems and sweaty dance floor antiques from the comfort of your home or a private party for an intimate selection of people and music. Don’t miss out on Get Physical label curator M.A.N.D.Y (Phillipp Jung) at Up & Down (244 W 14th St, New York, New York 10011) in NYC for this week’s installment of the Porn Shop. He will be joined by 2 other special guests alone with ZigZag regular Bru. Get ready for a night of mind boggling music with a dash of deep seductive vibes.
