Welcome to the Live Performance Area!
In this section we track down the best live mixing ever uploaded on YouTube, so it could be in the same time a good promotion tool for talented dj's around the world. As nowadays modern technique such as hardware and especially the software used within, all it remains to be done is imagining a cover (or a musical theme) for an existent music track, but in order to get the final product you need some skills. "And that's how it's done." Best regards from ModernVibe!
MYSTO AND PIZZI
"Mysto & Pizzi are two up and coming producers, ages 21 and 22, hailing out of Queens, New York, who are quickly establishing a name for themselves in the world of Pop and R&B music. Their first major placement was on R. Kelly’s “Double Up” album ( track “Get Dirty feat. Chamillionaire”) which debuted at 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned the production duo their first Platinum Plaque. They then quickly followed up with their second major release on Kelly Rowland’s album “Ms. Kelly” (track “Love”) which received great reviews and opened several doors for the duo. Since then Mysto & Pizzi have been hard at work on several major projects as well as official remixes for artists such as Justin Timberlake, Ciara, Beyonce and Britney Spears. In 2009 Mysto & Pizzi landed their cover of Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” on the new national GEICO “Kash” Campaign airing now. The duo has also been working a lot with several established as well as up and coming songwriters such as Ryan Tedder (of OneRepublic), Evan Bogart, Makeba Riddick, Taj Jackson, Solange Knowles, Christina Milian, Wynter Gordon, Lil’ Eddie and Eritza (of Esquared), Corey Williams (a.k.a Latif), Phyllis & Cannon, Ilya S., and Renald Francoeur.

CAFE DEL MAR
Mixing a track live makes waves, if you know how to impress. Nothing can be compared with the experience of being surrounded by people moving on the sounds you just led out! A real Dj knows his work. He always takes his cautions. That's why a remix is always so perfect. So, in this post, i'm gonna let the author do the talking. " This is modeled after two of my favorite songs of all time: Energy 52 - Cafe del Mar (Aquarius Remix) and Paul Oakenfold - Tranceport - Cafe Del Mar (Three N One Remix). With the use of a midi controller I route the individual elements of the song with the buttons and faders on the right, and tweak them with the dials on the left. This gives me enough control over the sounds to play it in a thousand different ways." (YouTube Video Description).
"Dub FX (real name Benjamin Stanford) is a worldwide street performer and studio recording artist from St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. His trademark is the use of loop and effect pedals combined with his voice. He creates intricate hip hop, reggae and drum and bass rhythms. Some of his music is also referred to as dubstep. Stanford travels and performs with his partner, who is known simply as Flower Fairy. Dub Fx first met her in Manchester, and she joined him in his travels around the globe to busk for the public. Flower Fairy can usually be seen selling CDs during Dub Fx's performances and also performs a few songs alongside Stanford. She is featured singing in a song on Everythinks A Ripple, Sooth Your Pain. Two other songs from Everythings A Ripple, Flow and Wandering Love, feature a street saxophonist named Mr Woodnote, who also uses similar looping techniques as Dub Fx using a saxophone."
