DJ Static Makes A Dope Beat On The Fly

DJ Static makes a dope beat on the fly and it looks like he was using the MPC Software to build the beat. I didn’t see a MPC Ren, Studio, Touch or anything related to Akai on the controller side. From what I can see DJ Static is using a regular computer keyboard to program […]
