I got the first Serato picture disk coming out!

December 31st, 2008

As you may know, Serato is from New Zealand. I just played in New Zealand last night for New Year’s Eve (midnight timeslot, holler). Well the guys told me they’d come out and bring me surprise. Ho ho ho, I didn’t expect this though! Sure I knew we were making a picture disk for Say Whoa to celebrate the release of my Running Man record (thank you Nike) but I didn’t know it was ready! And I also didn’t realize that it’s the first official Serato picture disk on their Whitelabel.net label. I’m not big on claiming credit but I guess I was the first DJ on Serato — I used to test out their beta version way before it was available commercially — so now it all came full circle.

I haven’t even tried it out yet but I believe the picture side plays Say Whoa and the other side is a Serato control tone. So the idea is, you use it as a control record and when you need to play regular vinyl to switch over with another DJ, you play my track! 

Doesn’t Dust La Rock’s artwork look spiffy on that baby? The character’s name is Mr A and he likes to run.

    That is beautiful. I had no idea they could print graphics on records. It makes me want to release my own album. I wonder how they do it.

  3. Mr. La Rock says:

    The most common way to make a picture disc is to press the printed art on paper between multiple layers of vinyl. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle..

    Are these going to be super hard to get your hands on? Another set like the purple and white control vinyls?
