My best friend and I are always trying to outdo each other. This started in high school, and even today, the competition still lingers. Since we are both DJ’s, the challenge lies in the gigs that we get, our spinning abilities, and the equipment we use. If one of us gets invited to spin at a popular club, the other has to outshine it, lest he wants to lose.
There was this time when my friend was able to buy the MIDI controller that I always wanted. I was happy for him since it was a good piece of equipment, but I also knew that he did it to further ignite our little game. To get back at him, I purchased the akai lpd8 at musicians friend as soon as I got the money. We wanted it both because it works like a gem. Up to this day my friend is trying to find a better controller, but I am confident that there is nothing else out there because I got the best.
