Abstract and Keywords
This chapter examines the influence of digital and portable media on disc jockeying (DJing), both as a practice and cultural movement. It describes the transition from early DJ set-ups using analog records and turntables to the more recent explosion of digital DJing programs, laptop interfaces, smartphones and tablet DJ applications. In tracing these changes in DJ technology, it analyzes complex social and material processes of adopting new media, shifting hierarchies of musical taste and value, and music's mobility and portability in the age of the Digital DJ.
