Roland and Serato team-up for something new that "will redefine what it means to DJ"

Roland and Serato have dropped a teaser video eluding to a new DJ tool that will most likely be Serato DJ controlled by some Roland hardware.

In what is touted as being "something truly unique" and "will redefine what it means to DJ", the video features Shinsuki Takame who discusses Roland's desire to "introduce themselves to the DJ world", in a meeting with Nick Maclaren from Serato, back in 2013.

Further to Roland's epic announcement earlier this week, #909day looks to be rather busy and the Japanese firm hinted at introducing a completely new category to its, already vast lineup of products.

Could this DJ tool collaboration with Serato be that very category? We won't know for sure until 9 September of course, but we think the safe money would say it is.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
