Cerwin-Vega! recently launched its new P-Series professional PA system with events at the Gibson Showrooms in New York and Los Angeles. This new product, from the Gibson Pro Audio brand, was put to the test by artists such as DJ Premier, The Dirty Pearls, echosmith and DJ Serafin. Suited for any sound-reinforcement application, from live performances to public speeches, the P-Series P1500X speakers were used both as monitor wedges and stacked with the P1800SX subwoofers for full amplification.
The performance in New York on December 6 took place at the former Hit Factory Studios and featured performances by DJ Premier and The Dirty Pearls. As guests made their way into the showroom, Scratch DJ Academy guru DJ Henry C mixed songs from today’s top 100 list on Stanton STR.150 turntables, with his beats blasting through the P-Series. One of the highlights of the evening was the unexpected performance by 12-year-old Luka, a Scratch DJ Academy student who is better known as Not Your Average DJ. For his turn at the helm, and with DJ Henry C by his side, Luka laid down some old school rap beats using the Stanton SCS.4DJ Complete DJ System.
After Luka’s set, the crowd made its way to the live performance stage, where they rocked out to The Dirty Pearls, who played several of their original songs, including “Who’s Coming Back To Who,” “Caffeine and Gasoline” and “NYC Is A Drug.” With such a loud set, the band put the Cerwin-Vega! P-Series through its paces, and their performance continuously had a clear sound with ample power and punch.
Hopping on a plane to do it all over again, the Gibson Pro Audio team members headed to Los Angeles, where they hosted another P-Series event on December 11, featuring DJ Serafin, DJ Young 1 and echosmith. DJ Serafin kicked off the night, spinning a collection of songs from the ’80s, ’90s and today on a Stanton STR.150. The crowd got pumping with his edgy mix of the popular song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. With the P-Series helping to showcase his talents, DJ Serafin really got the party started.
After Serafin pumped up the house, 10-year-old DJing sensation and Jam Master Jay Scratch Academy student DJ Young 1 took to the stage mixing a collection of today’s hottest hits on a Stanton SCS.4DJ. The Cerwin-Vega P-Series highlighted just how talented she was, providing a crisp, clean, powerful punch of audio to the revelers. Closing out the night was the band echosmith, which performed several of their own original songs.
