MusicThing sums up the Russian DIY homemade DJ cassette decks nicely- DJ Aptem is a new MT hero – he’s done what I always dreamed of doing when I was little and couldn’t afford a pair of Technics. He’s built a pair varispeed tape decks, complete with ‘jog wheel’, EQ and motor off switches. He also has a nice minimal studio setup (he only uses Max/MSP). DJ Aptem, we salute you!
