Preset name with .mp3 demo My comments
00 Techno A classy techno beat, with cool synth pad and bass.  I'm tweaking the effects in real-time.
07 Underground Classic house style - with nice synth work.  I'm probably overdoing the effects... ;-D
09 Discomania Modern rendition of classic disco styles, with obligatory string runs and bass played near the bridge.  Check out how cool the effects in the DJX-IIB are.  The Kraftwerk-style rez-zaps come from scratching the cd-pad.
16 Club Vibes Very modern club style - hypnotic and fat - very Euro.  I'm (badly) scratching at the end.
22 Trance Traxx One of my favorite genres, Trance is here well-represented.  Powerful FX - this machine is great for live use.
25 Elektro Empire Unashamedly ripped off from Herbie Hancock's "Rockit", this is a killer preset.  I definitely need to learn how to scratch.. but I'm having too much fun!
29 Garage Ultra-cool British garage here - aka 2-step.  More cool scratch variants and sounds.
32 Drum 'n' Bass Dreamy jungle/d 'n' b pattern - very busy and particular.
38 Hip Hop Sounds more like rock but hey.  Very nice effects...
41 Space Hop Only needs the bouncing car
43 Swing Hop Classy and cool
47 Gangsta Very cool!  Great distortion fx, among the others.
54 Intelligent Sounds a bit like Britney Spears' arrangement
57 Funky Hip Hop Funk
61 Old Skool I hear influences from Juan Atkins/Cybotron - Cosmic Cars, and Harold Faltermeyer - Axel F here...
67 Trip Hop Awesome pattern, very early Portishead... I love the delay and echo on this machine.. just beautiful (pardon my bad scratching technique...)
