PostmodernJukebox Keeps Swinging on YouTube

Pianist Scott Bradlee started PostmodernJukebox (PMJ) as a creative side project in the early days of YouTube and viral videos. Mixing modern pop hits with styles of the past, Bradlee and his musically inclined friends created a new phenomenon. A decade later, PMJ has grown to more than five million YouTube subscribers, which has earned them appearances on national television, along with a live audience following for their in-person performances. To keep the musical fun going strong, and easy to hear, PMJ relies on a large collection of DPA Microphones.

Hollow Hearts Sound Fantastic With DPA Microphones Posted: 03/03/2020
Hollow Hearts Sound Fantastic With DPA Microphones

Norwegian sound engineer Tom Meyer has built up a large collection of DPA microphones over the years and has always been very happy with the results they deliver. 

Based in Bardu in northern Norway, Tom Meyer has been tackling live sound engineering projects since 1990 and now runs his own company, TM Tour Production. He first became aware of DPA through the 4011 Cardioid Microphone and was very impressed with its sound, particularly when he used it to amplify large conferences or kick drums for touring bands.

In recent months, TM Tour Production has been using its DPA microphones on a variety of projects, including live gigs with Hollow Hearts, a folk band from Tromsø.

The mic package Meyer uses for Hollow Hearts – and for many of the other bands he works with - includes a 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid microphone with 4011 windscreens on kickdrum, a 4018V with a compact preamp on snare top, a 2011 on HiHat, overheads and guitars, a 4099 Instrument Microphone on snare (under) and toms and 4018v d:facto Vocal Microphones for all vocalists

“Hollow Hearts plays quite low on stage, so the openness of the DPAs sounds really good,” he says. “I think the 2011 in particular is fast becoming an industry standard because you can put it everywhere and it always sound great in your PA.”

DPA Highlights A Host of Exciting New Microphone Products at ISE 2020

In order to give customers as much choice as possible, DPA Microphones is unveiling new colour options for its powerful 6000 series of Subminiature Microphones so that they can be more closely matched to the wearer’s skin tone and clothing.

Already one of the smallest and most inconspicuous bodyworn microphones on the market, the 6000 series will now be even less obtrusive, leaving presenters, artists and audiences free to focus on content and performance rather than technology.

On Booth 7-V245 at ISE, where DPA is exhibiting with its Benelux distributor AMPTEC, the company will also be showing its new 4560 CORE Binaural Headset Microphone, which is specifically targeted at sound designers, podcasters, vloggers, film makers and other content creators who want to capture authentic immersive audio for their projects. Another new product is the 2028 Vocal Microphone, which aims to change the live performance landscape with its renowned natural sound, road-ready design and competitive price point. 

DPA will complete its ISE line up with the 4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Mic, which is expertly tailored to capture dynamic choir sound.
