Track two, "The Niacin," exclusive to this Serato release, starts its point of reference in the dusty breakbeats of golden-era hip-hop. Featuring virtuoso Shawn Lee (Ubiquity), trumpeter Michael Leonhart (Truth & Soul, Daptone), and Italian cinephiles Calibro 35 (Nublu), the instrumental track expands into a free-form jam session that references both film maestro Ennio Morricone and hip-hop legend DJ Premier.
In 2004, Serato debuted its Scratch Live software, allowing DJs to mix and scratch files from their computer using regular turntables or CDJs. Control Vinyl in various colors soon became collector's items among DJs. Side 1 of this release plays as a normal vinyl record, while Side 2 is designed to interact with Serato's software.
