Netflix has announced the premiere of a brand new comedy series, Turn Up Charlie, starring certified renaissance man Idris Elba as Charlie — a struggling DJ on his last chance. A little outside the norm for the James Bond prospect and venerated UK house legend, the eight-episode first season centers on Charlie as he reluctantly accepts a job as a “manny” to his famous best friend’s daughter and hilarity likely ensues between the perennial bachelor DJ and problem child daughter.

The series, slated for a March 15 debut, was co-created by Elba and Gary Reich was co-produced by the Luther star’s Green Door Pictures and Reich’s Brown Eyed Boy Productions. See the first look at Idris Elba’s upcoming comedy Turn Up Charlie below.

Native Instruments soups up flagship S4 Kontroller, Traktor DJ softwareNew Native Instruments Trakor Kontrol S4

Both DJ hobbyists and serious controllerists have a ton to look forward to in Native Instruments‘ revamped hardware and software offerings, including a tasty new S4 controller and Traktor Pro 3 DJ software. After almost four years, the beloved DJ ecosystem was beginning to lag a bit as competitors added hefty features — but NI is out to remedy that. The updates to the company’s flagship pro controller and software are just a handful of an entirely revamped product lineup. New goodies on the production side include new versions of favorites like their Komplete virtual synth bundle, and Maschine sampler hardware. NI CEO Daniel Haver put the changes in perspective, saying:

“This announcement marks a new chapter in NI history. For music-makers of all styles and abilities, there’s now an ideal entry point to the NI ecosystem—from inspirational starter kits that guide first experiences to pro-grade products that enable our users to push the boundaries of music production and performance.”

The impressive new S4 alone is must-see tech for DJs. The biggest news? The S4’s new jogwheels are motorized and equipped with new Traktor tech they’re calling “haptic drive.” The jogs promise tactile weighted feel for improved scratching and beat matching, as well as lightning-quick access to song search, cue point setting, and more. The S4 is set to ship in November at $899, while Traktor Pro 3 drops this October. If two decks and ultra-portable fun is enough, NI’s updated S2 entry level rig can be had for $299.
