Review from the Purchaser of the SBS Slammer designed & built by Craig 'Shorty' Bernabeu for Amman, Jordan:
Clarity beyond words, power that you felt in your chest, loudness that was heard clearly for miles.
No joke, I had people who followed the sound from the highway. People said they felt those subs in their feet as the danced, people who felt the sound while in the pool.
[DJ] Demi worked your Slammer in ways you can't imagine. He worked that system so [well that] every couple of tracks he'd run out from behind the dj booth upfront and center and enjoy his own tracks with the crowd. So good he played through till the end and [the] closing dj didn't even mind. He was loving it himself, not to mention i had to quite literally peel him off the decks.
Thank you for having faith in me and allowing me to bring your design to this part of the world.
World Renowned DJ Demi on the SBS Slammer SL Series Mobile Contractor series sound system:
I love to play extended sets that span the spectrum of house, techno and disco, so I need to know the sound-system I am going to be performing on can match my vision of a musical journey I like to take my audience on.
I've had the privilege to play on undoubtedly Shorty's finest masterpiece from yesteryear called 'The Beast' which was his creation for Stereo in Montreal. So I can talk from experience in commenting on the next level sonic treatment this man provides whenever he is called upon to custom build a sound system for a space.
When I found out I was to be booked to play on the first portable sound system custom built by Shorty for the MIddle East in Amman, Jordan, I spent an inordinate amount of time going through my playlists to put together a meticulous selection of music knowing that they will have a chance to shine on such a system. Often I am left frustrated when there are some brilliant produced dance tracks I play that aren't sonically truly presented at some of my gigs due to the compromises made on the sound.
I know this is never the case with what Shorty touches.
And so my approach takes a holistic turn to ensure his work is upheld. This is also my duty as a DJ as well as to the people on the dancefloor.
Shorty's SBS Slammer SL Series Mobile Sound System may be the little brother in the family but the Sub-Bass Horns and 2-way Horn-Loaded Trapezoid Full-Range speakers that make up this little baby packs a warmth and clarity that most larger sound systems spectacularly fail on.
With the sonic ship I was steering, it became a therapeutic ride through the past, present and future electronica for myself and for those in attendance.
