    easiest option would be to get one of these (make sure it's long enough)...

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-6-3mm...?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1294073990&sr=1-35

    and a pair of ACTIVE monitors like these...

    a monitor station like this one would open up a lot of possibilities...

    i don't know your whole set up.

    sounds like you need another mixer, something like this...

    http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/product/8545-behringer-xenyx-802.html#sterling_uk

    this will give you options for merging sound sources and utilising a variety of
    outputs for monitoring and recording.

    you could send your DJ monitors straight from your existing mixer, then merge that output with the mic and send to another monitor using something like the above - you will also have multiple options for sending to record.

    that's my advice.
