Richie Hawtin unveils brand new Model 1 Mixer

The product of two years of collaborative design between iconic DJ/producer Richie Hawtin and developer Andy Rigby-Jones, the new PLAYdifferently Model 1 DJ mixer has been officially unveiled today.

In a press release, Hawtin stated that the piece of gear was designed to provide “a mixer more akin to an instrument with intuitive controls, uncompromising quality and features that can unlock a new wave of creativity.” So far, the hardware has already been tried out and endorsed by Loco Dice, Dubfire, and Chris Liebing, among others.
