10 Black Friday steals for the budget raver

2017 seems to have flown by in an instant. The holidays are officially underway, and festive vibes are unavoidable as the year comes to a close. Just in time for Black Friday, we here at Dancing Astronaut thought it appropriate to compile a little list of key items offered at enticing prices.

Deals across the dance music spectrum are covered — from festival gear, to hardware.

Moog Minitaur Analog Bass Synthesizer

Moog is a favorite among those with a penchant for fusing a more live touch into their production. The prolific brand’s synthesizers are known for their quality and endurance, earning them respect from artists across genre lines. Its Minitaur represents a more affordable version of their more hardcore gear, and a great introductory tool into the synth world. Luckily, Sweetwater has Moog fans covered this year, with $100 savings on the Minitaur.

Ableton Live 9 Suite

Ableton is considered a world-class production software brand — its products are ubiquitous on the market today. However, quality comes at a price. The time is now to invest, with the Live 9 Suite being sold at a 20% discount with crediting options plus a free upgrade to Suite 10 when it comes out here.




JBL LSR305 is ideal for those just getting into production. For their price, these studio monitors offer a flat response and a decent range. While they already come at a budget-friendly price of $129 each, they’ve been brought down to $99 each for this Black Friday deal.




Marshall Kilburn Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Black Friday is offering plenty of strong deals for the average music consumer as well. This sleek Marshall bluetooth speaker is being offered at a 50% through Amazon. Use it for a small soirée, or take it out to the beach or other travel destinations.

Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs


There comes a time in every veteran raver’s life where they simply cannot take the quality of the music with foam ear protection any longer.

Invest in a pair of Eargasms for $30 in preparation for the New Year.
