We broke news last week about Ecler’s long rumoured demise via a Spanish business news outlet. But it would appear that declaring bankruptcy is a long way from the end of the road, and we have exclusive word from Ecler explaining the full picture.
UPDATE: Word has just reached me from a trusted source that this isn’t the very end of Ecler. We will have exclusive information when it’s available, but clearly there are moves to save the brand from extinction.
The rumour mill has churned ceaselessly in recent times about companies changing hands or going under. But one confirmed casualty is Spanish mixer manufacturer Ecler. After a number of years of dwindling sales, they’ve declared bankruptcy in the Spanish courts. RIP Ecler.
It’s been a long hunt over many years, employing deep Google trawling and forensic Photoshop techniques. But finally, thanks to the Numark Facebook page and a response from a single DJ with a photo, the mixer used in the final scenes of classic Hip Hop movie Wild Style has been identified at last.
Allen & Heath knows how to make mixers. Normally associated with being in the booth, they’ve also serviced the entry level market for a long time too. The new xone:23 distills a lot of the established high expertise into a much smaller 2 channel unit. Mark Settle takes a look and establishes that two channels doesn’t always mean scratch mixer.
If you were waiting for a USB enabled Xone:23, then this is for you. Allen & Heath has announced the Xone:23C, with USB and X:LINK at Musikmesse 2014.
Old school mixer geeks – any idea what this mixer is from the film Wild Style? Help us so we can sleep at night.
A 2 channel mixer doesn’t have to be huge, and the Citronic MINI:MIX2 squeezes into the smallest corner of your DJ life, for not a lot of cash.
I often think that I need an extra pair of hands to pull of some tricks. And Chris Karns shows that he has in this Goro Mode Rane Sixty Two demo.
With the demise of Scratch Live comes Rane’s response. The Rane Sixty Four is Serato DJ ready right out of the box, a box that hits the streets in October.
The regular DJM-900 gets an all new Serato DJ infusion. The Pioneer DJM-900SRT is the same, but importantly radically different.
