Trade shows — do we DJs even care anymore?

Another year, and another dull Musikmesse. And after the fourth in a row preceded by a quiet NAMM, we have to ask — are DJ trade shows are past their prime?

Musikmesse 2016 is changing — all public days

Musikmesse 2016 is changing to be a public consumer focussed show. So will more potential visitors mean more new shiny will be announced at the show?

Musikmesse 2014: What do you think is coming?

Musikmesse 2013: Numark Edge DJ controller hands-on

The Numark Edge shoehorns itself into the physical space format between iPad and controller. We grabbed it at Musikmesse 2013 and were impressed.
