It’s easy to take DJing too seriously. For some, it’s life itself and most probably their mortgage too. For them, DJing is an art, a craft, and should be spoken of only in the most reverential of terms. That’s fine of course, but it strikes me we seem to be forgetting a key element,  and that’s fun. And for beginners looking to start somewhere, there is no better place to start than a cheap and simple controller that has the essential element of fun built right in.

Yes I know it’s never going to be seen in a booth, nor will professionals take it seriously. But for a great many beginners, this is going to hit the spot perfectly. For 70 quid, you get a basic 2 channel controller and a light show. I’ve seen a video — it definitely is fun. Imagine a bedroom, with said beginner fist pumping for their imaginary crowd… the light show really helps to set the tone.

I say beginner, because that’s clearly the target market. But there’s enough on this to rock any party. And now it has lights.
