Sometimes a product comes along that turns even the seasoned professional’s heads. One such product is the PLAYdifferently Model 1. Basically the brainchild of Techno overlord Richie Hawtin, this left thinking mixer has turned the heads of almost everyone that has come into contact with it (holding one even coaxed a smile out of our Dan). And it seems that the legendary Carl Cox has taken quite a liking to the Model 1, to a point where it’s a permanent part of his setup.

In this video. Carl walks us through how the Model 1 has shaped his setup, and the techniques he uses when playing. It’s a short but cool glimpse into seeing how a VIP DJ works — I certainly learned a few things watching it.


Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
