Well its that time again. That special month when all the manufactures pack up their goods from around the world, fly to LA and shop their new products to the hungry stores. Its also great place for running shoes and ear plugs if you plan on walking through football fields of perpetual noise. Somehow though, from the din of 100 dj booths all vying for sonic space there usually arises interesting new products that hold promise for the future of djing. Last year we discovered the Otus from EKS, what will it be this time?
Dj TT will be there for all 4 days, cameras in hand, talking to folks and searching for anything you might be interested in. Check on the site Friday morning when all the news will be posted. If you find yourself at NAMM, stop by and check out my sets on Friday and Saturday at the Vestax booth.
