Richie Hawtin and Andy Rigby-Jones’ PLAYdifferently MODEL 1 made waves in the DJ community last year with its unveiling, and Louie Vega has been named its newest ambassador.
The announcement sees the Grammy-winning New York house legend joining the ranks of MODEL 1’s other ambassadors, including Chris Liebing, Dubfire, Loco Dice, Matador, Nicole Moudaber, and more. Citing the MODEL 1’s sound quality, Vega has retired his rotary mixer in favor of the new unit after putting it through its paces over the past few months.
“The MODEL 1 mixer is a great sounding mixer and works like magic at my gigs. All DJs who are in the club recognize how good the room sounds when I’m playing on this mixer. Then they want it too!!! There is so much you can do with it creatively, I’m having fun with it. PLAYdifferently MODEL 1 is the mixer for the future, get on this spaceship early and get yours! Hopefully in the future PLAYdifferently will create a rotary version and I can help in that creation!”
To celebrate the announcement, Vega has put together an hour-long studio mix recorded using the PLAYdifferently MODEL 1. Peep the hot house vibes below and go here for more PLAYdifferently information.
