Pioneer DJ has teamed up with renowned fashion designer and occasional DJ Virgil Abloh on transparent versions of the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 mixer. These exclusive units debut at Abloh’s Figures Of Speech exhibition opening next month at Chicago’s Museum Of Contemporary Art.

According to Abloh, these ‘skeleton’ models were designed to “inspire a different sound while DJing, and perhaps a new way for music technology and human interaction to equal a different result”. Pioneer DJ also adds that the transparent devices were specifically created for the “Pioneer DJ c/o Virgil Abloh” project, which may just see more unique DJ gear birthed forth.

As mentioned earlier, the transparent units will be on display during the Figures Of Speech exhibition, which takes place from 10 June to 22 September 2019. For ticket details, head over to
