Just last week, Pioneer DJ announced a brand new entry level controller, the DDJ – 200. The impressive piece of tech included a bunch of brand new features at an affordable price for any aspiring DJ. Around one week later, Pioneer DJ has revealed another one of a kind CDJ and Mixer that everyone wants to get their hands on.

From the photo above, you’ll automatically notice how the entire piece of equipment is transparent. The CDJs and Mixer shown, were designed by Virgil Abloh, an American DJ, fashion designer and entrepreneur. The CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 models above, are reportedly going to be shown at the Figures of Speech exhibit at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. It will be on display from June 10 through September 22.

I aimed to design a see thru and non-labeled rendition of the classic models to inspire a different sound while djing.”

Abloh first brought the transparent collection to the public view at Coachella this past March. Since then, there has been no word on whether the collection will ever be sold to the public. It’s definitely a unique style, bringing us back to the early 2000s with the transparent computers and cell phones. All in all, if you’re in the Chicago area this year, tickets for the museum can be found here.
