Pioneer is teaming up with VH1’s Save the Music Foundation along with some of the top names in electronic dance music to design unique CDJ-2000 Nexus decks to be auctioned off for the foundation. Cosmic Gate will be joining the likes of Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Kaskade, along with Rukes & Insomniac to work with renowned German artist Norm/ab_artig to bring the decks to life with some one of a kind artwork.
These decks will be some of the rarest pieces of memorabilia from Cosmic Gate & the other artists so if you are a die-hard fan, make sure you get your bids in! All the proceeds go to a very worthy cause.
Here’s what Nic & Bossi had to say about their new venture. Nic Chagall: “although it’s early days we’ve already had a whole lot of ideas in mind as to the direction we’d like to take our design. We were immediately impressed when we saw Norm/ab_artig street art – we can’t wait to get working with him on it! Basically, this is where the beats will meet the streets!” Bossi’s further expands, “VH1’s impressive push to restore music education programs to public schools has been on both Nic’s and my radar for quite a time now. Through the Save The Music charity they’re helping nurture talent today that could very well turn into artists whose music we’re all listening to in the future. As musicians we see that as being an enormous positive and we’re very happy indeed to be able to support that through a channel as creative as Pioneer’s Art Mix project.”
If you are in LA, stop by The Bank (401 S. Main Street) on October 10th to catch a glimpse of all the artwork. The following day, all items will be posted online as part of the auction.
