NEW XONE:92 MIXES AT ALTITUDE IN THE ALPS
Allen & Heath’s industry-standard Xone:92 was once again the DJ mixer of choice at the recent Caprices music festival, which takes place every year at the Crans-Montana ski resort in the Swiss Alps.
The 4-day festival hosts a comprehensive programme of DJ performances, as well as live band performances.
A highlight of the DJ programme was a special daytime event called Modernity, held at an altitude of 2300m at the Cry d’Er station. A new colour Xone:92 DJ mixer was requested for the event, which included sets by Riccardo Villalobos and friends.
In the evening, Villalobos’ concept band, Narod Niki, put on a special show. Narod Niki is a collection of renowned international DJ’s forming an improv-techno-all-star band, who perform together using a special variation of Ableton’s Live software for synchronisation. The Narod Niki line up at Caprices featured 8 producers – including Fumiya Tanaka, Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Carl Craig and Richie Hawtin – all of whom were mixing on their own Xone:92, fed to a 16-channel MixWizard sub mixer.
