NAMM 2019: Is Denon DJ trying to loosen Pioneer DJ's vice-like grip on the world of DJ tech?

NAMM 2019: In this teaser video from Denon DJ, it would seem the InMusic brand has machinations of going up against Pioneer DJ this year, if the tagline #ChangeYourRider is anything to go by.

The video includes various big-name DJs rocking some very impressive stages, including the likes of Oliver Heldens.

We’d take a guess that Denon DJ hopes to ease Pioneer DJ’s stranglehold on the industry with some new gear releases, although there is no mention of how, or what they might entail. 

Stay tuned for more news as we get it and keep an eye on our NAMM news and rumours page.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
