I love seeing what motivates people to start or participate in a “cause” and social media makes it so much easier to see what people care about both in and outside of work. Our director of digital at the agency where I work – Ged Carroll – last night was outraged by the news that Technics will be stopping production of its iconic 1200 and 1210 turntables next year. Unlike me who immediately thought of my boxed pair of decks sitting in my brother in law’s garage and saw pound signs in front of my eyes….Ged’s passion for the DJ scene over the years (or is it decades Ged?;-) ) has led him to set up a facebook action group to “Stop Technics Killing an Icon”.
SO if you have even a faintly positive memory of the club scene gone by…or ever loved watching the AMAZING Technics DJ championships…see below…..please lend your support.
