The Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus has scooped the Cutting Edge award at the 2013 DJ Awards, recognising the flagship multiplayer’s industry-leading evolution.
International techno DJ Cristian Varela collected the sought-after prize on behalf of Pioneer DJ at the 16th DJ Awards ceremony held at Pacha, Ibiza, saying: “I’ve loved the CDJ-2000nexus since it launched, it gives me the tools I need to take my performance to the next level. It’s all I use now.”
