A group of world-leading artists and DJs have confirmed to be a part of the first international tour for PLAYdifferently - a series of events to showcase the final prototypes of the brand's new mixer.

Over the past two years, Richie Hawtin and British product-developer Andy Rigby-Jones, in partnership with Allen & Heath and the Audiotonix, have been developing and testing their first prototype of the mixer that they feel is missing from the professional DJ market. Assessed at various leading worldwide events including ENTER.Ibiza, Glastonbury Festival and the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, the first prototype has already seen a number of iterations and is nearing completion.

The PROTOYPES TOUR will start in Los Angeles at Sound on Monday, March 14 and go on to visit iconic club venues around the world including Fabric (London), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Watergate (Berlin), Tenax (Florence) and the Panther Room at Output (New York). The tour will stop at leading music conventions includingMusikmesse (Germany), SXSW and Miami Music Week/Ultra Music Week in North America. In-store performance are also on the schedule at the Walrus record store/cafe in central Paris, plus a special talk at SXSW with Resident Advisor where Hawtin will reveal more about the new mixer in public. The tour will also host stages at two global festivals: Movement in Detroit and Awakenings in Amsterdam.
