James Murphy and 2ManyDJs dropped some serious money to create the 50,000-watt vinyl-only Despacio Soundsystem. It’s an impressive collection of eight eleven foot tall speaker stacks powered by forty-eight McIntosh amplifiers. At roughly $30,000.00 USD EACH, this was a serious step forward in sound engineering.
The massive McIntosh system was built mainly for one-off events but has since toured all over the world backed by a handful of the best turntable DJs.
DJ Heidi sat in for B.Traits’ BBC Radio 1 show over the weekend and delivered a special surprise, a mix from Despacio.
