Well, whether or not it really is the #futureofDJing, the Kontrol S8 is almost definitely the future of Traktor… and with this (rather trippy, it must be said) dancefloor video, Native Instruments has today finally put the Traktor Kontrol S8 on sale.
The video is of Davide Squillace DJing at Fabric in London. While we’re not ready to try this out in a club ourselves yet (our review sample only arrived an hour ago…), we are going to spend the weekend – and probably most of next week! – getting to know it, so expect our review as soon as we’ve got it sussed. Meanwhile, click here to watch that promo video .
