Everyone who has DJ or producer in their life ask themselves the same question – What a gift can I buy for my producer friend? And, of course, that is a trick question – no DJ and producer ever have it all. There is always more space on producers’ hard drives and studio desks for music-making gizmos, gear or gadgets to distract them, stop producers from finishing music or even inspire their next track.

With all the holidays at this time of the year, we have some interesting last minute gift ideas for DJ or music producer in your life. Luckily for you, music equipment has been so affordable with mini music makers and micromachines in the market over the past few years.

We’re suggesting for every budget so you can put a smile on the face of your favorite producer, and then unfortunately never see them for six months.
