Nix Electronix, HH-50 Record Player
Portable record player, each is a unique, one-of-one item.
Limited Edition of 50.
Customized, and signed by producer and DJ Nick Speed.
In celebration of the day that Hip-Hop transformed the turntable into an instrument, Nick Speed has released his latest art piece, a portable record player entitled, 'Nix Electronix, HH-50'.
Each customized record player, a series of 50 Limited Edition hand-numbered and autographed units, represents a year of Hip-Hop between 1973 and 2023. This will be a historic release as this is a first; no Hip-Hop artist in the last 50 years of the genre has independently started their own record player company.
The debut series was released on Friday, August 11, 2023, on the official 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop. It was on that very day in 1973, that DJ Kool Herc threw the first documented Hip-Hop party in The Bronx, New York. For the first time, Herc debuted his "merry-go-round" DJ technique, where he focused on playing the drum break section of all of the songs in his playlist for the night, marking the night that Hip-Hop culture was born.
Order estimated ship date September 1, ships from Detroit, MI.
Official release date: August 11, 2023.
