Yesterday, we gave our dear friend DJ Shiva a pretty remarkable birthday gift. An Elektron Machinedrum Mk2 UW+
We kept it secret for weeks, using Indiegogo for crowdfunding. A total of 36 people chipped in to make it happen, and as you’ll see in the video, it was more than worth it. She had no clue whatsoever! Thought she was just coming over for birthday cake. She couldn’t even believe it when she unwrapped it, and thought it was just a Machinedrum box with something else inside.
Lisa is a sister to me, and it was such a joy to see her so surprised by the outpouring of love that so many people have for her.
Heh, sadly she hasn’t even had the chance to play with it yet. We took her up to Chicago for the weekend and just got back.
Now she’s got to broadcast her 2 hour radio mix show SUBterror Radio | DJ Shiva brings you the best techno on … starts in 20 min (5PM Eastern US)
What torture to get such an amazing gift and have to wait days to use it. Hehehe
