Earlier today Native Instruments released a new video featuring DJ MK in Glasgow speaking about his DJ experience and where the DJ game is headed today. NI has always had its foot in the Production door with the Maschine and Komplete and they have a steady foot on the DJ side of the house with Traktor. They started to bridge that gap with the Remix decks but we're pretty sure that NI is going to mix the Production and DJ software in a revolutionary way.
