Local house music imprint Black Key Records are known for putting on intimate, high quality gatherings in unusual locations. Their passion for music means their demands for excellent audio fidelity are high.
Penguin Media Hire were chosen to provide a full PA, as well as DJ monitoring, DJ equipment for the main room and the room 2 cellar, as well as lighting for both rooms.
A Martin Audio WS18X / XD15 combination was chosen, with our Powersoft K Series DSP racks to run them – in addition, XD12’s were used for DJ monitoring. An industry standard DJ booth was supplied, with a Pioneer DJM900 Nexus mixer, CDJ2000 Nexus CD/USB players, and our immaculately kept Technics 1210 turntables. For the cellar, an Allen & Heath Xone:92 mixer was supplied, with another pair of Technics 1210’s. Lighting was kept simple but effective, with a pair of moving head profiles for the main room, along with the venue’s existing lighting – for the cellar, a 150W discharge centerpiece light is all that was needed – the atmosphere was on point, as was the music – many favourable comments were passed on, and we’re happy to report we already have the booking in place to provide the same setup for the next Black Key Records event.
