Oct 4, 2013

Long Beach, Calif.-based Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. will host its second Pioneer DJ Art Mix event from 6-10 p.m. on Oct. 10 in Los Angeles in conjunction with the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk.

Pioneer DJ Art Mix showcases the talent of disc jockeys, urban artists and companies, all of which were challenged by Pioneer to create custom pieces of art using the infotainment company’s CDJ-200nexus digital music player as a canvas. More artists are participating in the exhibition this year.  The 2011 event featured 12 artists, while the 2013 event will have 27, according to Jaed Arzadon, manager of corporate communications for Pioneer Electronics (USA).

The art pieces will be unveiled at the Pioneer DJ Art Mix event, which will be followed by a month-long online auction of the collection with proceeds going to the VH1 Save the Music Foundation to restore music education programs in public schools.

Participating companies include Insomniac, Rukes.com, LRG and Five Axis. Participating artists include Claw Money, Jesse Dean Designs, MEEX, Couto Brothers, Joex2 and Danielle Jade Gonzalez. Participating DJs include Kaskade, Zedd, NERVO, Dada Life, A-Trak, Laidback Luke, Markus Schulz, Cosmic Gate, Crystal Hefner, James Zabiela, Morgan Page, 12th Planet, Ferry Corsten, DJ Vice, DJ Hapa, Fei Fei and Manufactured Superstars.

“Music is the heart and soul of our products, which is why we are so pleased to be supporting music education in schools again through the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, utilizing the Pioneer DJ Art Mix exhibition for awareness,” said David Arevalo, director of marketing for the Professional Sound and Visual Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA).
