Next up on our tour of the warehouse is one of our newer pieces of kit, the Mash Machine DJ Game. If you’ve ever fancied yourself as the next Fatboy Slim or Annie Mac, this one’s for you!
The Mash Machine is a great ice-breaker for corporate events and networking occasions; a serious crowd-puller for exhibitions and promotions; and an innovative team building activity. Book it for a party and your guests will be talking about it for weeks to come.
What is it?
The Mash Machine is a juke box for the digital age – but rather than popping a coin in the slot and choosing a song, you make your own music.
Each of up to four players controls a set of coloured blocks: Red for drums, blue for basslines, green for melodies and yellow for vocals. Each block plays a different sample as you place it onto the board.
As you add and remove your blocks, you’ll start to create an original track. Slide the blocks around the board to add phase, flanger and echo effects.
What makes it so special?
The Mash Machine is pretty new to the UK events scene. It’s one of the most innovative interactive games we’ve seen and is a near-perfect way to engage a crowd and get the party started.
One of its many joys is that it is quick and easy to learn. You can grasp the basics in less than a minute, then have hours of fun understanding the different sound effects and perfecting your skills.
The manufacturers of the Mash Machine describe it as ‘a unique social music experience’. It really does bring people together, with players teaming up to create the best tracks and the audience getting involved too.
Even the least musical-minded of players will soon get the hang of it. Within minutes you’ll be mixing like a professional and mentally packing your bags for Ibiza.
What kind of event is it good for?
The Mash Machine makes any event feel like a party. We’ve seen it used to full effect for:
• Product launches
• Promotional events
• Festivals and street parties
• DJ battles
• Corporate social events
• Networking events
• Team building days
Can it be customised for my event?
The Mash Machine can be skinned with your own branding or with a scheme that matches your existing event design.
We can also customise the music samples. From house and hip hop to rock and gospel, we’ll set the machine up in advance with a music library that is a perfect fit with your event.
