We recently partnered with Red Bull and Streetvirus to design the ultimate DJ Backpack that finalists in the Red Bull Thre3Style competition will receive. To make the most functional DJ Backpack, we consulted with friend, DJ Clark Kent, who has made classic beats for multiple hip hop legends and travels the world performing in clubs. Young Guru (Jay-Z’s DJ and engineer) also worked with us during the design process to construct an innovative and stylish DJ Backpack.
During the design process, we measured everything a DJ would typically carry with them to a performance and made sure there was a spot for each of these items in the bag. The front section of the backpack consists of two zippered pockets (one of them is fleece lined) which were designed to carry small valuables like batteries, memory cards, flash drives and cell phone. The second section of the bag has six mesh zippered pockets designed to hold cords of all kinds. Opposite the zippered pockets, are four padded slots that house a Shure needle case, hard drive, Serato SL4 and head phones. The third compartment of the bag was designed for 6 to 8 records and the fourth section can hold up to an 18” laptop and an ipad. The last section has a rear compartment, similar to our other backpacks, designed to store CDs. The bottom of the bag is water-resistant, includes sturdy feet so the bag sits upright and features a duck print camo pattern designed by Streetvirus.
We will be releasing a limited run of the DJ Backpack this April. The Lexdray version DJ Pack (Ibiza Pack) will feature an all-black exterior and a grey-scale duck print camo lining. The bag will retail for $405 and will be available here on our site and in select retail shops.
