WIP BANS TRAKTOR FROM FUTURE EVENTS

Spanish music agency WIP has banned the use of Traktor from parties it plans to throw in the future.

In a statement released via its Facebook page, WIP announced: "Nothing against Native Instruments and their software, which is great, innovative, and an amazing tool, as are pretty much all of NI products (love Komplete, and Maschine). The real issue is with 'artists' who swear they can play any format be it CD, vinyl, USB and or Traktor but whose Traktor sets are nothing but stale, bland and outright insulting to a paying crowd and promoter."

WIP, whose previous events have featured Seth Troxler, Nina Kraviz, James Priestley, Ralf Kollmann and Maxxi Soundsystem, has said the decision comes after three years of bad experiences with artists using the software and goes on to add: "More importantly, we're fed up with the general laziness shown by 99% of 'artists' that we've seen and heard playing Traktor."
