Jack Hill currently holds six world records, including the world’s youngest record producer. This Summer, Jack spun tracks at a host of major music festivals all over the world, including producing his own downloadable club track. A regular across mainstream media, Jack has been interviewed on BBC Breakfast, Newsround and featured in the Daily Mail and will now be making radio and TV appearances in the run up to Christmas to demonstrate the features of the EZ Pro DJ Mixer.

Ken Goodisson, senior marketing director at Jakks UK, said: “This is the perfect partnership for us on EZPro DJ as, at 12 years old, Jack is the perfect interface between kids and parents who are new to mixing and music sampling and experienced professionals with whom Jack has an existing working relationship. He has incredible contacts across the music industry which will enable us to target influential opinion formers and showcase the product in its natural surroundings.”

Featuring an iOS device dock to download and mix stored tracks via a downloadable app, the EZ Pro DJ offers a good introduction to the world of DJ mixing. Effects can be produced and blended via twin turntables, 12 sample touch buttons and projected through two integrated speakers.
