This is a guide for everyone out there who leaves their present buying late - admittedly much of the research has been done by the Evermix team buying last minute gifts ourselves!
So without further ado... our top picks for the DJ in your life, from stocking fillers to bank account busters.
Synthesizer Evolution: From Analogue to Digital (and Back) - Oli Freke (Velocity Press)
Coming in at #1, this is essential reading and studio coffee table material for every self-respecting synth fan out there.
The book is Oli's celebration of the impact of synths on music and culture by providing a comprehensive and meticulously researched directory of every major synthesizer, drum machine and sampler made between 1963 and 1995.
Each featured instrument is illustrated by hand and shown alongside its vital statistics and some fascinatingly quirky facts.
London locals will be familiar with Oli's work and posters which have been on display at the London Design Museum throughout 2020.

Pioneer HDJ-CUE1 DJ Headphones
Coming in at under £60, these wallet friendly cans are among the cheapest in the pioneer range, but pack in rich sound and some of the pro features found on the flagship models.
An excellent choice for those getting into DJing! Available here in the UK or do a quick online search.
Electronic Music Culture Novelties - Various
If you're looking for a few stocking fillers, look no further than the store at Attack Mag!
We particularly like their range of enamel pin badges for under a tenner, but they also stock more serious gear if you're feeling generous.
GoPro HERO8 Black
The latest model HERO9 came out recently so you should find a deal on the '8'. Chances are you've taken your livestream game to the next level in 2020, and this 'HyperSmooth' camera will add a professional edge for users of OBS and similar streaming technology.
Our current preferred streaming setup takes the video from this GoPro and the audio through the EvermixBox4 which achieves amazing quality audio and pro level video.
Yes, it was always making our list! :-)
High quality audio, super-portable, and built to last. Give the gift of recording and livestreaming this Christmas for £115.
We'll be posting out orders right up to the 23rd December, and then we're back in early January to help you spend your Christmas money!
Thanks for reading and we hope you have a good holiday season break to end 2020!
