Zac Campbell, aspiring producer and deadmau5 fan, was stabbed three times and robbed of his DJ equipment after leaving his set at a DJ competition. Hospitalized and empty-handed, deadmau5 stepped in and helped the guy out. The Canadian producer, after hearing that Zac wished to become a producer himself one day, sent him \”some upgrades\” so that he\’d have one less thing to worry about during his recovery.

And by \”some upgrades\” we mean a 13\” Macbook, Ableton 9Traktor Kontrol S4, and Native Instruments Komplete 10.

Long story short, Zac Campbell had a pretty shitty night recently… Ill spare you the details, but he was DJing in a small club for a DJ competition, and after he left his gig, gear in hand… he was attacked with a knife, stabbed 3 times, bitten, and beat the fuck up. All because some asshole wanted his DJ gear. Hospitalized…. but he is on the mend now, and is recovering well.

he’s been a fan, member of the horde for quite some time… and we look after our own, so… after eyeballing the gear you had, we’ve decided to get you some upgrades to help you back on your feet….
