Globe-trotting DJ Seth Troxler would seem to agree with the latter, considering he’s just endorsed the brand new luxury suitcase line from European Horizn Studios.
It might seem like a bold move, especially given Rimowa’s clout and reputation, but even after a quick glance at the up-and-coming luggage specs, there does appear to be a pretty convincing argument for the pivot.
Horizon’s slick black Pro Model ST DJ Case is not only good-looking, but it’s also durable, made with an aerospace-grade polycarbonate hard shell and built with its audience in mind. The suitcase features multiple sets of padded internal bags to keep pedals, controllers, and accessories protected and even has a removable record stand for DJs to set up on the fly. As Troxler points out, the bag also has an optional GPS tracker — so you’ll probably see fewer DJs complaining on Twitter about their lost luggage. If that’s not a win for everyone we don’t know what is.

Fox News’ Sean Hannity took to the streets of London to conduct brief interviews with those protesting President Trump’s earlier arrival in Great Britain. Hannity’s questions to those rallying against Trump — “why are you here today?” and “why don’t you like the President of the United States?” — invited a multitude of answers, including one from none other than house tastemaker, Seth Troxler. The producer had been playing a protest party at Soho Radio, where guests proceeded to join demonstrators afterward.
In response to Hannity’s inquiry as to what Troxler was specifically “resisting,” Troxler promptly responded “fascism,” but didn’t stop there. When Hannity followed up by asking “who’s a fascist,” he unhesitatingly answered by calling Hannity a fascist to his face, making for a must see TV moment. Sadly, cameras panned away from the scene before viewers could hear anything else from the exchange, but we have a feeling Troxler had a lot more to say.
President Trump visited Europe this past week, and more or less across the board left a path of destruction in his wake. During his stop in Great Britain, Trump was met with widespread protests. Obviously, Sean Hannity decided to go abroad with the president just in case he need a snack and bottled milk wasn’t
