Toucan Productions’ Secret Shop DJ livestream series
For those missing the pumping beats and dynamic ebb and flow of a knockout DJ set, Toucan Productions has started to livestream weekly DJ sets from its facility in Oklahoma City using a festival-worthy setup that includes nearly 100% Elation lighting gear. Dubbed Secret Shop and hosted on Twitch TV, the livestream broadcasts feature multiple 45-minute DJ sets. Arvol Dingess and Parker Shore, both of Toucan, have been instrumental in getting the Secret Shop livestreams up and running. Toucan’s Secret Shop setup is impressive and would be a fitting design for any EDM rave. Twenty four Elation Rayzor Q7™ LED moving heads line the upstage truss as top border across the video wall while 8 Smarty Max™ hybrid moving heads populate a midstage truss (an earlier incarnation of the setup used 8 Artiste DaVinci™ LED moving heads on the midstage.) Four floor-based DaVinci’s provide silhouette light while Platinum Beam Extreme™ moving heads are spread throughout the rig. Two other Oklahoma City Production companies have lent their support to the project, CNS Productions supplying cameras, cabling and switching; and LaserWolf FX providing laser projectors along with pixel beam bars for a DJ-surround laser cage.
