Watch: How to Clean a CDJ After Burning Man

Outdoor events can be stressful for DJs and dangerous for electronics. Exposure to heat, dirt, or moisture can ruin expensive equipment. Despite the risks, Pioneer DJ gear enthusiast Christian Jackson recently rented out multiple CDJ-2000NXS setups for use at the Burning Man festival.

The dust in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, where the event is held, is harmful to electronics. However, Jackson was able to clean and restore his CDJs to their original condition. The Seattle native filmed the process and explained each step in this tutorial video.
