Etsy is a land of goddamn enchantment. You want to want to cover your wall with a sticker of a DJing unicorn? They got you. Unicorns don’t even exist, but I bet that one mixes better than your average celebrity DJ. *cough* Sasha Grey *cough*
Anyway, what started with a random late night search for DJ Unicorn, turned into a multi-hour cruise through the odd corners of Etsy. We found things. Some ridiculous, some pretty awesome, some that had us scratching our heads.
- Slide 1 of 9
btbox – Aluminum Unibody MIDI Controller ($210+)
We don’t know if it works as awesome as it looks, but this is a MIDI controller we’d have no problem connecting to our setups for nothing more than its sweet design and the nostalgia of getting to jam on old-school arcade buttons again. It’s hand-built and “meant to be played hard.” You can pick them up in black & white or the multi-color configuration shown above.

Lego DJ Necklace ($13.25)
They probably sold a lot of these after the Lego movie came out.
“I never told you my name, it’s Wildstyle”
“Are you a DJ or something?”
- Slide 3 of 9
DJ Themed Pyrex Kitchen Pot ($30+)
Not even sure what to say here. It seems like the sort of thing you’d give to your dad after he quit DJing to raise a family. Like, “Hey, you really used to be awesome at the music thing, but man, now you’re really good at mac n’ cheese.”
- Slide 4 of 9
Retro Art Deco DJ Prints ($27)
We’re suckers for minimalism. Not strictly DJ related, but dope nonetheless. Sets of 8” x 10” prints ready to frame.
- Slide 5 of 9
Reclaimed Vinyl Wall Clock ($29.21)
Apparently all the cool kids now are into vinyl. We know a few old-school heads that would cringe at the idea of chopping up perfectly good records, but we have to say, these look pretty sharp.
- Slide 6 of 9
MIDI Controller Mouse Pad ($8.99)
We don’t know who. We don’t know when. But we do know that someone has come home loaded after a night at the club, and spent more time than they should have, pounding on one of these trying to figure out why their MIDI controller is broken.
- Slide 7 of 9
DJ Turntable Cufflinks ($48)
There may not be enough DJs who wear suits, to wear all the variations on DJ-inspired cufflinks we found. We do know these were probably the cleanest, nicest pair we saw. Plus they’re subtle. They’ don’t scream “Look at me! I play records!” They’re discreet. Not real silver, otherwise we’d be spending our lunch money on them right now.
- Slide 8 of 9
8GB Drum Machine Flash Drive ($22.99)
With 8GB of storage, it’s not inconceivable that a guy could show up to a gig, say “Let me plug my drum machine in” without a hint of irony, and proceed to rock from a thumb-sized drum machine. We’re impressed with the fact they designed the drive cap to attach to the chain when it’s off. Cause having half a drum machine would suck.
- Slide 9 of 9
Custom Swarovski DJ Headphones ($500)
You know who wears crystal studded headphones to DJ? Paris Hilton, that’s who. You wanna know why? Cause there isn’t a real DJ alive who would spend $500 on a (maybe) $200 pair of ear buckets because they know the damn things are going to break way before they get their money’s worth for the $200, let alone the $500 these cost. These are what you buy strippers named Diamond. “OMG! They’re sparkly! Just like meeeeee!!!”
