Nosaj Thing rocks the AKAI MPD32

We just had to share this amazing performance by Nosaj Thing, recorded for KEXP. He uses the AKAI MPD32 with Ableton Live to great effect for a ten minute glitchy hiphop set, with his own music, including his awesome remix of Camel by Flying Lotus.

If you do buy an MPD, be prepared to upgrade the pads to improve sensitivity. This is easily done either with tape, or with widely available custom kits.
