This Berlin-based artist makes LEGO turntables and synthesizers

Australian graphic and web designer Arran Hearn was addicted to building LEGOs in his early childhood, and so it was with this passion in mind that he opened the doors at innovative Berlin-based company called Numode. Hearn’s venture creates custom LEGO kits in an effort to merge his passions for hip-hop, active turntablism, and the venerable building blocks.

Numode creates miniature replicas of the classic Technics SL1200 turntable and mixer, as well as the Roland TR-808, TB-303, MPC-2000XL and Akai MPC.

And while Numode is not yet an official LEGO partner and is designed by Hearn himself, we surely admire the attention to detail. For each set comes completes with a color-printed instruction booklet and custom-made, grooved discs that certainly mimic the best look and feel of vinyl on the most similar small-scale possible.
