of their favorite vinyl recordings being played
on the MT5 Turntable.

McIntosh hosted a listening event for the new MT5 Turntable at New York City's historic (and Jimi Hendrix-founded) Electric Lady Studios. The evening featured a variety of music played on the MT5, accompanied by discussion from the playlist's curators - Questlove and John Varvatos.

The night's playlist included:

  • Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
  • The Police - King of Pain
  • Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
  • Beastie Boys - Shake Your Rump
  • Guns N Roses - Sweet Child Of Mine
  • Prince - Lady Cab Driver
  • Willie Dixon - Spoonful
  • Stevie Wonder - Superwoman
  • David Brubeck - Take Five
  • Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine (to which Questlove said "I've been listening to the song for 40+ years & I'm just hearing it now!")
  • Gary Clark, Jr. - When My Train Pulls In
