New 13 inch Macbook Pro USB C Hub Suggestion for CDJ's in HID mode

Any DJ's on here using the newer 13 inch Macbook Pro with CDJ's in HID mode? What USB C hub do you use or recommend? Any bad experiences?

Currently my setup consists of,

2 CDJ-2000NXS2

DJM-S9 Mixer

1TB Samsung T5 SSD

2017 13 inch non-touch bar Macbook Pro

J5 Create Non-Powered USB C Hub

Biggest issue currently is that I use Serato Tone because of the lack of ports but I am hoping someone has field tested a better hub that can handle having multiple units plugged in reliably.

Previously I was using the HyperDrive USB C Hub which is being sold as a premium Non-Powered Hub but I experienced a-lot of dropouts when plugging into more than one port at once. 

with the J5 I have had no trouble and have been using it for about 2 months now (I gig about 4 to 5 days a week minimum) and have not had any issues other then the fact that since I don't have enough ports I have been using the CDJ's with Serato Tone.

If any of you have suggestion please advise. I am hoping this thread also helps many others since technology is moving forward and USB C is being used in more and more computers.
