Influenced by his upbringing in Rio de Janeiro, mixtures of Baile Funk are often featured in his sets, however Folly Ghost's commitment is not to genres, but to creating a space for lust and delight.

2. Practice: EQing, basic mixing techniques, beatmatching, musical structure and effects.
3. Curating and recording your first set, DJ etiquette, how to get gigs/radio segments, how to charge, developing your creative process and setting goals for your career.
Intermediate students will have a customized plan, based on their needs and areas that they wish to focus.
