WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP?

The workshop will be held at Pirate Leeds on Wednesday 27 April from 6-8pm. Jamie Hartley, Crossfader’s founder and DJ tutor, will demonstrate ways to get creative on CDJs, approach set curation, and break down unique transitions.

After the demo, small breakout groups will be formed to allow you to practice these drills in small teams. Jamie will be on hand for one-to-one tuition to help you master these new skills.

There will also be an open B2B set, during which attendees will be welcome to jump on the decks, have a mix, and socialise. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet other DJs in your area and learn new skills. You’ll also get the chance to ask any questions you may have.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is tailored towards those who already know how to mix at a basic level. If you are interested in a workshop for beginners, sign up here.
