from the 90s until today

we give you 30 years of our dj experience

DJ WEEK

Nowadays, it’s no longer just about mixing two records together. Rather, it’s about controlling the technology. That’s why it’s important to understand which buttons and sliders make sense and which are better ignored. With us you learn on club standard equipment.

Whether digital or analog, here you will learn everything about technology and equipment which DJs work with. We will teach you technical basics on CDJs, controllers and turntables, and special features on mixers. As well as fundamental terms like effects, sound characteristics, frequency, amplitude, phase or interference to elevate your DJing. We will also go into crowd reading and how to create mixtapes/podcasts. 

You will learn how club-oriented electronic music is constructed, how it works, what you can do with keys and how to deal with beat or quantization patterns.

On the 5th day we will practice mixing under real conditions in the club. (Subject to change if Corona makes it impossible).

In 5 consecutive days (a total of 25 hours) you will have enough time to play, try out effects, learn to lose respect for the technique and become confident.

Hands on Vinyl

The fascination for the record is unbroken. Vinyl is sexier than ever before. Our hands-on vinyl coaching provides the essential, basic knowledge that you need to play records. We’ll explain how records work, how to use them as a DJ and what equipment you will need.

We also discuss the choice of a suitable turntable: does it really have to be a Technics? We explain the correct setting and how to find a suitable cartridge.

Vinyl knows no SYNC button. So if you want to DJ with records, you have to master mixing without technical aids. The coaching teaches the basics and shows strategies that you can use when practicing at home, so you can quickly improve your skills.

“It’s about music! Not one music style is better than the other, not one music style is more truly than the other. The whole thing is based on respect.

It’s all about respect, respect to the music, respect to the DJs, respect to the crowd and respect to each other.

It’s all music, music never separates people!“
(Carl Cox)
