      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)
