About the event

Have you always wanted to try out DJ’ing? Don’t know where to start?

Here is your chance: get an in-depth look at the techniques and equipment behind DJ’ing. Enabling you to set yourself up at home and get ready to go! We’ll get you started with everything you need to know in this 1-day workshop. Even if you just want to give it a try and find out if DJ’ing is actually for you - this is the way to find out!

Program:

11 AM - 1 PM  Theory & Practice

Learn the interface of today’s most advanced DJ’ing software Rekordbox, which gives you all the control needed to start mixing with your own tracks (you can bring your own music to practice with. We’ll have a look at how DJ’ing actually works, breaking down the patterns of songs and learning how to use the structure of dance music to create seamless transitions. As soon as possible, we’ll jump into a first round of hands-on practice!

Lunchbreak

The Summer House’s fabulous kitchen provides an excellent lunch to help digest the morning’s theory information.

2 PM - 4 PM  Practice & Theory

After a quick recap we’ll go straight into the practice, so you’ll get to hone your own mixing skills. We’ll provide various stations with different sorts of DJ-gear for you to practice on. You’ll get your own experience and will be able to create mixes with your own (or provided) music, be able to ask any questions and get assistance by the teacher. As you gain understanding, we’ll introduce more concepts of adjusting BPM, Beat-Matching and mixing in harmonic key.

About your Teacher:

Leopold aka DJ Deku has been mixing for over 10 years. Starting out at his local university radio, he soon got into collecting and spinning vinyl, leading him to start his own club nights in Cologne. A move to Berlin inspired more musical expansion and eventually lead to travels all over the world, before finally settling in South East Asia. Now he’s focused mainly on Ecstatic Dance events, which are conscious, substance-free dance parties.

What previous students say:

Guin:

Leo has an incredible gift for breaking down a fluid process into individual steps, making a steep learning curve seem like one easy step at a time! As well as being knowledge based, lessons with Leo were exactly what DJing should be… playful and FUN!!

Lek:

Leo not only teaches me how to mix music beautifully but also helps me explore the into the profound layers of music, including its history, stories, and subcultures. This has been an excellent starting point for my DJ journey, allowing me to dive deeper into the world of music. Also, Leo's intriguing taste in music has also been a significant source of inspiration for me!
