Refuge Worldwide and Femme Bass Mafia present DJ-tech workshop

Workshop hosted by Monibi at Gretchen, Saturday 9 September.

By Staff

'Know Your DJ Tech!' is a workshop that aims to teach participants everything they need to know about setting up DJ equipment and troubleshooting, tracing the signal flow of DJ setup from sound source to destination.

Aimed at those with previous experience DJing, this workshop will answer questions such as: how do I connect a CDJ, turntable, or microphone to a DJ mixer? Which cable do I use for what? Why can't I hear anything? What is signal flow? What is stereo vs. mono? What is digital vs analogue? Why are there so many digital file formats?

Femme Bass Mafia mentor, DJ and producer Monibi will be your host. Alongside her artistic output and regular touring, Monibi has been working as a sound engineer for live music venues, festivals and clubs since 2016, making her ideally placed to guide participants through the technical side of DJing.

To host the workshop, we're teaming up with Femme Bass Mafia, a Berlin-based mentorship program dedicated to women, transgender and non-binary people for the learning and practising of DJing in a safer space. Priority will be given to FLINTA applicants with limited access to the music industry & music technology education.

'Know Your DJ Tech!' will take place on Saturday 9 September from 12:00-15:00 at Gretchen, Obentrautstr. 19-21. Read more info and apply here.
