Refuge Worldwide launches intermediate DJ workshop series with Resident Advisor

Applications for the full course are now open, deadline on 5th of September.

By Staff

Last July, we began our collaboration with Resident Advisor to launch a series of 13 workshops for beginner DJs. 

Participants were led by the likes of Sarina Farina, Floyd Lavine, CCL, Palms Trax, rRoxymore and Call Super, spending a year learning the basics of DJing under successful mentors with years of experience. 

This October, we’ll be hosting the next instalment of free workshops, this time for intermediate DJs looking to build on their skill set and fine-tune methods they have already picked up. As was the case for the beginners’ course, priority will be given to minority and underprivileged groups.

For this instalment, we’ve recruited Juba, Nick Höppner and Mor Elian to lead the exciting new round of workshops. All the workshops will take place in October at our studio (Weserstraße 166, Berlin), before wrapping up at the RA office in Friedrichshain. At RA, there will be a Q and A with Whitney Wei, (Editor in Chief) and Kazim Rashid (Chief Creative and Brand Officer). This will be followed by a networking event with the RA team where participants will have the opportunity to share experiences of the music industry and play B2B.

The entire series of workshops will take place on the following dates: 

Monday 10 October, 6 pm - 8 pm with Juba at Refuge Worldwide

The first workshop will cover mixing techniques: EQs, spin backs, effects, radio vs DJ mixing and mixing different genres. 

 Monday 17 October, 6 pm - 8 pm with Nick Höppner at Refuge Worldwide

A deep dive into Rekordbox as well as creating playlists and organising music. 

 Monday 24 October, 6 pm - 8 pm with Mor Elian at Refuge Worldwide 

A practice B2B session at Refuge Worldwide. 

 Monday 31 October, 4 pm - 6 pm at the RA office with the RA team

There will be a final workshop with RA staff on artistic development & navigating the music industry, followed by a B2B session with participants and RA staff.
