Week.1 (DJ Skills)
As an induction and entry to Music Production we dedicated the first week to DJing Skills. Exploring different genres of music, DJ equipment, bpm patterns, DJ techniques and performing. Each young person produced a playlist of their choice, planned their mix and produced a recording.
We have compiled snippets of the best mixes from each mix. Enjoy
