Atlantic City, N.J. — Club and mobile DJs… are you looking to make your sets more memorable, or even completely unique? Are you as musically prepared as you can be for your DJ performances?
If you have room for improvement or if you just want to get an edge on the competition, you’ll want to take in this pair of information-filled DJ Expo seminars presented by DJ Adam Dutch.
At DJ Expo — set for Aug. 13-16 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. — the Maryland-based performance DJ/mash-up artist will help take your sets to new heights with these two sessions:
Tuesday, August 14: Mash-Ups: Playing & Producing
Need to freshen up your live performance set? Do you have an idea for two songs that go well together, something that other DJs need to play? This seminar will teach you how to integrate pre-existing mash-ups into sets, as well as composing live mash-ups using different material. Helmed by Maryland-based DJ/mash-up artist Adam Dutch, this session will discuss production techniques, where to find source material, music theory, song-construction concepts, and a workshop-style improvised mashup production.
Wednesday, August 15: Music Theory for DJs
Are you struggling with counting beats, phrasing, and making songs sound harmonically consistent? Are you due for some next-level musical education? In this unique Expo session, Adam Dutch will explain and demonstrate how to use rhythms, key signatures, musical notes, melodies, and other music-theory concepts to improve the way you listen to music and, ultimately, how you play music. Dutch will show you how to incorporate these concepts into your toolbox of mixing skills. Some audience participation is encouraged in this workshop-style seminar.
