What you'll do
Step into the exclusive recording studio of hip hop DJ, composer, and producer Burt Blackarach and get a crash course in the art of DJing. You'll learn the basics of how to DJ—including handling vinyl, turntable 101, scratching, and more—according to your skill level. As you practice, gain insight into the industry with behind-the-scenes stories about magical production sessions, discover what it's like to tour the world performing as a DJ, and learn how Burt started his vinyl collection—14,000 records and counting. Finally, dig through Burt's personal collection of vinyl for free records to take home. There, you will find true gems from the 1940's - 1990's.
