What you'll do

Become a real DJ and discover the best secrets of the Berlin electronic scene at the hands of one of its experts.

Come to my professional music studio located in the legendary Arttraktiv Music House. There, you will be greeted with a coffee and I will introduce you to the technical equipment with which I develop my professional work as a DJ and producer.

First, I will tell you the history of Berlin club culture from its origins (the fall of the wall) to today. All of this, supported with unique information and videos where the artists who promoted the movement give their testimony.

You will learn the basic concepts of the art of "DJing". Additionally, with knowledge of the techniques to mix with vinyl and CDJ, you will synchronize beats and discover how to plan your own personal DJ session while you play with your classmates using the "back-to-back" method (b2b). Of course, we will record your set and send it to you so you can remember it and continue practicing at home.

This experience can not end without visiting one of the most infamous bars in Berlin. There we will enjoy the evening and I will share with you my most personal tips and tricks so that you can blow up any dance floor.

My friend and me were already very interested in music, but didn't know anything about techno and the techno culture. We got an amazing overview and understanding about the whole culture and also learn to DJ which was really fun ;-). I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in the techno culture in Germany and if you want a small glimpse of the routine of a DJ!

Booking this experience with Bruno was one of the best ideas I have ever had! I am so grateful to have come across Bruno on my trip to Berlin, and I am so thankful that he has chosen to share his talent and passion for music and DJing here with other travelers. It was an unforgettable experience that I would recommend a million times over, and I would be thrilled to meet with Bruno again for another lesson, or to hear him play a set somewhere in Berlin :) Bruno was kind, communicative, punctual, professional, FUN, flexible, enthusiastic, positive, incredibly talented.. I couldn't say enough good things. For me his music and his taste in music is exceptional and I love that he is open to work with and is successful with whatever genre of electronic music. I got to take some video of my beat matching and somehow he chosen exactly the music he knew I would like and made me look damn good with the transitions. He is super enthusiastic about his work, many impressive projects and music, and being a single girl traveler his vibe and energy were very welcome and appreciated. He is not only a clear, patient, kind teacher, but also an amazing human being who I feel grateful to have met and truly enjoyed spending time with. Thank you for a great day and a great experience Bruno! I hope to host you in Stockholm sometime :)

Bruno was incredible friendly and helpful, and you can just feel the passion he has for his craft. He moves at the pace you want to go but also challenges you on the way. A great introduction to Berlin!

I booked this experience as my husband's birthday gift since he really enjoys electronic music and he loved it! I tagged along and even though I am not huge fan of this type of music, I really enjoyed the historical aspect of the experience and the hands on creating some music part of it. Would definitely recommend!

I had the BEST time at Bruno's DJ experience. He's a great guy with amazing skills and lots of knowledge about the Berlin techno scene. I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend's birthday. She absolutely loved the workshop and wouldn't stop talking about it for days. If you're looking for the real Berlin experience, Bruno's workshop is a must! ... and we even got to keep a recording of our own little track. :D
