What you'll do
Step into the exclusive recording studio of hip hop DJ, composer, and producer Burt Blackarach. You'll learn the basics of DJing—including handling vinyl, transitioning songs, scratching, and more—according to your skill level. Gain insight into the industry with behind-the-scenes stories about magical production sessions, discover what it's like to tour the world performing, and learn how Burt started his vinyl collection—14,000 records and counting. Finally, dig through his personal collection of vinyl for free records to take home.

As a DJ, I’ve spun in cities all over the world, including London, Tokyo, Lisbon, and Paris opening for iconic artists like Jay Z, Nas, Public Enemy and Jurassic 5. My scratching skills can be heard on countless major label albums, top movie soundtracks, and national commercials.
