Oct 19 – Samples, Effects and Loops

Saturday 19 Oct


Facebook Event


Experiment with samples, effects and loops with Canberra-based DJs Elyshia (Hei Zhi Ma 黑芝麻), Genie & Nick (Silkwerm)!

The one and only Genie will be leading an exploration into the world of effects. Meanwhile, Elyshia (Hei Zhi Ma 黑芝麻) has been incorporating spoken word poetry into her radio shows; she’ll be sharing on her approach to samples. Joining the Vessel gang, Nick (Silkwerm) will be sharing how he uses loops to get out of trouble, create something new and mix songs that are hard to mix!

You don’t need to bring anything for this workshops, but if there are samples and tracks you’d like to use, bring a USB prepared using rekordbox. All skill levels are welcome, but you will gain the most from this workshop if you have at least a beginner’s knowledge of using digital CDJs and a mixer.

Food will be provided! If you have specific dietary requirements, please drop us a message.
