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.

I am a professional DJ with more than 20 years of career on the international scene. I was born in Spain and lived for 3 years in the UK. There I graduated in Music Business & Management (University of Brighton), and I turned my passion for music into my profession. I have been living in Berlin for 7 years and I regularly play in famous clubs such as Sisyphos, Golden Gate, Kit Kat club and festivals such as “Plötzlich am Meer“, “Feel“ or “Moyn Moyn“. In addition, I am a promoter and organizer of electronic music events, I contract artists and I manage my own record label: Monog Records. If you want to see some of my work, take a look at my:
