You read it right, this Thursday 30th March PBLA will be hosting scratch legend Mix Master Mike for a guest workshop and Q&A. This student-only event will see the Beastie Boys turntablist perform to attendees before giving us an insight on his career so far, sharing some valuable tips and his personal experience. Following this, a handful of lucky students will showcase their scratching skills, before being taught some tricks and techniques from the legend himself. To attend, follow this Eventbrite link. This event is free and for PBLA students only.
Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Mix Master Mike has become a household name over the course of his career, having worked with highly influential hip-hop group The Beastie Boys and winning three consecutive DMC World Championships & The Grand Wizzard Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Turntablist Federation. He is credited with pioneering the ‘tweak-scratch’, whilst being hailed as ‘the greatest DJ in the world’ by USA Today. In 2017, Mix Master Mike will be joining Metallica on an Arena Tour as well as working on his Virtual Reality Project ‘Magma Chamber’. This is a once in a lifetime chance to learn from a true legend of the Hip-Hop & DJ worlds and as such is not an opportunity to be missed!
