The DJ II Program is a 6-week classic approach to advanced DJing launching Spring 2020.

DJ III will be launching in Fall 2020 in combination with DJ II, for a full 12 week program.

Picking up where our DJ I Program leaves off, our DJ II Program focuses on teaching you what it takes to design and deliver a truly world class DJ performance. Alongside seasoned DJ veterans, learn the advanced techniques of the turntable, CDJ, and DJ mixer, as well as how to create custom playlists, sets, and routines. Get in our amazing DJ booth and learn hands-on techniques of looping, sampling, doubles, offsets, chasing, using acapellas with the pros!

This course uses turntables, CDJs, DJ mixers, and laptops with either Recordbox, Serato, Traktor, or Virtual DJ.  Ableton DJs are also welcome!

Members of Slipmats Radio Crew lead the instruction in Slam Academy’s DJ II Program, alongside the DJ I Program instructor Kyle Goodrich (Kyle King).

Weekly Schedule

  • DJ II Week 1: Advanced Mixing Techniques with DVS and CDJs

    Learn and apply professional mixing techniques to your digital track library such as proper fader and EQ techniques for blending different styles of music, and applying effects within your mixer or DJ software to enhance transitions and blends.

  • DJ II Week 2: Sampling and Scratching

    Manipulate your songs with hands-on techniques of sampling and scratching.  Sample sounds directly into your DVS system and create sequences and patterns to practice in your routine.  Learn the cuts and transformers of classic DJs and integrate them into your set.

  • DJ II Week 3: Looping and Juggling

    Create and manipulate patterns of loops and sequences by juggling and chasing your songs together.  Evoke double drops and offsets in real-time to create new remixes of your own material on the fly.  Extend your own mixes and tracks indefinitely by manipulating your music in the mix.

  • DJ II Week 4: Advanced Cue Points
    Arrange cue points in your library and organize those cue points into sequences and patterns. Create loops and loop rolls based on these cue points.  Develop playlists of songs around these sequenced cue points, and build a routine that incorporates these elements.
  • DJ II Week 5: Live Remixing
    Blend and remix various loops, acapellas, instrumentals, and other sound material into a collage that is unmistakably yours.  Play with tones and samples in the same way that a jazz guitar player shreds.  Create something new out of various, surprising elements, to keep your set fresh and exciting.
  • DJ II Week 6: Finalize your Routine
    Play your routine with professional guidance and feedback on the big Slam soundsystem.  Refine your performance before recording it and sharing it with the world. Learn how to use that mix as a tool to get connected and booked in your local DJ community.
