The competitions just keep coming! Ever fancied trying your hand at DJing but need a bit of help? Well, the Mix ‘n’ Scratch Lab from 815 Entertainment is aimed at you. Basically, it’s a DJ academy offering expert tuition to DJs of all standards, whether you’re an absolute beginner or an already accomplished DJ looking to take their skills to the next level.

The Mix ‘n’ Scratch Lab was set up in Dubai by DJ and tutor Kirk Mannion, who revealed there’s a growing demand for DJ courses in the region.

“As the club scene in the region continues to expand, more and more people are becoming interested in the art of DJing. We’re taking a healthy number of enquiries every week,” said Kirk. “It’s something we’re fully expecting to become more popular too. Some people who come to us have never stepped behind decks before and just fancy giving it a go, others are keen to launch a DJ career and others still are just a bit rusty and want to improve their skills. But more than anything, all the courses and sessions are fun.”

Kirk is offering an eight-week beginner’s course to one lucky Hype reader – valued at Dhs2,800. The lucky winner will spend two hours a week learning the foundation technical, physical and musical skills necessary to become a competent DJ.
