Big thanks for Mantas for helping me to open new page in my life!

About me

I was interested in electronic music since I was teenager and always was interested in what dj's actually do behind the decks. My interest grew from year to year. Around five year ago I bought basic dj equipment and started learning to dj. After numerous attempts last year I have decided that I need someone to answer all the questions I had since I started. I accidentally met Mantas and decided to come for a demo lesson. He blew my mind completely and opened even deeper interest into the music. The only thing what I regret .... that after i finished the course I cannot handle djs making mistake at the parties. Big thanks for Mantas for helping me to open new page in my life!

I learnt a lot of technical skill and a lot about the music industry in general. Above all I've made friends for life and continue to want to grow and develop based on what I have learnt from the course.

About me

I was a competitive Irish dancer for 13 years and always wanted to Dj as I've a natural craving for rhythm. In high school I would burn CDs arranging tracks together that I loved and I would hand the CDs out to people in school signed Techno Mix. - Dj TNice (insert loads of heart doodles and stars with a sharpie pen). Fast forward to 9 years later and I was actually djing at gigs in London. Really cool journey when I look back! Since doing BADJ course I've had a lot of fun playing at house parties with friends and have also performed gigs, some include: Raw Silence with Los Suruba (Qube Project) Raw Silence (One Two Bar, Lithuania) HouseWife warm up for Lisa Loud (one of the first ever female house Djs) (93 Feet East) JackedIn (Secret Location), Remain In Light (RIL) (Secret Location) Carbon NYE Party (Galway, Ireland) Carbon Boxing Day (Galway, Ireland) Techno Tronik (The Shelter) Let's House and Techno (Horse and Groom; April) Let's House and Techno (Horse and Groom; August). Other: Mixes for various podcasts some include Deeper Sounds (now partnered with British Airways), In House Radio, and The Blackhole Sessions.
BADj was something I was very lucky to find. I came in thinking I would only need a few lessons to go from traktor to USB to vinyl - boy I was wrong! Day one I realised I was in for a long journey ahead and sticking it out was actually one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. I learnt a lot of technical skill and a lot about the music industry in general. Above all I've made friends for life and continue to want to grow and develop based on what I have learnt from the course.

About me

These guys are on another level! Mantas is a great mentor with a critical ear and a wealth of knowledge. The studio runs smoothly and they were happy to answer any questions I had about dj-ing, producing, events organising etc. Besides the technical side I enjoyed having more general conversations about the electronic music scene (or holidays/dogs/life!) with them as well. Their personalised approach made the experience very special.

I now feel I've gained the skills to match my vigour, drive and purpose through musically formative experiences.

About me

After applying myself to DJing for a while and trying to couple it with what I wanted to express through a wide range of music, I was looking for inspiration and direction to keep moving forward.
Lessons with Mantas have taken my perception of music to a new level. Pushing me to apply myself and learning how to listen in new ways. I now feel I've gained the skills to match my vigour, drive and purpose through musically formative experiences.

I'll be always grateful to this school and Mantas, my teacher (or as I like to call him "music Sifu" ), who made me achieve the freedom of expression through a superb way of teaching.
