Bristol Women in Music in association with Saffron Records presents: Mix Nights
Mix Nights is an informal teaching series working with women in Bristol to develop DJ skills in an encouraging, safe and welcoming environment.
How Does It Work?
Mix Nights is an eight week course consisting of eight lots of two hour evening classes, where our DJ mentors teach the basics of mixing on both vinyl and CDJs. The classes are small, we can only take on a maximum of 8 protégées per course, making it a comfortable space in which to work and learn. The current run of classes are designed for absolute beginners, or those who have some basic skills but want support in building confidence. Current mentors include the very best of Bristol female DJs; Daisy Moon, Em Williams and Danielle Doobay. The weekly workshops are also an opportunity to learn more about the business of being a DJ. Our mentors give advice on wider music issues, for example how to put on your own club night, how to get DJ bookings, how to record a sample mix and so on.
Mix Nights Showcase
At the end of each course of workshops we host a Mix Nights Showcase at The Love Inn, where all new course graduates get a chance to take to the decks and put into practise what they’ve learned in front of an audience. The Showcase nights are free entry before 10pm and open to the public. For details on the next showcase event, head to the Bristol Women in Music Facebook page
