Legendary DJ/Producer Laidback Luke announced that he will be teaming up with Digital DJ Tips to release a brand new online course titled “Laidback Luke’s Bootlegs, Mashups, & Re-edits, which will be made available to the public on Sept. 29.
The course will feature 41 over-the-shoulder lessons conducted by the artist and teach aspiring DJs how to make exclusive, special versions of songs that big-name DJs typically make before their DJ sets, in order to give them something completely original to play at their gigs.
Following the success of last year’s course titled, “Laidback Luke’s Creative DJing Course,” it became the first of its kind for this type of collaboration and demanded a follow-up.
“Bootlegs, mashups, and re-edits have always been a part of what DJs do, and what I have done, and I have taught many DJs and producers some of the skills in this course privately over the past 20 years. However, this is the first time I have put all of that knowledge in one place. The team at Digital DJ Tips really pushed me to dig deep into why I do things the way I do, and helped me to structure the learning so it will be of most use to all students, whether complete beginners to DJing and production or people who feel they would benefit from being shown how it is really done by the pros.”– Laidback Luke
“DJs often think that getting started in music production is too hard, and so they don’t start! But the truth is that by making your own versions of other people’s music, whether simple edits or full-on mashups and bootlegs, you can tap into what you already know as a DJ about what works on the dancefloor, and get started down the road to making your own remixes and tracks. We are especially proud to have been able to navigate the current situation with COVID-19 and successfully make this course in 2020, at a time when many DJs have few gigs and so may benefit from the chance to learn skills such as these, that will serve them well when lockdowns finally ease.”– Phil Morse, founder, and CEO of Digital DJ Tips
To celebrate its release, Digital DJ Tips will be offering a 35% discount off the original price of $297 during its launch week. To receive the discount, those interested can sign-up here.
