This group has spent 2 months missing after-work drinks and waking up early on weekends to come here and learn the tricks of the trade.  They’ve spent 50+ hours putting their blood, sweat, and tears (figuratively) into these mixes and they’re ready for an audience!

We’ll be at Good Life Boston on Monday 5/4 from 7 – 11p.m. so get ready to drink, dance, and enjoy! Here’s the lineup:

7 – 7:30: Kenneth
7:30 – 8: Kristen
8 – 9: Darius x Sleepy Coke
9 – 9:30: Joey
9:30 – 10: Freddie
10 – 10:30: Brendan

Incase you haven’t noticed, we’ve been turning out awesome DJs and producers like Starbucks turns out coffee. If you want to get in on this, NOW IS THE TIME!! We’ve got some classes starting soon including brand new summer schedules! To sign up and join the ranks of Boston’s finest DJs and producers, contact Sarah!

 

Summer-Friendly Schedules!

Believe it or not, it’s already April. School projects are coming to a close, essays and papers are piling up, finals are moving closer to the front of your mind, and you can’t wait for the long summer months. Vacationing with family, laying on the beach, barbecuing in the backyard… learning how to DJ and produce?

This summer, Mmmmaven is offering new schedules for those with a little too much time in the day, but not enough days in the summer. We’ve taken our 50-hour DJ Program and our 60-hour Production Certification Program and transformed them into two week intensives, Monday through Friday, in July and August.

Each program will run July 6th-10th and 20th-24th, or August 3rd-7th and 17th-21st from 10am until 4pm for DJs or 5pm for producers. Contact Sarah for any questions and to get signed up!

Reading the Room: a Lesson in Crowd Literacy (4/17)

So, you’ve taken the classes, you bought the equipment, you know your way around the Serato box, you’re ready to be a give a great performance, right?

Wrong. You’ve only fought part of the the battle. The other part of performance is knowing how to read the room. You don’t want to be “that guy” who plays Kygo when the room is ready to turn up, and Skrillex when everyone just wants to chill. It’s important for a DJ to understand his/her audience, and this Friday, Fens can teach you how.

Fens is a Boston resident and Connecticut native who’s been appearing at popular clubs, concert venues, and parties for about four years now. His experience with instrumental music shines through in the musicality of his tracks and the obvious thought he puts into the way everything goes into his music.

[…] his forward thinking bass music and cutting edge techno and house sounds are a perfect companion to head-bobbing and dancing like nobody’s watching.

Fens is the co-founder of Banana Peel Records. He has performed in venues throughout Boston and New York such as Middlesex Lounge, Goodlife, House of Blues, Le Poisson Rouge, and Brighton Music Hall, and has opened for artists like Objekt, Pangea, L-Vis 1990, Christian Martin, Machinedrum, SBTRKT and many more. You can even catch him on Wednesday nights from 7-9p.m. on WZBC 90.3FM.

Get a taste of his music with his first installment of CSC’s new mix series:

This Friday, April 17, at 7pm Fens will be teaching a free workshop at Mmmmaven on Reading the Room: a Lesson in Crowd Literacy. For all you performers out there, you really won’t want to miss it! Reserve your place on eventbrite.
