Warehouse 421 is organising a workshop for an afternoon of learning, followed by a chill lounge with Justine Perry and Simonne Jones in Abu Dhabi. The workshop will be divided into two sessions: the first one which will be a workshop presented by Justine Perry, where attendees will be able to discover and understand how DJing equipment works, how to set up and to play on digital gear and start showcasing your own sets of any music genre using basic mixing techniques.
The second session will be a Music Production Workshop, which will be presented by Simonne Jones. In this session, attendees will be able to expand the boundaries of their creative voice and knowledge of music production. They will also create a song with an industry experienced engineer/ producer.
