The AKKS DJ course teaches you everything you need to get started as a DJ!

You get an introduction to assembly and use of the DJ kit, as well as the different functions and settings on the mixer. You also learn about BPM, mixing and beat mixing. Beat mixing is the art of mixing songs so their tempos match.

The course is held at Det Akademiske Kvarter. You will use their in-house DJ kit during the course, mainly Pioneer CDJ2000 media players and Pioneer DJM800 mixer.

Examples of suitable music genres are house, techno, trance, dubstep, drum & bass, trap, grime, EDM and hardstyle.
