What are CDR Sessions?

Sessions begin with a 'masterclass' workshop where an established producer shares their career perspectives and production techniques. The event then blurs the boundary between audience and artist by inviting aspiring producers in the audience to submit their 'work in progress' tunes to be played in a DJ set of audience only submissions. This creates a unique opportunity for attendees to hear their music on a high quality club sound system, creating a safe environment for peer-to-peer feedback and learning, as well as the development of new collaborative relationships.


Approx 10 hours work per event, which will happen once every 4-8 weeks. Rate is £100-£200 per event delivered depending on experience.
