    MasterClass Announces Armin van Buuren to Teach Dance Music

    Sign in to follow this  

    MasterClass, the premier online education platform, announced today that legendary DJ Armin van Buuren is teaching his first ever online class. The class is open for pre-enrollment starting today at www.masterclass.com/avb. Enrollment in the class is $90, or $180 per year for unlimited access to all new and existing MasterClasses with the All-Access Pass. Each enrollment option can also be given as a gift.

    Armin van Buuren, one of the most influential figures in the global dance scene, has topped the Billboard charts, attracted tens of millions of worldwide listeners to his weekly radioshow “A State of Trance,” and landed a record-setting five No. 1 DJ awards from DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs. The Grammy-nominated artist’s work has spanned major evolutions in dance music, from spinning with vinyl in small clubs to headlining global dance festivals.

    In his 20th year as an artist, van Buuren will share insights about what it takes to get established in the competitive and ever-changing business of dance music. Students will get an intimate look into the artist’s creative process as van Buuren creates a track from scratch specifically for his MasterClass. Aspiring producers will learn his pillars for becoming a world-class DJ—production, performance, and promotion. The class dives into the more technical aspects of producing, including mixing, arranging, and building dance-worthy drops.

    “Nowadays, to be a successful artist and DJ, it’s not enough to just know how to spin records. If you want to stand out, you need to make your own records, write music, and make remixes and mashups for your DJ sets. I’m truly excited to share my passion for producing music and DJing in my MasterClass,” said Armin van Buuren, MasterClass instructor. “It’s the first time I get to show you my secrets and tips, and everything I’ve learned in my twenty years in this business.”

     

    “Armin is an international icon of dance music. Despite his musical genius, he has stayed humble, hard-working, earnestly connected to his fans, and has never lost sight of the joy in his work. His passion for teaching is infectious. There really is an art and science to making people dance — it has to do with sculpting sound, mixing, and arranging songs for maximum impact — that’s Armin’s mastery, and he’s certainly one of the best to ever do it,” said David Rogier, CEO and Co-Founder of MasterClass.

    MasterClass is an online education company which provides classes from world-renowned instructors, making it possible for anyone to learn from the best. Each class offers a unique learning experience which includes video lessons from the instructor, interactive exercises, course materials, peer interaction, and more. All classes are available online for individual purchase at www.masterclass.com.

      Since breaking out in 2015, Odd Mob has had a musical evolution like no other. The moniker of Brisbane producer Harry Hope, the project has grown and developed into one of the most respective electronic acts, not only amongst fans, but also amongst his peers. Announcing today the release of his long awaited debut album, Odd Mob releases the very first instalment with the genre bending single ‘All Of Your Heart’. Mesmerising in both charisma and production, the single is a testament to Harry’s creative vision, and his continued ability to create dynamic productions whilst forging his own path stylistically.
       
      Meshing dreamy pop vocals of the talented Jordan Leser, together with a nuanced bassline, ‘All Of Your Heart’ is a clear standout from Harry’s previous works. Giving insight on how the track came together, Harry explains “‘All Of Your Heart’ started as quite a melancholic tune, but then I had the idea to simply pitch them up six semitones. What resulted was a burst of pop-euphoria. I instantly decided to change the chords and the basis of the tune was formed.”
       
      Co-written by Alexander Burnett (the famed songwriter/producer known for collaborations with major artists including DJ Snake, Hayden James, Flight Facilities, Elderbrook and more), it comes as no surprise, that the lyrics and messaging behind the song are just as intoxicating as the production. Describing his own take on the lyrics, Harry further explains, “The part of the verse got stuck in my head  was "give me all your heart". I really think many people these days are quite reluctant to give somebody their everything. Social media gives us so many false options. Loving somebody with everything you have is the most rewarding experience you can have.”
       
      Whilst it was the hit single ‘Is It A Banger?’ that catapulted Odd Mob into the mainstream and triple j’s Hottest 100, Harry has always produced a wide range of electronic music. With a string of original works including; ‘Down For Love’ which had huge triple j support, ‘Into You feat. Starley’ becoming a 2017 club anthem holding the #1 position on the ARIA club chart for seven straight weeks, and ‘Intrinsic’ which bookmarked a turning point in production for Odd Mob with support pouring in from all corners of the globe from the likes of Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Don Diablo and JAUZ to name a few. Never downplaying his club roots, Harry has continued to develop various singles, an EP, and an entire ‘Oddities’ brand to experiment with various elements of his highly skilled production. A shining example of his club work, was the release of the electro house thumper ‘Gassed Up’, quickly catching the attention of DJ Snake and Jauz, transforming the tune into a festival anthem the world over. And with further remixes for the likes of A-Trak, Motez, Starley, POOLCLVB,  and Lorde, it is clear that he is at the top of his game.
       
      Taking on his first headline tour of Australia in 2018, Harry played a string of intimate venues across the country to explore and develop songs for his forthcoming debut album, with the tour aptly titled ‘Testing Grounds’. Having been recently signed to APA (alongside of roster of 50 Cent, Tyga, Azealia Banks) Odd Mob is ready to take his music global, with his first run of dates in North America to be announced later this year.
       
      ‘All Of Your Heart’ is out now on Tinted Records, in conjunction with Spinnin, Parlophone/FFRR and Kontor Records.

      Australia's biggest DJ export, Timmy Trumpet, is excited to reach brand new horizons this March. The Sydney born trumpeter, DJ and producer is getting ready to make history by becoming the first live instrumentalist to DJ from space! To celebrate this momentous occasion, Timmy is releasing a brand-new track, High. The enthusiastic effort is a collaboration with Aussie hip hop legends Bliss n Eso and US soul singer Lee Fields.   

      Timmy Trumpet is the acclaimed Australian jazz musician turned dance music extraordinaire. Always respectfully nodding to his classical roots, Timmy is a live instrumentalist with multiple Club Chart and Beatport number ones, not to mention over half a billion streams for his massive hit Freaks featuring Savage. 
       
      Since bursting onto the scene, Australian hip hop project Bliss N Eso have racked up millions of Spotify streams for an array of pop and urban infused hits with integral messages of positivity. Their informal and sincere approach to hip hop has translated into multiple ARIA number one albums and gold and platinum records. 

      As the track will inevitably sky rocket, we look forward to Timmy’s space premiere at the World Club Dome ‘Zero Gravity’ event, made possible by Big City Beats and the European Space Agency. As the part of the project Timmy joins fellow dance music pioneers Armin Van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, and Steve Aoki.  On the heavily anticipated March 25, Timmy will lift off from France, undertaking 16 parabolic flights each lasting 22 seconds as the vessel bounces off our atmosphere. 

      “Getting the opportunity to play my music up there is an honour and something that I've dreamed of since I was a kid. I've loved Bliss n Eso's work for years and when we started working together I knew this track was something special. I feel like I'm taking a part of Australian music culture on an unforgettable journey, sharing what we have created with the rest of the world." - TIMMY TRUMPET

      New single High sees Timmy Trumpet and Bliss N Eso come together to deliver an upbeat, feel-good anthem. Meeting backstage at a festival in their homeland, the two artists from different sides of the musical spectrum now converge to deliver a slice of pop euphoria. Ready for an extra-terrestrial journey, Timmy continues to push the boundaries of just how far his music can go with this optimistic audio celebration. Ultimately reaching for the skies, Timmy & Bliss n Eso have created an important message that’s encouraging freedom to find confidence to find your own high.
       
      Timmy Trumpet – High (feat Bliss n Eso feat. Lee Fields) is out now.

      The NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, is creating confusion and uncertainty for any festival or community event organiser as well as millions of audience members across NSW by rejecting sensible consultation over her Government’s rushed and half-written new Music Festival Licence.
       
      Representatives from across the industry have implored the NSW Government to extend the date for the introduction of its new licensing regime for music festivals to allow for proper consultation on its operation and implementation.
       
      Despite the industry’s willingness to work constructively with Government on these issues, the Premier’s approach to the festival industry has been an uncooperative and heavy-handed ‘put up or shut down’. Following a meeting yesterday with advisers, we have been informed the Government will not change its position on the implementation of new licensing rules from next Friday.
      By refusing to consult properly with industry, as opposed to the disorganised and inadequate process it has run to date, the Premier now seems to be determined to shut down some of our best festivals for the sake of a quick media headline.
       
      The impact of the Government’s badly designed licensing requirements is already being felt with festival operators shutting down events or facing hugely inflated costs almost overnight to meet the Government’s demands. Despite statements to the media these changes won’t impact “low risk” festivals, the Government has failed to provide clarity and certainty around its risk categories. It’s a fact that well-run festivals with excellent safety records are already being affected by these new guidelines.
       
      Festivals across NSW, in metropolitan, regional and country areas will be hurt by Premier Berejiklian’s approach. Our musicians and performers, production crews and festival staff will lose jobs and income. Communities, including regional centres and country towns, which host festivals and thrive on the business generated by festivals and their fans will also be hurt.
       
      The Government’s approach does not make economic sense. Nor does it do anything to deliver better safety outcomes. If the Government was genuine in its commitment to festival safety it would be working hand-in-hand with our experienced festival organisers rather than just imposing new licensing conditions drawn up in Macquarie Street.
      We urge the Government to come to the table with a commitment to genuine and extensive consultation that includes a commitment to defer the 1 March start date for the new licensing requirements so we can understand the economic, cultural and operational impacts of the new regulations.
       
      The festival industry will be stepping up its campaign on this to make people aware of what is at stake for our music industry as well as business and tourism across the state, and will be urging all parties at the upcoming NSW election to support policies which deliver certainty for the future of music festivals in NSW.
       
      Otherwise, sadly, it looks like NSW will be Australia’s first music festival-free zone.
