Song Sampling, Live Setups & more

With Topic. Joachim Pastor and Used

Award-winning DJ Topic is a master at reimagining classic tracks in his music ~ such as hit single Your Love (9PM) ~ introducing them to a whole new audience in the process. During Topic's Production Process: Song Sampling, you’ll have the chance to learn all about how Topic creates familiar yet fresh melodies that lodge themselves in your head, and of course how to use sampling within your own next production.

Looking to get some inspiration for your gear setup? French DJ, producer and Hungry Music founder Joachim Pastor to the rescue: During the Live Set Up of Joachim Pastor workshop, he's set to show how he built and finetuned his gear selection that he takes on stage, plus how he adjusts it when he has a new idea or wants to customize a track.

If you're stuck on one of your productions instead, you might want to take a look at How This Track Was Made w/ Used: The Belgian Drum & Bass producer will take you through the production process of one of his tracks; learn from him in real time and take some of his tricks into your own skillset...

Evolving into GORDO

Just a few months ago, superstar DJ/producer Carnage made one of the most pivotal moves in his career: after announcing his early retirement to his global fanbase, Carnage was instead reborn as GORDO, shedding off his well-established image in favour of a new house and techno-oriented focus. Learn all about the ins and outs of his transformation at ADE Lab, what such a crucial move has meant for his career and the lessons you can take from it as an artist yourself.
