Bring your own vinyl records to learn the Art of Vinyl improvisation by Héctor Oaks.

Join electronic music and vinyl luminary Héctor Oaks in a workshop hosted by Seedj that delves deep into the art of improvising with vinyl records. In this hands-on session, Héctor will share his extensive knowledge and expertise, which he gained from years and years of mastering the decks at renowned hotspots worldwide.

This session will help you get insights into crate-digging, record selection, and the importance of reading the dancefloor.
