MUSIC technology students enjoyed a day of workshops with leading producers.

Students studying for their A-levels at Varndean College in Brighton were treated to remixing masterclasses by music producers from the arts education organisation Education and Bass.

Music producers and DJs Raff, Goozy and Outrage introduced students to techniques for manipulating audio material.

Following a listening workshop and group discussion, students consolidated what they had learned by applying the techniques to tracks, including manipulating vocals with dub effects and drum loops.

Laurie Bush, head of music technology at Varndean College, said the producers’ enthusiasm was “extremely evident” and that it had been a fulfilling exercise for the students.

He said: “Outrage, Raff and Goozy offered professional insights and their historical knowledge of trailblazing artists such as The Prodigy, and other grime and drum’n’bass artists.

“The wealth of tips provided by Education and Bass was a great inspiration to the students.

“The college is delighted to say we have joined up with Education and Bass and find their input enormously beneficial to teaching A level Music Technology.

“We hope to see them again here soon, but will also be encouraging all students to enter their remix competitions, and use their pool of tutorials to better our production techniques here at the college.”

The DJ Outrage, whose real name is Andrew Ferguson, founded Education and Bass in 2016.

The arts organisation provides workshops, seminars and guest lecturers to clubs and colleges.

The scheme is delivered by international industry specialists and college and university lecturers.
