About your host

I am a techno DJ from the United States. I owned and operated one of the first DJ schools ever in the US, Metatrack Studios, where I spun vinyl and taught beginning DJs from 1998-2003.

What we’ll do

Techno music is exciting because it is unfolds in the moment, each set never to be repeated and thus unique to this night, this venue, and this event. The Netherlands has one of the best techno music scenes in the world. I will give you a 1-hour DJ lesson on my Pioneer XDJ console at my home in Leiden. During the lesson, I'll explain the 3 main skills of a talented DJ: technical mixing skill,…

What else you should know

If you are staying someplace other than Leiden, such as Amsterdam or Rotterdam, I'll take you to the bus/train station and give you specific instructions on which bus or train to catch to get back to where you need to be.

What I’ll provide

Entrance fee
Entrance to Magistrat
Train
Return NS train ticket from Leiden to The Hague
Equipment
Access to my Pioneer XDJ console for the DJ lesson, and access to the DJ booth during the event.

What to bring

Comfy shoes! Most of us wear trainers/sport shoes. Heels are a bad idea!
Ear plugs. I suggest ones designed for sound rather than for sleep, such as: https://www.musicianonamission.com/best-earplugs-for-musicians/
Optional: A USB key, in FAT-32 format, with mp3 songs or tracks you'd like to mix during the DJ lesson. Electronic music with a beat (house, trance, techno etc) works best.

Where you'll be

My home is in Leiden, which is a picturesque historic town in the Netherlands. There are very few nightclubs in Leiden, but I have new Pioneer DJ gear at my home that we will use for the DJ lesson and to have some quiet moments before we take a short 15-minute train ride to Club Magistrat later on. I'll make sure you get back to Leiden safely.
