  5. I’m helping out Rizla who are organising a free DJ masterclass event in Manchester this afternoon with MJ Cole. From the website: The Rizla Re-Crafted tour will take in four music production workshops, hosted by Back2You and featuring MJ Cole as the Rizla Re-Crafted Ambassador. Each workshop will run for two hours and focus on particular techniques in regard to remixing a track. The workshops will include a practical session from MJ Cole that will demonstrate production techniques, industry tips and studio suggestions. A live feed will be incorporated so delegates can see first hand how these techniques are applied as well as an interactive Q&A session with MJ Cole. Each delegate will be given the opportunity to enter the Rizla Re-Crafted remix competition, a reduced price ticket for the evening showcases and a certificate on completion of the workshop. It's taking place at The Deaf Institute from 4pm - 6pm. It's all free, to go you just need to register at rizlarecrafted.co.uk They're also putting on a huge night tonight at Sankeys with Drop The Lime (NYC), MJ Cole, Oneman, Mumdance, Mowgli, Mystery Jets (DJ set), Hot City (live), Bass Clef (live) from 11pm to 6am at In Motion: http://www.rizlarecrafted.co.uk Here's a bit more about the remixing competition that they're running: Get the chance to download component parts of a Mystery Jets track and remix them. Once you have worked your magic and re-crafted the track, upload it to the site and let the panel of judges that will include the Mystery Jets, listen to all the entries and pick a winner. The winner will see their music given unprecedented profile. Rizla will send out the track to its extensive network of label and DJ contacts across the music industry. In addition, the winner will be kitted out with a Hercules DJ Console RMX – the complete DJ controller - plus a sack of Rizla goodies. Rizla have some great contacts within the music industry so it’s well worth checking out. http://www.rizlarecrafted.co.uk
