Red Bull Music Academy Treats Select Memphis MRC Members To Private Workshop
Red Bull Music Academy Vet and Atlanta native DJ Rasta Root presented a free workshop to Memphis MRC members at the Music Resource Center this past Saturday the 27th. Using Serato, Rasta Root is able to scratch, mix and manipulate video and audio from his turntables and computer. As more DJs integrate visual and video elements into their sets, the value of those who can comfortably incorporate both elements into their performance increases.
Especially for mash-ups, this technology appears to be the way of the future in the DJ world. Rasta Root had some words about the Music Resource Center:
“This place is incredible –what an amazing resource for Memphis musicians, I cant believe we don’t have something like this in ATL! Atlanta needs this.”
Many thanks to Rasta Root, The Red Bull Music Academy, and all who helped make this event a success.
