Miami has a bad DJ surplus. The technological trickery of programs such as Final Scratch and Traktor has vaulted a whole generation of tin-eared scenesters into thinking theyre black-jeaned Beethovens, when really, if you take away the digital beat-matching, they cant even blend doubles of Skull Snaps.
Thats why this town needs you yes, you sensitive, music-loving artist that you are, whos DJ-curious but doesnt think she has the necessary douchebaggery to make it on South Beach. Nonsense! Its skills that pay the bills in the Miami of the future, and the Scratch Academy can give them to you. Come out this Friday at 7 p.m. for a free thats right, free DJ class taught by dudes (DJ Craze is on the faculty nuff said) who really know their craft.
