In January 2011 Crate2play enrolled in school but it wasn’t just any other school.
The first time I heard of Dubspot was in 2006. I was moving from NY to Berlin and I had some DJ equipment up for sale on craigslist. I sold my DJ console to this really young kid. When I asked him how long he had been DJing he said he had just enrolled at Dubspot. I asked him what is that? He said it was a DJ and Electronic Music Production School down on 14th Street. Fast forward to a couple of years later and I am in Berlin and everybody is using Ableton and I knew I wanted to learn it too. So I begin researching for Ableton courses. I go to the Ableton website and there it was Dubspot under the education tab and as soon as I saw the address I remembered that kid. In the summer of 2010 I was in NY and I decided to attend a Dubspot Ableton workshop. As soon as I walked in and saw the set up I knew that was the place for me! After the workshop I decided to enroll in the Ableton Live Producer Certificate Program. The Ableton Live Producer Certificate Program is the best hands on Ableton training you’ll ever experience. Never in my life did I imagine I would sit in a class taught by Raz Mesinai and John Selway. DJ Kiva, Michael BangInclude, Evan Sutton and Sean Clemens-Brotha Sean were also amazing instructors to whom I am forever grateful. Did I mention the staff? Those guys rule! I was able to change my class schedule no problem. I got them in touch with my friends from Soul Clap and they organized a workshop. What about the students? I met the most talented people from all walks of life. We all had 2 things in common our love for music and Ableton. What’s better than a friendship based on music! Dubspot is not just a school it is the place where your musical vision comes alive. Special thanks to that kid, wish I had your contact information I’d like to thank you personally. As for my Ableton skills I am currently working on my music! Stay tuned.
