Push It! Lab: Road Trip #2

This year we’ve been taking our hip-hop and electronic workshop series PushIt! Lab on the road!

Throughout the Term 2 school holidays we delivered a special six-day series of hip-hop and electronic workshops in Sale at The Wellington Centre and The Wedge. During the project participants were mentored by Memphis LK (SAATSUMA), Kyso and Defron in hip-hop and electronic production, song-writing, recording and performance. Across the two weeks the squad of talented young people created three original songs with accompanying music videos!

Now it’s Ballarat’s turn!

Road Trip #2 – Ballarat

 Our second PushIt! Lab: Road Trip of the year will be delivered in Ballarat at Eastwood Leisure Complex!

Throughout six days over two weeks’ participants will be guided in hip-hop and electronic production and song-writing with mentor artists Memphis LK (SAATSUMA), EMBE and Defron.

In the first week participants will learn the basics of hip-hop and electronic music production and song-writing including using Ableton Push and Maschine. Then in the second week participants will turn their new skillset into original creative works with accompanying visuals!
