Artist Central Clinic: Mash-up Masterclass
Pioneer of the very concept of a "mash-up", DJ Z-Trip has graciously agreed to share his secrets with us, in his first ever Mash-up How-to Clinic. Spend an hour and learn the basic concepts of creating the mash-up, from choosing the right songs and transitions to isolating tracks and pitch control. This is a unique opportunity to learn skills from one of the world's best DJs.
Z-Trip is not just a DJ. He is more than a producer. He is a musical pioneer. And sits at the helm of the highest echelon of DJ royalty.
As a performer, Z-Trip is revered as one of the best live performance DJs in history, by both fans and peers, so it’s no surprise fans voted him “America’s Best DJ” in 2009.His worldwide sold out shows and festival appearances continue to set attendance records while drawing critical praise. At the vanguard of dance music culture, he is at the heart of the DJ Hero™ video game series, appearing as an avatar and providing several scorching remixes.
Worldwide sold out shows would be enough for most artists, but not Z-Trip. His career brims with myriad milestones, starting from the now legendary mixtape, Uneasy Listening, which the Phoenix, AZ native put together with Missouri’s notorious DJ P. Back in 2001, the idea of pitting classic rock tracks against hip- hop into a seamless mix that could find the Pharcyde rapping over the Eagles or Metallica grinding it out under the righteous bark of Midnight Oil was unheard of.
After 14 months of sold-out shows at his Friday night headlining residency at Rain inside The Palms, Las Vegas, Z-Trip is taking a rest from his crowd-thrilling stint, “Z-Trip’s Revolution.” Upon displaying his genre bending skills and sharing his stage with many A-level guests including Three 6 Mafia, Common, Rev Run, Too Short, and De La Soul, Z-Trip is taking a rest from stage to focus on his next chapter of recorded music.
