Bootleg Workshop by DJ Dunproofin’
Fancy a bit of remixing and creating bootlegs? Come and join this free workshop by Aberdeen-based mash-up maverick Dunproofin’! All welcome.
Dunproofin’s mash up bootlegs, remixes and DJ mixes have been heard on radio stations in the UK (XFM London & Glasgow) and beyond. It has even been reported that a track has been played during an interval at an LA Baseball Game to a crowd of around 60k.
The plans for the future…
On Doors Open Day you will also get the chance to learn more about our plans for the proposed new Centre for Contemporary Arts in Union terrace Gardens. We will display the model and plans and you will have the opportunity to give us feedback.
