VEMF Interactive is a content-rich exploration into the various aspects of creating, performing & promoting electronic music.
Whether you’ve always thought about becoming a DJ, or have been producing music for a decade,
we’ve got something that will help take your game to the next level.

This multiday series of in-depth workshops are broken into 2 primary streams - Production & Performance.
These workshops are delivered by established producers & djs who have gained a degree of mastery,
in navigating the social environments, musical landscapes & technology trends specific to electronic culture.

The VEMF Interactive Performance Stream includes 6 classes!:

Wed Jul27 | 4:30-6:00pm | Sunset Room | $20 if purchased solo
In today’s music industry having talent is only half the battle. With an oversaturated market you need a conscious strategy to stand out and make your sound heard. Sub|division resident and longtime bass pusher Rhythmicon has spent the last 10 years studying the dynamics of this success and will be sharing these findings with the public for the first time here at VEMF.

Wed Jul27 | 6:30-8:00pm | Sunset Room | $20 if purchased solo
A veteran of the BC electronica scene, d-Set (Brent Kral) is in a unique position to have seen many changes in DJ culture, equipment & methodology. Brent will go over a variety of the equipment used in the industry both past & present. There has been a lot of advances in recent performance technology and d-Set will dip a bit into how the DJ world has taken advantage of these changes along with some of the new gear available. Topics such as performance principles, gear fundamentals and artistry techniques will also be covered. To finish off d-Set will offer up some insider tips for self promotion and getting yourself gigs! Brent will be bringing some of his own gear for a (clean) hands on session to show you how everything feels and really works, and leave you hungry for your next time behind the decks!

PERF3: ART of DJing :: GRASP THE ERRO (Vancouver)
Thurs Jul28 | 4:30-6:00pm | Sunset Room | $20 if purchased solo
Grasp has been a performing dj for the last decade and played everything from hip-hop to dubstep, funk, dnb, soul, electro, breaks and glitch in venues ranging from coffee shops to sold out clubs and festivals. Over that time he has made many mistakes and learned many valuable lessons about what it really means to be a dj. This workshop will focus on 2 main topics. Firstly, how to find and develop your voice as an artist to the point where you can confidently express yourself through your chosen medium. Secondly, how to build the technical skills necessary to articulate and deliver your message. One of the most important aspects of being a dj is the ability to read and adapt to an environment while still influencing the mood and energy of that environment. This workshop will proceed the same way. There will be an extensive Q & A segment to accommodate everyone in attendance.

Thurs Jul28 | 6:30-8:00pm | Sunset Room | $20 if purchased solo
