White Choco7ate teamed up with the US Embassies in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan to host a Virtual Workshop on the Evolution of DJing. 🎧🎼📀
We ran for 90 minutes talking about everything from the birth of Hip Hop DJing to some of the different types of scratches, to beat juggling. The event was a huge success and we’d like to send a huge thank you to all of the team for all of their hard work!
It was an honor to represent Hip Hop culture on such a global scale and share it with countries that we could only ever dream of going to. The event was translated into Russian live so it’s accessible to all Russian speakers.
Event Bio via American Space Dushanbe:

✅ “Our goal during our sets is to showcase DJing in its most authentic, purest form,” says Rob Swift. He adds, “The cool part of it all is I get to explore my creative potential as a DJ alongside someone I love”. Dilly adds, “DJing has allowed me to design my life, and write my own story.”
✅ Their live sets feature 4 turntables and coordinated effort to deconstruct and reconstruct genres of music like soul, rock and Hip Hop using classic DJ techniques such as scratching and “beat juggling”.
