I’m Joe Barnes, a DJ/Producer from Tameside, Greater Manchester.
I Have 9 years experience in DJ’ing in Clubs in different cities around the north of England. I have played at some great venues over the years such as Mint Warehouse & Mission in Leeds, Garlands in Liverpool, Eden in San Antonio, Ibiza aswell as different clubs in Manchester and all over the Northwest and Yorkshire. I also worked at the legendary Sankeys Nightclub in Manchester as a Bartender and Bar Supervisor for over a year but never got to DJ there unfortunately!
I have about 8 years music production experience of using Ableton Live. I have also had a few tracks released in the past on beatport & traxsource etc. I’ve learnt at a few different Manchester Music schools when i was in my teens/early twenties and believe that you learn more in 1 to 1 sessions than you do in a group situation. The experience is more personal and caters to the individuals needs and subsequently means more value for money.
I want to pass on my knowledge of DJ’ing and Production that i have gained over the years to help the next generation of budding up and comers learn and overcome the same obstacles i was faced with when starting out.
