Confetti ICT

As a student at confetti Johan has took to this like a duck to water and has been excelling in all areas of his course but also his personality has shown through too, rather than just being self motivated to get his work done he has helped his fellow students in class and out of class in his own time, this has been noticed by his peers and has led to opportunities to work for the college on numerous occasions.

What’s Next Exhibition – Harvey Hadden Stadium Nottingham.

Johan was asked to help out at this exhibition by his tutor as he showed that he has the music tech skills and maturity to become a teacher or trainer for the college and also the people skills to talk to people and get them involved in things and to explain things clearly so they understand the concepts of music tech without the jargon that would bore them or making them feel awkward.

This involved showing students the different courses at Confetti ICT: Music, Media & Gaming, what the course requirements are for each course and a brief explanation of each one.

Johan was part of the music stand and showed people the kind of thing they would be involved in if they did a music course at Confetti but also Johan showed great flexibility that his knowledge on the other courses was also very helpful and up to date, Johan also showed his maturity when talking to a range of people from different backgrounds, of different ages and also to people that have physical or mental disabilities.

Young & Gifted

Young and gifted is something that Confetti ICT do every year, they have students that come in from all different areas that have won the right to be classed as young and gifted, these students then travel to different establishments around the UK to do different projects in the hope that it will show them more about the music industry and help them to decide which path they would like to choose once they leave school.

Johan was again asked to help out at Confetti to help the students of young and gifted to produce a track that would be to a chosen video and displayed in a presentation at the end of the week.

In the week that the students attended college the students learned a range of different areas of music technology and the software as well as microphone techniques, how to edit video and audio, how to use VST’s like synth’s, processors and effects units like reverb units, delays and even multiband compressors!

DJ classes & promotions

Johan is now teaching students at Confetti DJ lessons once a week, all students are at different levels from beginners to advance, use different formats to mix e.g turntables, CDJ’s or laptop, software (Serato, Trakor or Ableton) and midi controllers.

Johan has helped promote Confetti ICT by going out to shops and events, doing DJ gigs, handing out flyers and offering support at exhibitions etc (as above).

Production & Music editing:

Excelsior School of Dance & Ballet:

Johan has been producing, remixing & editing music for this busy dance school for the last three years, the music is used for rehearsals, shows, competitions and the end of year performances held at the Palace Theatre in Mansfield.

Supermojo Remixes:

Supermojo are a local band based in Mansfield, they have been on the local circuit for years gaining a big following, things have took of for the band recently and have been on TV, in Music video’s and have toured around the Uk supporting artists from all over the country.

The next step to get the bands name out more they have asked me to do some dance remixes of there tracks that can be played in the clubs and give them a wider target audience and maybe even get into the charts.

Life as a Promoter:

Since the age of 14 years old Johan has organised nights and musical events, starting at his local youth club in 1994 after people where starting to hear about his DJ talents, he approached the youth club and they agreed to let him have an event once a month to raise money for the youth club, this went well and was getting 250+ every week (average attendance was 20-30 on any other night), this went on till 1998 and then had to stop due to Johan turning 18 and being too old to attend the youth club and was told that as he didn’t work there he was not allowed to run it anymore.

From there he started doing free parties at people’s houses, hiring out different venues across the country and made a name for himself as a top DJ. Johan stopped a year later though due to his daughter being born. Maybe he could have done both but wanted to give her the best in life and accepted a job that stopped him DJing and promoting but not for long...

After a break from the scene he decided it was time to get back into things but found that it was harder to get gig’s as people where using CDJ’s, laptop’s and software.
It was only natural for Johan to do something he knew to get recognised so he decided to start up a new night called Trance4mation that was based in Sheffield, this went really well and has toured the country doing versus nights with other brands with future events still being planned across the country.

Also Johan plans to launch his own label in the future which will promote new talented producers and also offer samples and Abelton live packs for DJ’s and producers.
