Vuurdoop @ Louis Davids 14-12-2012

A new edition of VUURDOOP, The lanching stage for our new talents, this time with 10 of latest of our allround talents playing from hip-hop to house.

DJ School Amsterdam offers every ambitious student the possibillity to play live. This is crucial to their development and an essential part of our courses. Our talents play at a wide variety of stages, ranging from low-key bars to the most prestigious clubs in Amsterdam.

Our first self-hosted Club Night was in 2010. We both organise our own events, and host stages at prime club nights and festivals. Between 2010 and 2018 we did 55 events on which over 200 of our talents performed.

Seeing our talents perform at our Club Nights is the highlight of our work as teachers. They climb the stage with a beating heart and usually get the real kick of performing after a few mixes. They are very often nothing but euphoric when they walk offstage again.

Performing live brings so many new insights to the learning curve of the students. They see what their music does to people and how it sounds on high volumes. Their song choice is critically received and they get the feel of anticipating an audience. Many times, after the first live gig, our students book another package of lessons to furtherenhance their skills to a level where they can fully control the dancefloor.

During this years Amsterdam Dance Event we had a special get-together for DJ’s and Producers at our own studios, it was packed and we had a blast!



Our annual get together is a place for our talents and former students to connect, to the teachers and people from the scene. Successful students often link our newest talents to clubs and bookers. This way, our get-together is useful not only in an educational way but also as a fruitful network date.


Here is a link to the live-coverage of the event, in which the Q&A starts at 14.28.

We did a Q&A with 4 of our DJ/Producer coaches and had free drinks for everyone. There was free track-feedback for producers wich drew a good bunch of young talents bringing their tracks.

Most of all we had a blast with everyone from our network and already look forward to ADE 2019!
