69Beats, the 2016 Red Bull 3Style Poland Champion, has started a new tutorial series called Button Pushing for DJs.
The lessons help DJs of all types learn advanced techniques like tone play, finger drumming, and pitch playing, and integrate them into their party sets.
“[The techniques] help you make your set more entertaining and add a whole new vibe to the tracks you play,” the 28-year-old DJ says in the first episode. “And they can help you get out of some trouble if something unwanted happens. And the best thing about them, in my opinion, is that they really help you get the attention of the crowd.”
The first episode takes a look at basic finger drumming patterns. He encourages DJs to follow along using his tutorials on the educational software, Melodics.
