Epic 101 Studios introduce the first of it's kind music production course in Egypt...

Staff Writer

Egyptians sitting around talking about the music scene is like eunuchs sitting around talking about the Kama Sutra. Very few DJs actually know anything about the process of making the sounds that come out of the colourful spinny things they fiddle about with on stage, and those that do have little experience in actually doing it. It is the year of the khabt and everybody seems (or wants) to be a DJ though, with modern day equipment, the only qualifications you really need to pull off the charade are having hands and ears.

Introducing Epic 101 Studios‘ Music Production Course. Your musical Mr.Myagi will be Hussein Sherbini, talented co-founder of Epic 101 Studios, and one half of the awesome electro-clash duo, Wetrobots (who just came back from a spell-binding European tour). They’re offering a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn about music production in an easygoing environment surrounded by like-minded creatives, which’ll ease you in to finding your own sound, and – who knows? – maybe even finding yourself. Awww.

“It is a course made for young artists in Egypt who want a career in music but are limited with their knowledge of music production. They no longer have to go study abroad or book expensive studio hours to produce their music. By taking this course, they will have the knowledge to produce their own music at industry-standard quality and be able to send out polished demos and EPs ready to be played in clubs, on radio stations and even television,” says Sherbini. But why should we believe him? Well, he has a degree from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, the same university where the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Alice Cooper, Michael Jackson’s guitarist, Steve Vai, and many more artists, studied. He’s also the first Pro Tools HD-certified operator in Egypt. So basically, he knows his shit. The course covers everything you need to know to be able to create and yes, even become a DJ.

The uniform isn't purple. There is no uniform. This is just a strange coincidence.
