BRITISH MUSIC EXPERIENCE PRESENTS DANCE MUSIC MASTERCLASS WITH THE FREEMASONS
The British Music Experience are presenting a unique chance to interact with one of the UK's most successful DJ and Producer teams, The Freemasons.
On Thursday 24th November James Wiltshire, the Producer half of the dance duo, will be presenting the music-making techniques that have made The Freemasons the most in demand dance DJs, Producers and Remixers of the moment.
From producing massive dance hits of their own including 'Love on my Mind', 'Rain Down Love' and the anthem 'Uninvited' feat. Bailey Tzuke, to remixing Whitney Houston's comeback smash- 'Million Dollar Bill', to Kelly Rowland's 'Work', Beyonce & Shakira’s 'Beautiful Liar', to producing for Kylie and Sophie Ellis Bextor. The Freemasons have led the way for dance and house music production and remixing.
James will be explaining and taking questions on how they go about creating their trademark sounds in studio and live, including the software and kit they use and how they exploit it. How they got started in music production, started getting access to samples and vocals and how they begun to collaborate with big artists.
James Wiltshire, Producer and one half of the Freemasons, said ‘I'm incredibly proud to be part of the British Music experience this year. Events like these always attract the next breed of producers, artists and remixers and in an industry that is changing faster than it ever has before I look forward to passing on the baton of knowledge that we've built up over many years within it. And of course, a few of the more amusing moments that often punctuate what is the best job in the world - making records’
