“Highly recommend lessons from one of Brisbane’s best local djs. Jay was very keen to get you started from the moment we discussed lessons. From beat matching, music theory, playlists, Jay covers it all. Every lesson you would learn more and receive great constructive feedback.”

“When arrived for my first lesson I was nervous as hell but Jay’s calm and cool nature made me feel welcome and at ease within minutes. He has taught me everything from scratch. From beat matching to how to arrange all my tracks so they flow effortlessly in a mix. But above all, he makes the lesson fun, which in turn made it so easy to learn. This fella has a wealth of knowledge and I’m glad I’ve been fortunate enough to meet him!”

Just completed the beginner course with DJ Jay Berry. Was an awesome experience, Jay is super super cool and great teacher and throughly recommend DJ lab for anyone even slightly contemplating learning dj-ing. Much, much, much, much better than YouTubing or starting from scratch 👍👍👍👍👍

Andrew McGrath

Rascal

Rascal’s obsession with DJing began in 2006 and it didn’t take long till this mischievous party lover earned residencies in some of Brisbane’s most iconic clubs including The Family and The Monastery and currently Capulet (Dragonfruit).

Creating quite a reputation for himself in Brisbane, Rascal played regularly, sharing the decks with the likes of DJ W!ld, Tim Green, Seko K and Carl Craig to name a few. During this time he also turned his hand to events, running underground club nights Jack’d and Delight as well as producing his own music.

In 2013 Sydney beckoned, and Rascal fell in love with vinyl and quickly made a name for himself in his new home playing for renown crews Mantra Collective, Something Else, Dirty Feet and Touch of Loft. This all accumulated to a career highlight of warming up for French underground legend DJ W!LD.

Bringing a new party experience to the beautiful forests of Sydney with his innovative event Dirty Feet and an upcoming release on a Brisbane based vinyl-only label Rascal shows no signs of slowing down.

Rascal works with turntables, digital DJ equipment along with a swag of synthesisers and drum machines for music production.

I went from zero production knowledge to writing a full loop in one lesson. The DJ Lab tutors are patient and effective communicators. I didn’t feel overwhelmed with the process of producing a beat, and left the session satisfied and inspired. Cheers guys!

Jeff Chau

I started doing dj and music productions with jay and haven’t looked back. Jay has been able to help me on my way to my own goals and is very helpful in passing down all his knowledge and is very easy going and makes you feel comfortable in a learning environment. I would recommend anyone looking to progress with their own djing and music productions to get in touch with the guys at dj lab!

Jordan Patterson

I am an amateur musician looking to record and produce my own material so when I rocked up with a couple of ukuleles I think I threw a spanner in the lesson plan. Jay took it all in his stride and was able to adapt his course for my purposes. In a relaxed environment with one-on-one tuition I learnt enough in my first eight sessions to record and produce my first piece. I became a better musician, too. Thanks, Jay, you rock!
