About DJ Society (Breakz)
Ever fancied learning to DJ or hosting a club night or event? Whether you're an aspiring DJ, are interested in planning and hosting events, or are just interested in music and want to get involved in something new: Breakz has something to offer to you. Breakz is the University's DJing society, but we don't just need DJs; if you're an MC, if you enjoy graphic design, or have a head for business, or if you enjoy web design and promotion, there's a place for you in Breakz. We perform at events on and off-campus throughout the year, as well as hosting our own. Breakz itself is a brand name around York, most famous for its underground and alternative nights which give you somehing different on a night out. By joining Breakz, you're joining a big family of avid music lovers with varied tastes and a passion for event hosting, so you'll be sure to find people with similar tastes and styles to network with. All skill levels are welcome, and our mixing sessions are very laid-back and casual, where everyone can practice to their heart's content on industry standard equipment, as well as take a step back and learn from each other.
Mixing sessions are held every Tuesday from 6pm-10pm in G/N/001 (in the Maths block by the physics building).
Anybody can learn to DJ, and by joining Breakz you'll meet people who play at events on and off-campus regularly throughout the year and various people involved in other ways, such as graphic designers, music producers, events planners and more.
