Inspiration. Knowledge. Engagement. Facilitation.

Artist led music workshops with…
Afrodeutsche, Ancestral Voices, DBridge, Dub Phizix, Jenna G, Meat Free, Swing Ting,
Zed Bias and more…

Are you a producer, vocalist, audio engineer, DJ, instrumentalist, into synths, or interested in any other creative processes involved around making music? Then we want to hear from you.

In February, the Marcus Intalex Music Foundation (MIMF) is launching our first ever WK:END of free workshops in Manchester aimed at developing bright, new musical talent. You’ll have the chance to rub shoulders with some of the best artists that shape electronic music today, develop your skills, explore new techniques and gain the right knowledge to further your career.

From taster sessions in music production, masterclasses in beat making, DJ workshops delivered by seasoned experts and more; we’ll host and facilitate a programme that encourages participants to immerse themselves in everything we love about music and the artists we admire.

To be considered, you’ll need to complete a short questionnaire highlighting your interests and skills, as well as giving us a bit more information about yourself and why you want to take part. You’ll also be given the opportunity to share some of your work with us; this could be your own tracks, a DJ mix, or anything that indicates which aspect of music you’re involved with.

Selected WK:END participants will receive the following:

  • One-to-one support from established artists
  • Access to relevant music software and hardware
  • Workshops that will develop skills both in and out of the studio
  • Free passes to a series of events during the weekend, held on February 22-24th and featuring some of the most respected names in electronic music, many of whom were Marcus’ friends, collaborators and contemporaries
