Win a place on the Roland Aira Academy at SubBass

SubBass Academy

SubBass Academy of Electronic Music and CDR have partnered to offer you the opportunity to win a place on the Roland Aira Academy in October - the last course for 2015.

Taught using Roland's range of AIRA production and performance gear, students will progress through a 16-hour course in the Roland Aira Academy covering essential production techniques including synthesis, beat creation, sequencing, arrangement and effects. The inaugural course – AIRA 101 – will be taught by Fabio Lendrum, the fast-rising DJ/Producer whose work has been championed by key music industry players including Pete Tong and MistaJam. Fabio's busy DJ schedule has seen him play sets at Fabric, Matter and XOYO, along with radio airplay on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM.

The AIRA range includes the TR-8, the re-imagined versions of Roland's classic TR-808/909 drum machines, the SYSTEM-1 synth, which recreates some of Roland's classic analogue synths that are still used by producers all over the world, the TB-3 - a remake of the very famous TB-303, which was the synth famous for making acid house back in the 80's and the VT-3 - the Vocal Transformer which is a descendant of the Roland BOSS VT-1. Launched last year, the AIRA family has a flexible, hands-on control and easy integration in DJ sets. SubBass students will be learning on the same AIRA gear used by artists ranging from Todd Terry and DJ Pierre to SBTRKT, Eats Everything, Goldie and of course, the legendary Afrika Bambaataa.
