Top Five Must-See Shows This Weekend in Phoenix

Categories: This Weekend

Jay Sabatini
DJ Juheun
Saturday, January 26: DJ Juheun @ Bar Smith

Bleeding-edge MacBook Pro? Check. Professional-grade Beats by Dre cans? Yup. Pirate, er legally obtained version of Ableton and/or Serato Scratch Live? Downloaded and installed. Sounds like you're well on your way to following the well-trodden path into the world of DJs and EDM. Hell, you've probably already worked a few house parties and uploaded a few amateurish Diplo/Porter Robinson remixes to your SoundCloud.

So what's the next step? It probably would be wise to attend Bits & Things, a combination workshop and social mixer (no pun intended) taking place on Saturday, January 26, at Bar Smith, 130 East Washington Street. The monthly get-together aimed at EDM artists, knob-twisters, and anyone working a mixer for a paycheck will afford them a chance to get together and share ideas and network, says organizer Steven Chung (a.k.a. Juheun). "It's the next step for any DJ who is trying to continue on is to start producing music, so this event/meet up is a perfect way for DJs and producers to get together and share ideas," Chung says.

He adds that the event is open to "both bedroom and guys who are already releasing stuff," and will feature a speaking appearance by Scottsdale Community College electronic music instructor Elaine Walker, as well as the chance for artists and DJs to perform their tracks. Doors open at 6 p.m. Admission is free. -- Benjamin Leatherman
