John Digweed Confirmed for burn Residency 2014

With just days to go until the start of another burn Residency bootcamp, John Digweed has been revealed as the program’s mentor.

Having established himself as one of the most revered artists of the electronic music scene through his work as a DJ, producer and founder of Bedrock, Digweed will be flying into Ibiza with his wealth of knowledge and years of expertise, to help nurture and guide the up-and-coming talent. Together with headline mentors Pete Tong, Carl Cox and Philip Straub, John will be casting a watchful eye over this year’s aspiring DJs in order to determine which five should be awarded coveted residencies at Ibiza hotspots Café Mambo, Sankeys and Privilege.

Not only will John be on hand throughout the entire program, he will also play a crucial part in supporting the five winning DJs throughout their residencies on the island, right up to the announcement of the overall winner of burn Residency 2014 this September.

Kicking off this Saturday, the bootcamp boasts an impressive list of DJ mentors enlisted to pass on their knowledge in specially crafted lectures and masterclasses. Dedicated to equipping contestants with the skills they need to succeed, the 18 young hopefuls will also receive production masterclasses from industry partners such as Akai, Numark, M-Audio and Native Instruments.

With an intensive fortnight of lectures and masterclasses looming for contestants, the prospect of spending their summer spinning the decks at some of the hottest clubs on the White Isle is now in touching distance.
