Beatport & Scratch DJ Academy Partnership

Since our founding by Rob Principe and Jam Master Jay in 2002, we have been dedicated to providing education and resources to DJs, Producers, and all those interested in the art form.  With six brick and mortar Academies across the U.S., and several worldwide satellite locations, we have taught over 500,000 people to DJ and produce music.  

We strive to create and develop new opportunities in order to carry out Jam Master Jay’s vision of making the art form accessible to all.  By officially partnering with Beatport, we will be able to provide our students with new resources and affordable solutions to help support their DJ and production education and careers. Our students will benefit from custom sample packs and discounts for digital resources in the Beatport store.  

Additionally, we are thrilled to expand upon our existing free educational video content by live streaming videos through Beatport’s video platform and providing on demand video content on our YouTube page. 

Rob, our founder, sums up why we are so stoked for this partnership, “Beatport is the perfect partner to aide in our mission to be wherever anyone wants to learn to DJ and produce music. We’re looking forward to not only providing our students access to the vast Beatport catalog, but also contributing our video programming to the world’s largest community of DJs and their fans.”
