Hi there, I am Kareem Raïhani. Welcome to my Ecstatic Dance DJ Training.
I’ve been a producer and creator of the Ecstatic Dance and Conscious Dance community in Europe for over 15 years. On many occasions during my career I’ve have been asked to teach my DJing skills to others, and until now I always declined, the time never felt right. I wanted to wait until the timing was perfect.
Meanwhile I was privately working on carefully distilling all I had learnt, experienced and demonstrated over the course of my long music career. The result is this Ecstatic Dance DJ Training course which I am now ready, and super excited, to share with you now.
Creating this training involved delving back into my career of over 25 years of music production and DJing and reflecting upon the underground parties, festivals and gatherings I have been involved in. From those in the early days of my career, to those experienced more recently with the Ecstatic Dance festivals and gatherings in Europe. To look anew at the intense preparation, the outcomes, the hours/weeks/month/years spent in the studio honing my craft.
Looking back at the choices I’ve made along the way, to be where I am today. I believe every journey has a purpose, and looking back has enabled me to understand that my personal path leads me here: ready to share and empower others thanks to my own experiences. It gives me profound joy to pass on what I have honed and learned over a lifetime for the benefit of giving others a head start in their music career.
I will be raw and honest with you about the realities of DJing. Your first few gigs will see you working like crazy, and more exhausted afterwards than the dancers on the floor! During my first big gig I was so nervous, and my hands were shaking so hard, that I couldn’t get the needle on the record (yes it was back in the days of vinyl!). In those early days I did mess up, I did stop the wrong record or put the wrong tune on, which created the “awkward” drop on the dance floor. But improving and learning is all about experience, and I seek to use mine to teach you how to cope with any situations that may come your way. To be prepared is to be equipped to deal with challenges, and by learning from my experiences you will save yourself years of real life practice.
Sharing music with people, creating magic on the dance floor, being in the flow with the dancers. I will guide you to this state and teach you how to guide others. During the Ecstatic Dance DJ training you are going to learn how to come out of that awkward drop, or how to recover if you put the wrong tune on and how to overcome all other common challenges as a DJ.
You will learn all the tricks and skills you need, and have the knowledge to back them up. I will share with you the magic of DJing and pass on my skills, techniques and advice directly to you on this Ecstatic Dance DJ training course.
I am personally invested in every course I run: your success and development is what I strive to achieve. You will be working with someone who has experienced the highs and lows of a life spent working in Ecstatic Dance DJing, and you will benefit from my experiences as much as from the skills I will teach you. With my help, and your practice, you will emerge from the course energised, radiant and raring to take charge of your own DJing career.
We intentionally keep the class sizes small so that I can give you the upmost attention and guidance during this training. While the training venue has been carefully chosen to promote tranquility, peace and inspiration for your time with us.
I’m looking forward to meeting you soon, Love Kareem Raïhani.
Ps. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send a message and either myself or one of the team will get back to you.
