Join Luca Pretolesi the day following Dancefair 2018 for his very first Creative Mixing Workshop. Here you can get a first hand, insider look at how Luca attacks his mixes with artists like Steve Aoki, Major Lazer, DVBBS, Merk &  Kremont, Pegboard Nerds, and NGHTMRE and many more. 


In this workshop, Luca will show you his creative approach on his mix for M-Phazes featuring  Ruel. You will learn what inspired all of Luca’s decisions throughout the mixing stage like why he chose that amount of reverb on Ruels vocals, or the amount of delay that was added to bring energy to the build and more. Don’t miss this limited opportunity to learn first hand from a Grammy-nominated engineer.                   


Luca will be sharing with you his mindset for creative mixing and mastering, which has earned him his position as an elite mix/mastering engineer within the music industry. Now you have the opportunity to meet him and learn first in person. Throughout Dancefair weekend, Luca will be hosting several 45 minute clinics. See the times and locations below.


Private Classes


Our private training sessions cover a range of advanced mixing, mastering and production topics with each session catering directly to the individual. Here is how it works. After completing a simple questionnaire and having a quick consultation with our Education Department, we take some time to review the material and put together a curriculum specifically for each private lesson. We then present the “innovator” with the outline for the private lessons and choose a schedule that works best for both of us.

All private workshops cost $500/hour which covers preparation, consultation and instruction. Our minimum duration is 2 hours.

Advanced workshop

Presented by: Luca Pretolesi


This live interactive online workshop will cover advanced mixing and mastering of electronic music as only Luca Pretolesi’s Studio DMI concept could instruct. Musicians and engineers who want to learn the exact mix strategies used on many of the world’s largest club singles can join along with Luca from the comfort of their own home or studio. During the 3-day workshop, “innovators” will sit in their own sweet spot and follow along as we dissect an electronic music mix from a professional producer.
