Start From Scratch has been created to support minoritised and underrepresented communities. Our goal is to create a safe and productive space to nurture talent from these communities.

Pioneer DJ have a commitment to making sure that there is increased diversity within our industry. We know from research that targeted events like these help close the gap.

Representing Underrepresented Communities

Our first Start From Scratch series of 2023 will be supporting women and female-identifying persons via free DJ, Scratch and music production workshops across Europe.

Free workshops give people the chance to learn the basics of DJing, improve their skills and gain insight to Schools. Be sure to check out the Events page to see where your closest session is.

Following the first session, some participants may be contacted and invited into our Start From Scratch Opportunities programme, including a full D course at the school, funded by Pioneer DJ
