Get DJ Lessons From Skrillex!


Okay maybe you can’t, but Ron Howard did. That’s right, the same man who directed films like The Da Vinci Code and Apollo 13, has now made a documentary called Made in America, based on Jay Z‘s festival of the same name.

In the video below, you can see the old school director is having a bit of a tough time getting his mixing right. Skrillex teaches him how to put on the headphones, in a setup consisting of two CDJ 2000s and a DJM 900 mixer.

Jay Z’s festival features a lot of prominent names from the EDM industry, and he had this to say about it:

“EDM music, people are dismissing as a fad, sort of like they did hip-hop. I think it’s gonna be a bit more sticky. I think it’s the music of the next generation… They’ll buy other music, but it’s like, OK, this music is ours.”
