Who Are We?

We’re a UK based company built from a small team of dedicated DJ’s who have worked in the industry for many years. We love music and have a passion for technology in the DJ industry. Our team are always experimenting, mixing, scratching and developing their own skills. Some of which you can see in our weekly #SundayDJSkills videos.

What We Do

We have product specific and software specific DJ courses available. They can help you get started or take your skills to a more advanced level. These courses have been designed from years of teaching DJs one to one and understanding the pains and problems you may have when learning new skills. Our DJ courses also provide access to various tools such as free music download packs, beat matching tools and Crossfader scratching loops. These tools have been designed specifically to help you learn, something you won’t find anywhere else.

Our team also creates product reviews to help aid your purchasing decisions and showcase the latest DJ products.

Our Story

How did Crossfader start?

Let’s go back…

Hey I’m Jamie the owner, but more importantly, DJ tutor here at Crossfader. However, my story didn’t start here. It started over a decade ago when I was a 16 year old wannabe DJ in my bedroom. I had the dream, just like most new DJs.

I realised I could take my passion for music and be creative. It was way back when two turntables and a basic 2 channel mixer were the norm and CDJs had just become mainstream.

I was a kid obsessed with music, DJing and nightlife. The next 6-8 years of my life saw me hold residencies at some of the leading clubs around the UK, play alongside DJs such as Hardwell, Laidback Luke, Jazzy Jeff, Fatboy Slim & Martin Garrix to name a few. I had the opportunity to play at major festivals such as V Festival, T in the Park and Wildlife Festival, as well as in Ibiza & Croatia.

I was so grateful for all these opportunities and experiences but after nearly a decade it was time for the next chapter. I really wanted to pass all the knowledge I had gained working in the industry along. That’s where you come in!

Crossfader begins…

It was May 2014 and I decided to rent a run down office in my hometown. I laid a floor for the first time thanks to YouTube, painted the space and got it in working order. It was just me on a mission to help people.

I used the studio to teach one to one lessons for anybody that wanted to learn. It was amazing to see the transformation in people. The curriculum I developed was aimed at helping people avoid all the mistakes I made along the way and teach exactly what people needed to know. It was a course that I wish I'd had access to when I first started out.

2 years after launching Crossfader we were becoming a very popular place to learn. However, the problem was we didn’t have the capacity to teach everyone. This didn’t sit well with me, so thats how ‘Crossfader - The Online DJ School’ was launched.

Becoming an online DJ school…

My aim has always been to help as many people as possible. I filmed tutorials, packaged up my knowledge and turned the curriculum into an online course.

The most amazing thing happened. Since creating that course we’ve been able to help over 1000 students from 50+ different countries worldwide. We’ve also managed to develop a wide range of courses across different equipment, skill levels and software to improve the learning experience. Our DJ courses can help you get started or help transform your skills and creativity as a DJ.

I’m also grateful that since going online Crossfader has been able to work with some of the leading DJ brands like Serato DJ & Denon DJ. We hope to bridge the gap between DJs worldwide and the hardware/software manufacturers, providing a voice and platform for both sides of the industry.
