One of the best A-Trak at Scratch DJ Academy!

Blast From The Past

It’s amazing how much things can change in 10 years.

Scratch DJ Academy has a new HQ in NYC. We have added two amazing locations in Los Angeles and Miami and now teach the art of DJing to over 50,000 people a year. Not to mention you can now take courses in Music Production with some of the best instructors in the game!

Not only has Scratch changed but the DJ game has changed too. Individuals and groups of DJs are selling out major concert venues all over the world. There are huge multi-day 100,000+ person festivals dedicated to DJs and the top selling DJs are being revered as modern day rock stars with the fans, music and money to prove it.

There is one thing that hasn’t changed. Great DJs continue to spin incredible sets. Here’s a perfect example: 10 years ago on February 28, 2002,  A-Trak stopped by our studio in NY and did what he does best. Check it out:
