B.Traits

Eclecticism, evolution, and education are the three intertwining principles that form the foundation of the career of B.Traits. With a journey that has seen her relocate from British Columbia, Canada to London, England, B.Traits has built up a reputation as a trusted and respected DJ, producer, and radio broadcaster.

She vehemently championed cutting edge underground electronic music for 6 years on BBC Radio 1 and continues to present and produce her own radio shows showcasing sounds from across the musical spectrum.

What you'll learn

B.Traits teaches you how to create your own radio show. Whether it's as-live or produced in your DAW, she takes you through the whole process – from concept through to release and promotion. If you've never produced or presented or radio before it can seem quite daunting, but it's actually never been easier to create a show. And this course proves just that.

In this course, B.Traits uses CDJ3000 decks to mix her tracks and Ableton Live with built-in effects to produce her show, but you can follow along with your own tools – the concepts taught can be done on any equipment.
