You will be encouraged to participate and collaborate on each other’s productions and create live performances going beyond simple DJ’ing. Post-production includes mixing and mastering and will provide the necessary skills required to complete a project through lab work and mentorship.

My time at Nimbus improved me as a person in many more ways than I expected. I came to Nimbus knowing very little about music, and I left with thousands of plays on my music and shows lined up. I have built a family around Nimbus and I'm staying as involved as I can with the community!
