Artists & workshop info

DJ KhanFu

Adil Khan aka DJ KhanFu began deejaying with as a teenager back in 2010. With a background in Breaking, which originally sparked his interest in music, he naturally progressed towards the art of mixing and cutting. Eventually making the move to Manchester, it wasn't long before he was playing all over the city and for Street dance events around the world. Now established as a go to DJ for some of the biggest events, KhanFu is also teaching deejaying to new and up and coming artists. 

In his workshop (alongside Fayme), he will cover music production basics (creating simple drum grooves and using virtual instruments) and then move on to DJ basics (setup, mixing and scratching). By the end of the workshop, participants will have grasped the very basics of song structure and how DJs use those structures to mix music and also create their own songs.

Also catch DJ KhanFu at MSB on Saturday 3rd June, where he'll be providing the soundtrack to the dance battes alongside DJ Fayme!

Back & white photo of JPDL witing lyrics
JPDL is a hip hop artist from the UK, having been introduced to the world of music by his father. He has a style of rhyming which walks the line between spoken work and rap, lrycism and MCing. This melding of styles has led JPDL to find a spot in the scene which he calls home! Cross genre collaborations has seen him team up with a range of artists including Rider Shafique, Micall Parkunsun, Baileys Brown & Yogi Beats. His creative partnerships aren’t limited to UK soil either, as demonstrated on Tales From Planet If, which was the brainchild of JPDL and Polish artist, Heron M.W.M.

In JPDL's workshop, participants will learn how to create and recite a completely fresh rap. Working as a group to come up with a subjet matter and craft lyrics, some might want to step in front of the decks and have a go on the mic!

For over 18s, catch JPDL with new band Dub Catalyst at Gloucester Guildhall on Friday 2nd June - happening as part of GloStir Hip Hop Funk & Soul - the perfect pre-cursor to MSB!
