DJ/production software company, Serato, are partnering with TEC Leimert, a South L.A. non-profit that focuses on youth enrichment and professional development programs, and the UNDEFEATED Foundation, a non-profit founded by the iconic L.A. sneaker boutique and sportswear brand, to announce a new program called the "Audio Affect Series," a new incubation program for young producers and musicians in South Los Angeles.
Kicking off in late March, the Audio Affect Series is a program offering a series of workshops that allow aspiring beatsmiths of the Leimert Park community, as well as surrounding neighborhoods, to learn tricks of the production trade from professional producers and musicians. The courses will focus on Serato Studio 2.0, Serato's new DAW update. Developed in collaboration with multi-faceted artist and L.A. native Ill Camille, the Audio Affect Series workshops offer hands-on experience for participants and will feature acclaimed L.A. musicians as guest mentors. This summer, Serato plans to officially release a compilation of the best beats and songs created by Audio Affect Series participants, giving the young artists the spotlight they deserve, and ultimately help to amplify and empower young Black creators.
