In association with Music+ we're delighted to welcome 25 year old producer, MC & DJ, Konchis, to the festival this year to facilitate a workshop on recording, sampling and controlling using cutting-edge groove production. Available for 14-19 year olds.
Konchis is a 25 year old producer, MC & DJ rapidly gaining attention for his unique style and versatility when it comes to crafting beats.
He’s part of Scotland’s notorious hip hop crew “The Being” and also writes electronic/synth/bass music under the alias Jetsam. Being the son of Mr. Defy, from the critically acclaimed II Tone Committee, he has had music in his blood from birth.
His production styles vary from classic 90's boom-bap to the futuristic, and everything in between.
Community centre facility owned and operated by local community charity Newton Stewart Initiative.
