Daniel Beswick, who runs our ROC Café Radcliffe project and is also a member of our staff team, has a passion to use the skills he has developed in DJ and production work.

Thanks to securing a bid through Bury Council and Greater Manchester Police Crime Commissioners Fund, he is able to launch an off-shoot of the ROC Café and pilot a 10 week DJ academy. Over 20 of the young people at Radcliffe ROC Café have already signed up and the pilot is ready to be launched.


There is a real sense of excitement to learn new techniques and develop new skills from basic beat matching through to developing 5 minute mini mixes.

Daniel believes that off the success of this pilot we can see many more young people across the country learn and take part in ROC DJ Academies.
