And that’s a wrap on the 2024 cohort of FBi Radio Dance Class! For the past three months Attu, Galiba, Heads, Killian, Lau, and Maim have attended a series of masterclasses as part of our fem, trans, and non-binary dance music mentorship program FBi Radio Dance Class. They’ve been trained by industry heavyweights including Tangela, Isa, D-Grade, and FBi Radio programming team Freya Shields and Bindi Mutiara.

The trainees have learnt everything from mixing skills on CDJ’s and vinyl, to running their own events, to hosting live radio. We also paired them with mentors at the station for a month-long radio residency, which culminated with a live featured mix on air.

The program wrapped up on May 31 with a graduation showcase at Club 77. Our six trainees hit the decks hard from 9pm to 5am, with Valerie Joy on site to capture the action.

They join an impressive alumni, many of whom have gone on to have international DJ careers, play major festivals, host national radio, and become leading figures in the local dance music community, with their own events series, club nights and radio shows.

Extra special shoutout and thank you to Tangela, the Dance Class coordinator (and former trainee herself).
