Belfast techno giants DSNT are launching their latest initiative ‘Studio Sessions’ tonight with long time friend Manni Dee breaking down his track from DSNT Rave Tapes ‘Realness’.

DSNT has announced the first in it’s series of studio sessions which you can access online.  These are aimed towards skill sharing and community learning during quarantine time.As a company who predominantly runs on the cash flow from running events, covid-19 came as a blow to DSNT just as it has for many around the globe.  To tackle this they’re moving their focus over to resources that customers can access digitally, and have released a new print-on-demand clothing line, as well as putting more energy into their social initiative brand Keep It Zesty.

The first in the Studio Sessions series with Manni Dee is a Live production breakdown of his DSNT Rave Tape ‘Realness’.This will stream at 7pm GMT, Friday 24th April & tickets are available via the DSNT website (£4.20).  Ticket holders will also have access to a recorded video of the stream after it’s over.  The stream will air directly over the DSNT website and ticket holders will be sent a unique password to access.
