The Class Cuts Scheme of Work continues to gain support and successfully expanded into Wales during 2023. With the continued support from our suppliers, notably Reloop and Magma, we are looking to expand into other UK regions during 2024.

Further information on the Class Cuts Scheme of Work can be found here.


During 2023, Arts Council England approved funding for the Cut Cross Country project. The aim of the project was to provide turntablism and beat making workshops for Visually Impaired (VI) students. Four weekly workshops were delivered during each quarter of the year in Norwich, Worcester, Bromley and Liverpool. Feedback from the workshops was well received and we will continue to build on this initiative.

“Sessions clearly demonstrated what a scratch DJ does, developed basic scratching skills & enabled pupils to creatively express themselves… During the week, parents have got in touch with me to say how enthusiastically their children have been and gone home excitingly & told them about what they have been learning.”  Briony Harris, Music Lead, Clare School

“It felt very special & rare that this series of workshops has been specifically developed for blind & VI students.” Teacher, New College

“All children have enjoyed the sessions & were engaged for the duration… with one child getting visibly upset as he didn’t want this to end.” Kerry Parkinson, Head of Lower School, RSB Liverpool

“One of the most striking moments of the week was the video conferences with American VI & HI DJ NevEd… Pupils were really in awe that NevEd had overcome the barriers in his way & it gave them the sense that they could also defeat obstacles in their way to achieve their ambitions.” Briony Harris, Music Lead, Clare School

“The two Zoom calls with Nev added something particularly unique to the week… This was an opportunity for our students to engage in reflection on what it means to be a VI musician, as well as to ask questions about practicalities & accessibility.” Teacher, New College


Beetgeek 2023 took place from 8th – 10th September at the Hop Kingdom, London. We are grateful for the support and funding from Arts Council England, Westend DJ, Phase, Reloop, Magma, Jesse Dean Designs, Ortofon and RCF. The two-day event hosted by the legendary D-Styles, Ritchie Ruftone and VaZee witnessed many entries with both UK and International competitors.

There were various activites, performances and events during Beatgeek, with the highlight being Portablist Lounge.

The funding secured supported winners from the Battle For Free Passage to finance their travel and accommodation to compete at Portablist Lounge. This valuable sponsorship supported the following overseas competitors; iLL Stylus from Canada, DJ Haruto from Japan, DJ AKA from Austria and finally DJ Kaito from Japan, courtesy of Stokyo sponsorship.

Last year's Champion DJ Prolifix from Los Angeles successfully defended his title, with DJ Kaito second and DJ Haruto coming in third place.


We are entering our 10th year anniversary!

In relation to both the #cutcrosscountry and #beatgeek projects, we are considering the submission of applications to Arts Council England for their continued support.

Have a fantastic leap into 2024.

As always, many thanks for supporting TTW!
