Vent is expanding the Just Checking In Podcast with the launch of a new series called ‘Behind The Decks’, designed to give music producers and DJs a voice and shine a light on their music and mental health journeys respectively.
The series will sit within the Just Checking In Podcast and builds upon Vent’s mission to provide a safe space where people can open up about their mental health issues, break down stigmas and start conversations.
The music industry is often portrayed as a highly-glamourised environment, full of excessive lifestyles and non-stop parties, with the DJ at the epicentre of it.
However, behind every DJ or producer is a person, with their own story and their own mental health to manage.
In this series, we’ll be checking-in with DJs and producers from the UK music scene and beyond, discussing their musical journeys, their artistry and most importantly, the person behind the decks.
Freddie Cocker, Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Vent said: “I’m thrilled to be bringing ‘Behind The Decks’ into the Just Checking In Podcast family. Some of the most unforgettable and magical moments in my life have taken place in the middle of a dark and sweaty nightclub or a field at sunset, dancing to joyous records played by my favourite DJs. Without the DJ, I wouldn’t have those memories. I hope this new series lets DJs and producers alike know that it’s always okay to vent”.
The first episode of Behind The Decks will be launching very soon.
