DJ Irie already reaches thousands of revelers on a regular basis as the official DJ of the Miami Heat, but soon the celebrity spinner will be targeting an all-new audience on all new terrain as the chief instructor of a first-of-its-kind DJ academy at sea. The academy, dubbed DJ Irie Spiniversity, is a partnership with Carnival Cruise Lines and will train DJs to perform on the company's various cruises. “Miami Heat games are known for their high-energy and non-stop fun created by DJ Irie and we want to tap into his unique skills and passion for music to create an unforgettable atmosphere on board,” said Mark Tamis, Carnival’s senior vice president of guest operations in a statement.
Graduates of Irie's academy will spin during deck parties, in the atrium during embarkation, poolside, and at other venues around the ship, in addition to the nightclubs.
Record and upload a 7 – 10 minute video of your live performance. The performance can be anywhere from a live show or in the comfort of your bedroom or basement. Just as long as you display what you do and how you do it. In the video, please position your recording device to where we see your hands, and the equipment you are using in the shot. For live performances, we especially need to see some “crowd interaction”. It’s important that we see how you sound & comfort level on the microphone. In this video you should be interacting with your live audience. For all other recordings that aren't recorded in front of a live audience, use your creativity vocally to engage your "imaginary" crowd. Upload this video to either youtube.com or vimeo.com and then submit the link to the video with your application form below.
Record and upload a 20 minute “Open Format” music mix of either one of your live shows or in the studio.

Upload this mix to a service such as soundcloud.com and then submit the link to the audio file with your application form below.
