Will Kinsella is a Berlin based Techno artist who has lectured at Dublin Institute of Technology, the Sound Training Centre and at the SAE Institute in Berlin. He first learned his craft on Neve/SSL Consoles as a house Engineer at Temple Lane & Grouse Lodge studios, most famously known as the studio where Michael Jackson recorded his last work.

After Temple Lane he went on to engineer, mix and master for other House and Techno artists, recently working as a Studio Technician and Mixing Engineer for Radio Slave and SRVD (Rekids).

As an artist he has performed at some of the worlds leading clubs such as Amnesia & Space Ibiza. His releases under his Hybrasil alias on Rekids, Octopus Records & Break New Soil have garnered support from Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer.

He is now sharing his experience and his journey as an artist through the Elevator Program.

"I developed this program as something I wish I had access when I started out. I believe anyone can make music if they have the passion for it and are willing to commit their time to learning the art and science behind it.

My journey to launching this took 13 years, studying Sound and Music Technology, recording bands, working on analogue consoles, shadowing other engineers, hours and hours of experimentation. I want to make that process easier for others, so they can achieve their goals and enjoy that process."

Brotherhood of the Wolf are a Dublin Techno duo and co-founders of Distrackt Records. Distrackt Records was developed as a platform to break new talent. Their releases have received support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Luigi Madonna, Danny Tenaglia and Slam.

"We first met through the inception phase of the Elevator Program back in 2014. We hit it off from the start, same sense of humour and taste in electronic music. Chatting away we decided to look into setting up doing events within a week that changed to setting up a record label. Now going into our third year running Distrackt Records and not slowing down.

Will is a great mentor, he has such a vast knowledge of music production. We learnt so much from him over the years which we’ll be showcasing under our guise Brotherhood of the Wolf on Distrackt Records. We would highly recommend doing the Elevator Program if you want to get your productions to the next stage. Will has a great approach explaining in detail how to get your productions to the finish line and much more."

“I highly recommend the Elevator Program to anybody interested in getting started in music production or wanting to take their productions to a higher level, the level and quality of detail and support provided is second to none and has been a massive help in taking my tracks to a higher standard and has been a big influence on how I approach a new project and work my way through each track. Would not be where I am today if it wasn't for this course and the help that Will provided me throughout.”

Starting her music career in piano bars, Olympias was drawn to the nightclub scene and has been there ever since. Her radio show on InsomniaFM aired to thousands of listeners and earned her a spot after Chris Liebing’s AM/FM podcast release. She has performed with artists such as tINI, Joey Daniel, Jamie Lie A Kwie and Nakadia.

Focused on mastering Ableton, she completed courses at Elevator Program. Her unique style caught the attention of the DiVISION collective in Pygmalion Dublin, shortly after she became one of their core residents.

"I definitely recommend Elevator Program. I've often found myself not knowing how to start or how to make a track fuller. Working with Elevator Program has helped me break through creatively. Anytime I need inspiration I can go back to a course, start practicing and composing.

Will is a great mentor. His courses on how to use Ableton are very detailed. He also helps with label management and gives guidance about the music industry in general. It's been so worth it. It's the best course I've enrolled in over the years."
