The aim of our first full day of the retreat is to evaluate your current level, asses the areas where you want to improve and then tailor the learning experience to fit your needs during the coming days. You will spend an intensive DJ technique session with one of our DJ mentors and will have an intimate 2 hour workshop with your chosen production mentor. You will also spend time with our marketing, branding and industry experts to audit your current profile and will be asked to set some S.M.A.R.T goals for your time at the retreat.
After our initial assesment day you will be placed into groups of two which will remain your pairing for the rest of the retreat. Your pairing will be based on your current level and your preferred production software. After a healthy breakfast has been digested, you are your new collaboration partner will begin your rotation of intensive workshops with our Orbit mentors. After lunch we begin the second half of the day with an industry insights talk with one of our special guest mentors followed by jumping back into your pairs and continuing your rotation round the DJ technique, production and personal development workshops. We end the day with a voluntary guided meditation and breath work class to calm our minds.
We start the day with an energising yoga sessions, the perfect way to begin an intensive advanced training day. Picking right back up from where we left it the day before, we dive right back into our learning workshops. We delve deeper into more advanced DJ techniques with pioneer equipment experts taking you through all the latest hardware, we start to further develop our understanding of the production lessons from our chosen software and we start to have a better understanding of the direction in which we want to take our artist profile when we return back to the real world. We'll also start to put together tracks, samples and original edits ready for our live performance on the final day. As with the previous day, we'll be joined by an industry leading expert for a sofa talk after lunch and will end the day with more mindfulness and personal development.
We again start the day with a Yoga session for anyone to drop into, followed by getting straight into a full back to back day of live DJ sets. Your technical DJ skills have been elevated, you've shared music with mentors and other retreat attendees, you have new samples and acapellas added to your toolkit and you may have even produced a new track or edit to test out. You're ready to go! The final full day at the retreat is a celebration of everything you have learned and all the connections you have made and once the pressure is off from your live performance, you can either dive straight back into further learning with our mentors, or un wide by the pool with a pina colada. We end the final night with a big party at a location TBA.
Feeling empowered by the knowledge that's been gained and the friends that have been made, we say our goodbyes, pack up our equipment and check out of our rooms at 11am.

Orbit DJ Retreats have been carefully designed as an enthusiastic, vibrant and collaborative environment for learning and creative expression. There is a lot of content to the course and the intensive learning may not be for everyone, but what you get out of it will be extremely rewarding. Orbit is also a fun environment, but we do not encourage heavy drinking or partying during the retreat, our main aim is to elevate our learning and encourage others to do the same, so lights out at midnight is advised most nights. We also find that the shared room experience really help to bond the group, so there are no private rooms available and the allocation of each bed in each room will be based on first come first serve.
“Was really cool being part of such a well organised, informative, fun retreat, and in what better location to do it than Ibiza. The actual location is perfect, and gives you plenty of space to work on your own music, and develop skills with all up to date equipment. I loved being able to freely chat to the students in both a group and one on one, and be able to share my experiences and how I started out J”
Juliet Fox (Drumcode) (Orbit DJ Retreat mentor)
Doorly single handedly raised my performance levels to a new height, explaining everything in a clear and precise way. On top of working with one of the most sought after DJ/Producers in the world he is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I will be booking with him again to continue improving my skills. Since being taught by Doorly I’ve since gone on to join the Reptile Dysfunction family as an artist, with my release played by Marco Carolla and Jamie Jones, and I’m also employed as part of the label management team.
Matt Hobin "Hobbs" DJ & Producer (UK)
DOORLY really understood my sound, showed me how to do everything with more ease, flair and confidence and gave me a whole bag of new tricks to boot. He is the most technically brilliant DJs I have met and is a wizard at passing that knowledge on. On top of this, he has the knowledge to see you where you are in your career and thne take that to a level you didn’t know was possible. I simply wouldn’t be the DJ and Producer I am right now without his mentorship.
Samuel Roukin “Roukin” Actor, DJ & Producer (UK)
From the moment I mentioned the Tan-Dem project Doorly was on board mentoring me every step of the way. Under his stewardship I've played on the same bills as some of the greatest our scene has to offer, MK, Claude Von Stroke, Annie Mac, to name a few, and our styles seemed to compliment eachother in such a way that collaboration was inevitable. It was slightly less than a year from the date of our first release that I was playing Ministry of Sound with three of our tracks in my set having been released on labels as prestigious as Dirty Bird, Cross Town Rebels and of course our home...Reptile Dysfunction
Danny Taylor (Tan-Dem)
I first met Doorly at a secret villa after-party where he only had one USB and the decks were not linked so he asked me to play b2b with him. This was a dream come true for me and we've been mates ever since! The next time we met I was playing my first ever set at Cafe Mambo and he came and asked me what song I was playing and told me he liked my style. After that I started making music for him and his label Reptile Dysfunction, I also ended up playing back to back with him at Cafe Mambo. My first release on his label was called ‘Pawn The Monkey’ which was part of his Young UN's EP. This was then followed up with a remix of "Idris Elba” and “Back Talk, Paradise" before I released my first solo EP on vinyl which sold out almost immediately. Through Doorly’s help and guidance I've managed to release my music to the world and also DJ in unbelievable places like the legendary Pikes Ibiza.
I wouldn’t be who I am and where I am today if it wasn’t for Doorly believing in me and pushing and encouraging me to be a DJ. Whilst learning to beat match he was the one who said “one day it will just click” and it did, luckily enough after many hours! Through many all nighters collecting music together, (I am still taking credit for the Dizzee remix btw) he crafted my approach to playing and reading crowds and inspired me to be versatile in my sets and open to all music. His many years of experience, technical ability and the fact he is an all round good human makes him one of the best.
I’ve been booking Doorly over the past decade at leading nightclubs both in the UK and in the US. He’s renowned for being a technically gifted, versatile DJ, hence being in the rare position of being one of Pioneer’s “go to” guys whenever they’re testing and developing new equipment. He has a very caring nature, he thrives on helping and sharing his knowledge with others, be it aspiring young DJs or friends in the industry. He’s constantly approaching me with new emerging talent he feels should be on my radar to book at venues and he always keeps an eye out for business opportunities that would be beneficial to me. Working with Doorly is having someone who always has your back. He’s the perfect person to be tutoring and mentoring DJs at every level, from fledgling bedroom DJs, to those looking to break through to the next stage in their career.
Nik Wilson - Booker & Promoter (UK / LA)
Doorly is an inspiration in djing and production, it was such an honour to learn from a real legend in the industry. I couldn’t recommend Doorly enough, working with him has not only helped me to progress skills but he also opened the door for me in Ibiza. I will be going back to the island to work with Doorly again later in the year. He is a legend, a super talented DJ and producer who has remained humble, always positive and a great person to work with.
One of the nicest and grounded people I’ve met and considering the stature (and the busy schedule) he has, Doorly always finds time to reply to my messages and guide me in the right direction for the very best of help.
“The level of support and knowledge I received from the mentors while attending the Orbit DJ Retreat was outstanding. As an attendee, I had the opportunity to sit down with AAA class artists and acquire essential constructive feedback on my productions. One of the mentors, Matt Robson-Scott from the world-class duo Gorgon City, who, after listening to some of my tracks, even asked if he could sign one to his label Realm Records! This one-on-one experience and feedback from high-class artists is such a unique service and, in my opinion, is an absolute gamechanger. Since the retreat, my music has seen support from world-class acts such as Rufus Du Sol, Eric Morillo, and Yousef and has undoubtedly helped make waves with my music career. I highly recommend Orbit DJ Retreat to any serious producer who wants to take their career to the next level.”
TAYA (Circus Recordings / Realm Records) (Orbit DJ Retreat graduate)
The best person! More Doorly's need to live amongst us on this planet 🌍 guided and helped me through my career 100% recommended.
The best person! More Doorly's need to live amongst us on this planet 🌍 He has guided and helped me throughout my career Jay Newman Meeting Doorly via Danny Savage / DJ Growth Lab in the UK meant that I was finally able to work with a real professional who could assess my ability and identify what I had the potential to do after years of trying by myself.
It's not just Doorly's in-depth knowledge that is a differentiator, it's the way that he engages with you across all subjects. This aides in making the whole process as efficient and effective as possible.
DJ ! Mark
What a guy Doorly is, I’m proud to have him as a mentor and would recommend him to anyone who wants to not only learn about DJing and production, but everything about the music industry.
Doorly is a genius when it comes to coaching and mentoring. He extremely knowledgeable and easily adapts to your needs. He is very patient and always takes time to explain things properly. I can't wait to get more coaching with him at one of the Orbit retreats soon.

Our first Orbit DJ Retreat of 2020 was due to take place in May around the opening parties and closing retreat was due to take place in October around the closing parties, but the world had other plans for us. Orbit still could have gone ahead in October, however it didn't feel like the responsible thing to do.
Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic we have been in constant conversation with our resort in Ibiza, monitoring airlines, travel quarantine and monitoring announcements from each relevant governments. Due to the continued travel restrictions, Orbit will now take place from April 25th - 30th in the home of dance music capital of the world, Ibiza.
Orbit launched in 2019 in Ibiza and had plans to take place in unique locations across the world, however right now the focus in towards the opening retreat in Ibiza. Orbit DJ Retreats are immersive and holistic learning experiences for DJs and producers to elevate their skills and knowledge to the next level as a global destination event.
After our postponement, Orbit was delighted that the vast majority of customers have decided to take the option of moving their booking. Orbit is continuing to take government and local authority advice in regards to our April retreat which as it stands will continue as planned, however we can assure all existing and any new customers that if due to the global pandemic the retreat is unable to take place in April, then customers money is safe and the option of moving the booking to closing parties around 2021or receiving a refund will be be offered, including our non refundable deposit.

Foe the meantime, the team has put together a "directory" of Orbit favourite mentors offering their bespoke and intimate online tutoring sessions. This directory will enable you to contact each of the mentors the retreat works with and speak directly to them about your needs for elevating your music careers. Orbit will not take a commission for these services, therefore prices can remain extremely affordable and the cost of the 1-1 sessions will go directly to the mentors. More details on this to follow in the coming days.

UK & SPAIN GOVT INSO
One of our co-founders Doorly answered this question for us and here's what he said –
”I started my career in a bar collecting glasses, I absolutely loved music and was collecting records at home and one week the opportunity finally came up when the regular dj never showed up and I bravely stepped in to cover having never played to a venue or people before. I managed to get the gig on a regular basis and was soon playing 6 / 8 /10 /12 hour shifts and pushing myself and teaching myself all the time. I wish i had someone to show me the ropes then that would have fast tracked my learning and help me avoid some big mistakes along the road of djing 20 years later Im now a global ambassador for Pioneer but still learning constantly and looking at my peers and industry leaders for inspiration and new challenges. There’s no level that is too basic or too advanced to join us."
