When AKA Carl reached this point he wanted to develop his skills in music production and the music industry. He attended a CPD in the music industry at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) in 2005; this then allowed him to further study for a degree in Sound Engineering and Design at Manchester’s School of Sound and Recording (SSR). Whist studying AKA Carl worked in the Technics DJ Academy and worked on successfully establishing his Techno label SUB CULT as well as fine-tuning his own style of mixing and producing.
