It it's not a fad or trend it's been -- that's been with us -- decades and decades and decades there's been a resurgence of interest in it lately.

And so much has changed it's just.
People can now access music so easily than they tried before to be able to have 5000 songs on something the size of of a credit card just makes music so democratize and easily accessible that some more people are empowered to become DJ's.

-- DJ's are today's rock stars ubiquitous in our culture and that's exactly why founded -- music group and scratch DJ academy really was to lower the barrier to entry for people interest in the art form.
But also to consolidate a very fragmented space and -- -- noticed that.
And -- jays really are everywhere in our culture but the barrier to entry for learning was extremely high.
And there was no marquee brand or consolidations space that's why we found -- the company to address that.
So in terms of the barrier being so high with the academy the demand to learn outweighed the supply teachers where did you go to learn right it just was no place to go.
So -- lower that barrier to entry in the equipment was expensive and now it's become less expensive but hard to navigate.
