“The Sessions”
Are you serious about your music? Are you looking to make this your livelihood? Or are you just wondering how this whole crazy business works?
No matter where you are in your career, where you want to take it or even are just curious, “The Sessions” are something you should attend!

Our panels and workshops are designed to educate both the seasoned and those just starting out. We also welcome the “just curious”!
Here we’ll present new ideas, discuss industry issues, build new inroads for business development, connect people and have fun doing it!

Although informative and educational, we offer a relaxed atmosphere with open forums and interactive workshops so you can be upfront and personal with some of the hottest taste makers in the biz!

We don’t really get into that whole “school room” setting either so it’s more like hanging in your living room at home and the person sitting next to you just happens to be someone pretty well known and connected.

Speakers and panelists include artists, producers, managers, record label executives, entertainment attorneys, media and PR moguls such as some of these past speakers – Sunshine Jones – Treehouse Muzique, Zoltar – Planet Zoltar, Lonnie Fisher – Ultraworld, Fiona Bloom – The Bloom Effect, Martin Atkins – Invisible Records, TC Izlam – Zulu Nation, Junior Goris – Team Pitbull and Ultra Nate’ – Deep Sugar Music.

Here’s what’s up for “The Sessions” 2013!

Girlz Rule!
Let’s hear it for & from the ladies behind the decks, scene and boards.

Find out in this candid discussion between female DJs, producers, singers, sound engineers, lighting techs, promoters and managers

Beats & Business… The Business of “The Biz”
So you’ve played a few parties, produced some of your own tracks and gotten 1000’s of likes on Facebook or SoundCloud… so where’s the big bucks?? Should you have a manager and/or booking agent? How do you protect yourself and your music and understand the legalese of it all?
If you’re serious about music as a career, this is a “not to miss” discussion between those accomplished in their chosen fields and those who have helped them get there.

Our Cultural Responsibility
Dance music and it’s culture thrived for years on an underground existence but that is changing as it becomes more mainstream which also means more open to criticism from the media and society in general. With the large amount of people joining our scene there is also a devastating amount of ways our culture is being depicted as the experience of our music has become synonymous with negative actions. A change is in order as we have to consider how the inherent social consequences of today’s actions will translate into tomorrow’s existence.
