Time to kickstart your career at ADE University
ADE is about to start off, and so is ADE University. We outlined some of the activities not to miss and some late additions to the program.
After the news updates about Spinnin' Records and the ten reasons to visit ADE Beats, we aim our attention at the highlights of the upcoming ADE University.
ADE University is one of the program parts we are proudest of. It is about young talent coming through, and the excitement of knowing the opportunities we can give them. Aside from that, there are also many panels that form part of the University program.
This year, our topics focus on industry matters. We will find out about the nuts and bolts of dance music in South Korea with our Sweet Seoul Music session, finding out about how running a label has changed over the years with Tiga & Kölsch, looking at New Label Models for the 2020s, and listening to experiences from high achievers in the far east with the Asia Incoming! discussion.
The students will meet the teams behind, STMPD Records, Headhunterz, and Audio Obscura who will bring one of their resident artists Joris Voorn. We will also get into the mechanics of new ways of consuming music with the Fontys ACI session The Power of the Playlist, including hit-maker Jonas Blue and representatives from Spotify, Armada and NoCopyrightSounds. Moreover, we dive into more abstract and free-ranging topics with a vital discussion about Authenticity in the Music Industry, and take a look at dance music's love affair with futurism and sonic fictions with Matrixxman, Sci-Fi author Tim Maughan, and music journalist Joe Muggs.
