While you can also have a look at another interesting talk, about one of the hot topics that are shaking the undergroung electronic music and the EDM scene: “Can You Buy Success in Electronic Music?”
The potential for quick gain can be attractive for some labels and artists with the growing pressure to buy likes, fans, or plays. Mark Lawrence (Association for Electronic Music), set the scene for this important topic and was joined by Clark Warner (Beatport), Eelko Van Kooten (Spinnin Records), Martin Carvell (DJ Magazine), Nick Matthews (CODA Agency), and Ralf Kollmann (Mobilee Records).
