The world as we know it has changed greatly since the arrival of internet and the evolution of technology. And music is no different. The era of big major label dominion, expensive studios and record deal monopoly has shifted to a direct to fan, do it yourself, independent majors, wild wild west type of scenario. Nowadays, anybody can make music—even from their smartphone—record their voice, create a video and share it with the whole world through social networks. Independent artists are winning Grammy’s with mixtapes, producer/dj’s earn incredible amounts of money to perform their beats and artists are transforming streams into major sources of income. Yet it is a long journey and there is a lot to do, learn and understand before getting to the top…
Music production and the music industry are a complicated maze to navigate, it can take years of experience to achieve a certain level of success. Some, unfortunately, might never make it, and many get into it everyday, chasing the dream, chasing goosebumps or chasing money. Never has there been so much music created and released on the daily with so many different ways to discover and listen to it. Making a way out of the noise is no easy task. But it’s possible! Others have done it, are doing it, and new artists are breaking the mold and setting precedents all the time, even as we write this presentation.
Phenomenons like Hip-Hop, Urban and electronic music have become the most popular styles all over the world. They have influenced the whole industry and created a shift in how the game is played. After the era of the bands, groups, the MC’s, the dj’s and solo artists, producers and beat makers are now at the forefront of pop culture. But it is still a mysterious trade that often works in the shadows.
Even though resources are plentiful across the web, nothing compares to hands on experience, face to face networking and in person learning from those who are doing it. It is with all these things in mind that we created the Music Producer Convention. This event’s goal is to give knowledge, tools and keys to upcoming and established beat makers and producers to take their career to the next level.
The 2 day event will include masterclasses, workshops and keynotes in top notch studio facilities as well as a competition on the first night with chances to get noticed, and win prizes. MPC will play host to world renowned producers who have created successful careers for themselves and are willing to share their knowledge with our attendees. From the creation and production process to music industry tricks and insider tips, MPC will go through it all including business aspects such as sample clearances, placements, publishing, distribution, touring and management.
Whether you’re a new producer making beats in your room, a seasoned producer still striving to earn a living from your art or a successful producer trying to stay on top of your game: Music Producer Convention is for you!
This kind of gathering is rare on the old continent, producers who want to attend such events are forced to go abroad to participate. MPC create a rich european eco-system and a platform for producers to connect, learn and take their music to the next level.
