ADE in general ánd ADE Global Sessions Mumbai feature an extensive series of panels and workshops all based around the theme of How to Kickstart Your Career. So get your demos ready and bring your best tracks along to the event.
ADE is as much about the next generation of producers and DJs as it is about the existing musical hierarchy. The event offers multiple opportunities to hear the hard-won experience of established talent, and find the best ways to raise your game. Among the opportunities to meet and benefit from the experience of seasoned professionals are the classic, long-running ADE panels, Demolition and Demopitch.
Demolition Panel / Demopitch
Demolition is the legendary panel that typically brings ADE’s Saturday sessions (ADE Next) to a close. It is a celebration of what makes music great, characterised by the insight and deep knowledge of the celebrity panelists, as well as raw enthusiasm from the young producers whose music is suddenly thrust into the spotlight. Demopitch offers the unique opportunity of having a professional all to yourself for a 15 minute, one-on-one session. You can expect to get advice and tips on advancing your career, how to target the right people, and some pointers as to how to optimise your sound and production talents.
On top of that there is a whole series of Artist MusicTalks where we go deep into what makes and sustains a career featuring Sandro Silva (NL), Tommie Sunshine (US), and Chocolate Puma (NL) with more names to be announced very soon. And we all know how important social media is to artists so we have brought together several experts in this field including Shaan, Joshi, Sartek, who will be giving up some of their secrets and revealing which platforms they prefer, the reasons why they prefer them and which platforms are best for specific outreach campaigns or for certain tribes and sub-groups.
Building an international career
There will also be a series of highly personal talks on Building an International Career with a selection of true industry giants including Brandon Frankel from Paradigm Talent Agency (formerly The Windish Agency), and Luis Estrada of Universal Music. They will drawing on their vast experience in order to lay out the realities and challenges of establishing and maintaining an international career, as well as offering examples of acts they have worked with and how they helped them navigate the path to success and beyond. We are also running a series of production masterclasses, workshops with Pioneer, Native Instrumtens and Ableton demonstrating their latest gear and innovations, an RBMA Modular workshop, and a DJ Performance masterclass from Point Blank Music School.
