AFTER PARTY: Music Conference Asia Music Factory “The Beginning” @ KL Live (21/11/2009)

The Story Begins...

What went down at the Music Conference Asia (M.C. Asia) last week? Mentoring session by two cool international DJs and loud-thumping music! :D

The inaugural Music Conference Asia (M.C.Asia) Music Factory “The Beginning” has successfully attracted conference participants, both industry professionals and music enthusiasts of the Electronic Dance Music, from the region, including Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, Japan and Thailand just to name a few.

You guys should have come early to hear the mentoring workshops presented by Canadian Producer, DJ and Label Owner, DJ Preach, and World’s Top 100 DJ, Marcel Woods from the Netherlands. Indeed, it was very informative. This is the first in our shores, event in the Asia Pacific, whereby conference participants received first hand introduction and guidance from Preach and Marcel about the professional world of music production

The first session of the workshop, Preach spoke on three key topics including the “Marketing Strategy for Professional DJs”, “The Love-hate Relationship between Technology and Traditional DJ-ing”, and “Knowing Your Tools to be the One in Music Production”. In the second session, Marcel touched on “The Evolution of Music Label”, “The Challenges in the Digital Age”, and “Artist development and Music Label Promotions”. Very, very interesting.

After the serious talk, the organizer has also thrown an appreciation party in the evening to entertain and reward everyone. Besides international headliners Preach and Marcel Woods, the no.1 most popular Nordic DJ 2008, Marcus Schossow was also invited to perform at the party, supported by our local talents Affiq and Funko Munky.

Among all DJs played that night, I'm surprise with the sound of Preach. His music is awesome! I wasn't really partying hard that night but his mix got me in the mood! Kudos to the man.

The party attendance was good. Wanna know something? Global Sound Masters will be contributing RM2 to the “GSM Music Fund” for every ticket sold. The money collected will go towards the nurturing of new talents in the region. We have done something good for the industry! :)

Look out for the second installment of M.C. Asia. It's gonna be happening on January 23 next year. Richard Durand and Sean Tyas will be playing for the appreciation night! I know you don't want to miss this.

Will update you on that soon! Now let's move on with some party pics!
