Amsterdam Dance Event Has Ended and I Had a Great Time

Very well, ADE 2012 has wrapped up, and I had a wonderful time: I attended several excellent talk panels with EDM industry’s gurus. I hung out with Carl Cox. I interviewed the director of music for Last.fm Chris Price. I chilled with Danny Tenaglia, Armin van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Laidback Luke…. and lots more. I also recorded and uploaded to YouTube a simple video of my first EDM song (FuseRave). I also recorded lots of video materials during ADE, many of which can be found on this website. Finally, I did some research on building my online identity as an electronic music producer…..

ADE 2012 Summary

So, if you followed my online activity during the past week, you noticed a couple of my new blog posts, which I actually found the time to write between ADE conference events and partying. To find ADE-related videos on this site, you can click here. What I realized is that it is impossible to post all my video content at once: all those cool videos I recorded need heavy processing in FinalCut Pro before they can look good and can be uploaded to YouTube. So, my videos will be released slowly, and mostly after my return to the USA.

Overall, Amsterdam Dance event was simply a huge inspiration for me: I learned a million things about the EDM industry, and I understood how to promote my talent (which is not easy, but more about that in upcoming posts). Most of all, I recognize, as I stated in my previous weekly update, that making good music is just the first step (and a relatively small one) in building my EDM audience. And so, it is with full heart that I am getting ready to fly back to the USA and to start working on my social networks, on website plugins, and on connecting with people that will eventually make a difference in my music career.

What Happens Next Week

  1. I am still in Amsterdam for the next few days. My plan for the next week is this:
  2. Catch up on sleep
  3. Make it on time to the airport and return safely
  4. Publish at least 2 cool ADE videos
  5. Understand what’s involved in building a social network around my new music business

Until next week… And please remember to subscribe if you want to be notified when I post new content. Remember that by becoming a member in this free website you are also automatically entered to win a free iPad (details).
