To kick off our new AIAIAI Discord server, we are running a virtual festival spotlighting the future of the industry.

Over the course of June, we will be bringing together the scene's leading trailblazers to share their unique vision of progression. From the communities pathing the way to a more inclusive ecosystem to those breaking new ground in tech. 

For the Record

SCHEDULE

We have invited multidisciplinary artists Mark Fell and Rian Treanor who will be hosting a synth event focusing on their open online synthesizer and sharing their vision and insights. We invite you to get behind-the-scenes followed by a unique opportunity to co-perform live with Fell, Treanor and a global group of talent. 

For those looking to hone in on their skills as an entrepreneur, Freddy Masters from Keep Hush and Sandy Hagenback AKA Dr Banana will be sharing their learning and successes around starting your own brand in music and what role our community plays in the future of music. 

NFTs and WEB3 are currently the hot topic across all platforms, however, are these really the gold rush or game changer? In this event renowned DJ and label owner Plastician will be diving in to discuss alongside the team from IOM and SODAA.

Rounding the virtual festival off, Deforrest Brown Jr will kick off the conversation with Niks Delancy exploring the interaction between America’s Black Techno scene and the UK’s white dominated scene.

We're bringing together two of underground music's most beloved cult brands, Keep Hush and Dr Banana to share how they fostered their community and forged their unique style in an industry often besieged by half-hearted merch.Together with the Discord audience, they'll be running through, as close to a step-by-step guide as is possible, what you need to do to launch your very own music brand.

NFTs: GOLD RUSH OR GAME CHANGER

Legendary producer and pioneer of the London underground scene, Plastician has worked with dubstep and grime royalty, including the likes of Skepta, Skream & Benga. These days he find himself once again a pioneer in perhaps one of music's biggest next steps, NFTs & Web3. Plastician is joined by Identification Of Music's own, Ed Lloyd and Ikävä Pii from emerging Web3 community SODAA. SODAA is a collective coming together with the shared goal of owning and operating a venue in London, all in a decentralised manner. We'll be inviting the audience to the stage during this talk to have the chance to have your burning questions answered in this divisive and exploratory space.

MAKING DANCE MUSIC BLACK AGAIN

Black Artist Database in broad terms, aims to diversify our music scene from top-to-bottom.DeForrest has a similarly expansive list of accolades to his name, as a theorist, journalist, and curator, he has been instrumental in developing and challenging narratives in music culture. His latest book explores a general history of techno and adjacent electronic music with a focus on Black experiences in industrialised labor systems, and explores the development of on-the-ground culture in relation to a unique American art form.Together they'll be exploring the unique dynamics between the UK & US's underground scenes through the lens of their important work.
