More Authority Added To WEMC Judging Panel
Earlier this month we announced the arrival of the World Electronic Music Contest (WEMC) to Australia. Given the pools of young up and coming producers all over this country it only makes sense that the World Electronic Music Contest would branch to our shores for the latest leg of its prize.
This is a huge competition and a really unique opportunity to have your beats heard by a plethora of industry big guns. We can now happily announce that absolute industry legend Aden Mullens will be joining the already boss panel of judges that will be convening the inaugural competition. Mullens joins leading electronic duo SCNDL, Ministry of Sound A&R Dylan Sanders, Studio 301‘s Ben Feggans with another name to be announced in the coming weeks. He has over 10 years experience in the music industry with a particular flair for developing new artists.
Mullins is the top dog at indie record label etc etc; home to electro wizkid Kilter whom he also manages as well as Luke Million, Paces and PNAU. Before that he called the Ministry of Sound home working in A&R and as a compilations manager you can basically thank him for the success of Tommy Trash and more recently Uberjak’d or for anyone of the 20 something unique compilations released by Ministry of Sound since 2009. It’s safe to say this guy has a pretty good ear when it comes to electronic music.
Just to recap this is seriously one of the biggest and most exciting competitions of its kind with the winner receiving the opportunity to engineer and produce in Studio 301, international release though Ministry of Sound, a slot in 2 of Australia’s most iconic clubs, a bunch of latest toys from Native Instruments and mentoring from 2 prominent electronic acts add this to the mountains of shoulder rubbing you’ll be doing with industry execs and the winner just might have themselves a nice little music career to look forward to. This is an opportunity not to be misses and registrations have already opened!!
