Since its inception back in 2009, the CDJ Show and Conference has maintained their vision as an industry initiative that is “For people in the electronic music industry and DJ Culture.” This year’s event will host some of the industry’s most influential and active members including recording artist and Music Director of the disco band The Trammps, Earl Young, master of mixing Ben Liebrand, Editor at DJ Magazine Sarah Polonsky, Dancing Astronaut Managing Editor Will McCarthy, Director of Toolroom Records Stuart Knight, DJ-Producers Funkagenda and Eddie Amador, and long-time businessman Disco Donnie, to name a few.

Particularly exciting, is the addition of several new panels to the 2017 program including ‘Women in Dance Music’ and ‘Digital Marketing: How to Get the Media’s Attention’. In conjunction, attendees can partake in ‘Songwriting: How to Write a Hit Dance Song’ and ‘The Annual Industry Panel’. It wouldn’t be the music industry if there wasn’t networking involved! Thus, the ‘GetSigned: Artist and Label Networking Event’ will give patrons the opportunity to be in direct contact with the top record labels. 

On Friday, March 10, back for another year is the Toolroom Academy with a fresh, new masterclass lead by Funkagenda and Stuart Knight. Participants will be given the chance to win 2 hours of one on one production time with Funkagenda, following the masterclass!
