Beatport announces Beats In School 2019




Beatport has announced the next year-long season of the Beats In School mentorship program, which will deliver all-new opportunities for its four alumni in January 2019.

Launched by Beatport in 2017, Beats In School looks to uncover new and unsigned talent but also provides the tools and mentoring for a lasting career in electronic music. Four winners will receive direct A&R from top label ambassadors representing Dirtybird, Hospital, mau5trap and Second State, one-on-one studio sessions and tutorials, career guidance from industry experts, support from Beatport’s wide network of partners and a coveted prize package featuring industry standard gear from ADAM Audio, Focusrite, Moog, Novation, Roland & WAVES Audio.

Beatport Chief Product Officer, Terry Weerasinghe commented, “Independent record labels are the heartbeat of electronic music, breaking fresh talent every year. The labels involved in this year’s Beats In School have helped launch the careers of artists like Fisher, Rezz, Amelie Lens and Unglued. Beats In School is the program that gives artists the chance to be next year’s big thing – I can’t wait to see who the labels choose!”

The program will be accepting entries from November 13th until December 9th at beatsinschool.beatport.com

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
