Today, Miller and Beatport announce the launch of Miller Mix - a global initiative to nurture and celebrate the electronic music talent of the future and bring “Miller Time” to life through the local electronic music scene across six nations; Turkey, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Hungary, Australia and South Africa.

Miller Mix's competition arises from a consistent absence of support within the electronic music scene for aspiring talents looking to kickstart their careers. According to Youth Music, 77% of emerging creatives cite a "lack of industry connections" as a major obstacle to entering the music industry.

Additionally, multiple studies indicate that the electronic music scene cultivates a robust sense of community, with one report’s attendees reporting 75% experiencing a profound sense of belonging. Recognising the significance of social connections for mental well-being, Miller Mix aims to foster camaraderie and promote connection across six events spanning six countries.

Miller Mix will include a competition for electronic music producers to help launch their careers, followed by six iconic events with major headliners, including Lilly Palmer (Turkey), Argy (Kazakhstan), Gioli & Assia (Hungary), and more to be announced soon. At the end of each local event, Miller will launch an inspiring docu-series telling the unique stories of local artists and city residents spotlighting the incredible culture from the cities that act as the event’s backdrop.

Beatport Miller Mix Series

The campaign will kick off in each country with an open call for up-and-coming producers to submit their music. A panel formed by the headlining artists of the Miller Mix events, alongside members of the Beatport curation team and the Miller Genuine Draft team will select the winners - votes from the community will also contribute to the decision. The winners will receive a headliner set at the Miller Mix event in their respective territories and a package of benefits curated by Beatport with a value of over €5,000 per winner to support their career development. 

Some of the key elements of the prize package will include:

  • Exclusive educational workshops with Beatport’s team of experts to advance the winner’s career. These will include a social media workshop for artists, a rights management workshop, producer, DJ and live streaming masterclasses, a specialised LabelRadar workshop and, a specialised workshop with Beatport’s Curation team.

  • D16Group’s total bundle includes all plug-ins D16 has ever made; vintage classic emulations, SilverLines effects, Sigmund and Repeater delay units and the flagship synthesiser and Lush 2

  • DJ Studio - One-off Pro License / Mixing Software

The Miller Mix producer competition will first open in Turkey at the end of April, followed by the other territories in the coming months to be announced via www.millermix.beatport.com/

Alongside the established headliner artists, Miller Mix will collaborate with one grassroots music collective from each region that has fostered community in their local scenes. Each collective will help reach the budding producers/DJs in their local communities who are keen to establish a career in the music industry.
