Beatport and Microsoft Surface, the innovative laptop and 2-in-1 brand, are set to bring their Originals² platform to this year’s International Music Summit (IMS), hosting an interactive day of artist-led workshops and DJ & production masterclasses with luminaries from the dance world on Thursday, April 28.

Continuing on their mission to provide the next generation of creators, artists, DJs and producers with innovative tools to empower their creative process, this year’s IMS College programme at Tox, Destino will offer attendees an end-to-end look at how to turbo-charge their production processes, while offering an exciting forward focus on trending future tech.

Attendees can expect an intimate look at German artist, Joplyn‘s live set-up as well as a special performance. An NFT music design workshop hosted by Inder Phull, CEO of metaverse leader PIXELYNX.

Meanwhile, Beatport Next artist AMÉMÉ will give delegates an inside look into curating different playlists for different locations using the Beatport DJ App and Surface Laptop Studio, while artists Cici and Alex Kennon‘s “in conversation” session will peel back the layers on the release process, from how to get noticed by labels to prolonging a track’s shelf life.

Delegates will also be able to drop in for 1:1 production feedback and career coaching while checking out Microsoft product demonstrations.

The day will conclude with the “Beatport Industry Hour,” where delegates will be provided with insights into the latest trends, partnerships and products within the electronic genre.

Finally, to cap off the night off, the four winners of Giolì & Assia‘s global remix competition for emerging artists, will perform a world-first four-person b2b livestream set with the Beatport’s DJ app’s Party Mode feature optimized for touchscreen on Microsoft Surface.
