Brighton Music Conference (BMC), the UK’s leading electronic music conference will take place at the Brighton Dome on Thursday 14th April and Friday 15th April 2016. Following the huge success of BMC 2015, which saw the number of professional delegates increase by over 30% and its Academy programme enjoy capacity audiences.
BMC has quickly established itself as a vital meeting point for the electronic music industry, bringing together leading organisations and figures for two days of master classes, panels, and talks. In line with the event’s reputation as a forum for new ideas and challenging conventional industry thinking, Association For Electronic Music (AFEM) CEO Mark Lawrence has revealed the topics for his two talks: “Get Played Get Paid; Building the New Music Industry” and “Stealing Our Own Success; Are DJ’s accidentally killing sales?”. Full details of the conference programme can be found here including where you can see our Editor on stage as a panelist.

Chosen by and representing Brighton Music Conference as our guest on Decoded Radio is an upcoming artist from Brighton named Joshua. With his introduction into music innately delivered through his brother’s pirate radio station, Joshua experienced music in its entirety at a young and impressionable age. Through relentless dedication to music over the following 15 years Joshua developed an extraordinary technical ability behind the decks. A truly unique ‘hands on’ DJ with an unmistakable talent. His inspiring mixing across the turntables leaves audiences astonished and craving more.
A producer and radio show host too, Joshua encompasses the foundations of what it takes to really appreciate music. On his weekly radio show for London’s Reprezent 107.3fm, Joshua promotes both emerging and established artists from the house and bass scene engaging his audience with anticipation and a thirst for more.
Joshua’s passion and energetic sound caught the eye of Hannah Wants in early 2015. Through selection of his mix Joshua was chosen to support Hannah on her 2015 UK tour standing out as a worthy talent amongst the strongest of peers.
Joshua has an innate drive and passion to share, play and produce music, to be a stand out artist at the decks and to prove to the world that to be a true DJ is not just to press play.
