Toolroom Academy returns to BMC19 – tickets on sale now

We’re super excited to announce that Toolroom Academy will be returning to BMC19 for the fourth consecutive year, bringing its unique and original educational experience to the producer community on Thursday 25th April.

There are two major changes this year. Firstly, we are delighted to be offering a Toolroom Academy Scholarship to the best demo on the day – a free place on one of our acclaimed and intensive mentoring programmes. Secondly, we are hosting the day’s event in a club setting, where our music belongs. We’re delighted to be based at the Arch in Brighton, just a stone’s throw from the main BMC site.

This year’s line-up features two brand new artists. Making his Academy ‘Live’ debut, Jon Kong (one half of acclaimed duo Leftwing:Kody) will be giving an extensive production masterclass. Having released on the likes of Toolroom, Relief, Hot creations, Knee Deep in Sound & many more, his mix of undisputed underground credibility and production knowledge will make essential viewing. Also making his debut for the Academy is Kinnerman; another tech house producer sending waves through the industry, his releases on Kaluki and El Row have seen huge Beatport success, and you can enjoy a detailed breakdown on his creative process.

Joining them will be Academy tutors and Toolroom artists Ben Remember and D.Ramirez – both revered in the production community for their knowledge and passion for production, and for their ability to communicate this knowledge clearly to budding artists looking to develop their skills.

Finally, label head honcho Mark Knight will be joining for A&R feedback – having signed and discovered many legendary artists in his 20-year career, you can expect valuable insight on your track from Mark. Recent label signing Wheats – now signed to Toolroom’s management roster – was discovered by Mark at BMC in 2016 from a demo submission.
