    NOTE: I want to apologize for the lack of updates. The team have been busy with the Stylus Spinfest & Stylus Awards.

    On Saturday May 30th, the Stylus Group held their 2nd Annual It’s Starts with the DJ 2.0 Conference at Home Nightclub.  The event was hosted by OTA Live’s own Ty Harper and Rez Digital. This is a great information session for artists, djs, promoters and etc who just wanted to get some information regarding this music industry. The panelists include Neil Forester (Management: Baby Yu, Owner: Mass Appeal & The Substance Group,  Abby Tobias (DJ, President: Soul Power Productions, Scratchlab & Six Degrees Event Venue, Keys N’ Krates, Eh team DJ’s), Adrian Strong (DMD Promo – Radio Promo), Baba Kahn (DJ, Promoter, Owner: Scratchlab & Soulshock Marketing Group), Wristpect (DJ, Sole Proprietor), Stephane Lecuyer (Full Capacity Concerts – CEO / National Concerts & Events Promoter), Tony Sal (CEO – CP Records). Each panelist gave useful information from the financial and accounting to way how to “brand” and market yourself. BRANDING is very important!!

    In the second session, the NETWORKING hour took place where guests had one-on-one interviews with the advisors where they have the opportunity ask anything from providing feedback on their music or just networking. The main key is to NETWORK. You can not go wrong with networking with anyone and everyone. As Click said, the person beside you may be the person that can help you.

    In the last hour, DJ Drama did a one on one interview with OTA Live (Ty Harper & Rez Digital) to discuss about the music industry in the ATL and gave few pointers of how we can improve our music scene in Toronto. Peep some of the interview below.

    I was a little disappointed to see how many people came out the information sessions If you are an artist, DJ, promoter etc, you should of been at this event. This is something for you!! This is information for you to soak in and to learn from. It’s also a reminder to stay focus and to continue to work on your craft. Everything is possible.

    On a greater note, I think we need to have more information session about how to improve and better yourself as an artist, promoter, dj, blogger, graphic designers etc etc. An event like this should happen atleast 3 to 4 times a year. We need to help grow our city and work together to get positive results. What are your thoughts? Let’s discuss. ( Stacey Star will be doing a segment called It starts with the artist later on this week – make sure to come back to gain some pointers and tips)
