Taking place at The Tempest Inn on Brighton"s beachfront, just a short walk from the main BMC Hub at the British Airways i360 complex, The Label Lounge provided a relaxed, friendly environment, where producers had the opportunity to have one to one meetings with leading A&Rs in the dance music Industry.
With DJ/Producer Wax Worx on hand to guide and advise participants at the event, this years edition exceeded expectations with many labels returning to participate such as Armada & Axtone and six tracks being signed.
Oli Love, who was one of the attendees got a record three tracks signed on the day with Marylebone, Sleazy Deep and Frooty Recordings and Krafted signed two tracks by Dan Jeffries.
"Absolutely loved the Brighton Music Conference this year. I'd had a ticket since before Covid so it was great to finally hang out with like-minded people, both established and up and coming in the industry.
"The Label Lounge exceeded all expectations as I got a couple of my tracks signed to Krafted Records!
"All of the industry talks were fascinating, and the pod parties were something else."
Participants who attended the Label Lounge this year presented tracks across a broad spectrum of genres and it will be interesting to see how these artists progress in the future.
First time participant Gavin Fenton, Wax Roar said:
"First time I've ever had any of my music played to record labels. And when three different labels tell you the same thing about your productions that need working on, you'd be a fool not to listen,
"I was even given links to a free course that could help me. I'll definitely be back next year, and I'll be a better producer too!"
The Brighton Music Conference and The Label Lounge will return next year with dates being announced soon. If you are a label that would like to participate in The Label Lounge next year
