Urban Development, the new way for underground artists to become familiar with the current status of the music industry, are holding, yet another very important Industry Takeover seminar on February 11th at Kobalt Music Group, East London. This great organisation who have nurtured critically acclaimed talent such as Skepta, Devlin and Wretch 32 will be discussing how subject matters such as gender, race and sexual orientation (to name a few) create an impact on one’s music career, whether that be positive or negative.
The seminar is cleverly titled ‘Equal Opps or Nah?’ and is the follow-up to their seminar earlier this month (The Independent Artist: Are Deal Still Needed?), where the panel analysed how major artists within the music industry are handling aspects of their career independently, with a conclusive question as to whether or not record labels are even needed in this respect anymore.
What we have found the most fascinating about these Urban Development events is that they have had much support from major record labels such as Universal Music, which on its own reveals how much of a long way “independent music,” has come.
Hosted by Capital Xtra’s Remel London at Kobalt Music Group, East London, this final seminar will be offering panel discussions and expert music industry panellists sharing their specialist knowledge and experiences, as well as a chance to ask questions in a dedicated Q&A segment, and very much desired networking opportunities.
There is no doubt that these seminars are useful for independent music acts, in terms of education for sustainability, so don’t waste your time and get yourself down there on February 11th to learn more about some very interesting topics Urban Development is not afraid to bring to the table.
