Future Mix: firestarters at ADE Next

During ADE Next, two firestarters panel discussions will explore the future of mixing. firestarters is giving away 2 pairs of tickets to Future Next on Saturday October 19.

Without technology the closest thing to a dj would be the guy beating a big drum to get warriors into some kind of altered battle trance. Today’s shaman is a guy standing behind a twinkling dashboard, mixing futuristic tunes for us hedonistic Y2K creatures.

Tech has driven DJ culture from day one. Future Mix looks at how technology will keep on pushing dj’s to reinvent themselves and how their creative freedom is enhanced with every new piece of gear and software that gets released. What will the dj of the future look like? What kind of developments can we expect in the years to come? And are there any downsides? Does technology for instance alienate us from the music?

Guests: Chris Liebing, Joris Voorn, Ableton, Pulselocker and more.
