Boiler Room and Native Instruments—two leading innovators shaping music production, performance, and perception—are joining forces to explore creative techniques that have inspired what electronic music is today.
Teaming up with some of the most influential and innovative artists alongside cultural commentators, Boiler Room and Native Instruments explore the past, present, and future of artistic workflows, and how technology can inspire musical genres, scenes and cultures. Expect a series of insightful events, feature articles, performances, mixes, and documentaries along the way.
To kick off the series, Boiler Room and Native Instruments delve into the depths of remixing, re-arranging, and re-editing for the first topic: Credit to the Edit.
Together they bring together New York veteran Francois K, London’s prime tastemaker Benji B, and DJ and journalist Greg Wilson to look at the history and technological innovation behind editing and remixing. Topics range from the early days of the 12” extended disco edit, through to new tools like the open Stems* format, which is modernizing the age-old excitement of breathing new life into existing works.
The panel is live streamed to Boiler Room's online audience, along with a showcase performance by Berlin bass ambassador Sarah Farina.
