A&R is an important part of electronic dance music. So many tracks are produced and released every week that there has to be some sort of filtering process. 

Somebody needs to look for the new talent, nurture it, mentor budding up and coming artists, give feedback on tunes, help a new young producer with their productions.

The A&R Sessions at BMC24 is where you can bring your demos and have some of the most discerning ears in the industry listen to them. Our team of experts from 27 labels will be on hand to give quality feedback on your productions. 

Hell, if it’s good enough, they may even sign your track to their label!
