The electronic dance industry is always on the lookout for the next hot DJ-producer to stir things up on the stages, which is why powerhouse promoters Insomniac created the Discovery Project. Emerging and aspiring talent now will have the chance to win a spot in the lineup during the inaugural Electric Daisy Carnival in Chicago (May 24-26).
“As the dance music scene continues to grow so does the number of emerging talent waiting for their chance to be heard,” said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac. “The Discovery Project is one of my favorite initiatives, finding untapped producers and offering a performance on a stage unlike any other, at EDC Chicago.”
Interested parties should submit a 30-minute mix that best represents their personal style along with a remix of Bad Boy Bill’s ‘Unsaid’ feat. Tamra Keenan. Personal mix submissions can be uploaded to MixCloud with the tag ‘Discovery Project: EDC Chicago’ somewhere in the title. The Bad Boy Bill remix can be submitted to the Insomniac Events Soundcloud drop box with the same title requirement.
Winning DJs will have the opportunity to perform onstage at EDC Chicago on May 25. A second set of winners will be awarded an opportunity to play Glow Run Chicago on June 1.
“We search for those artists willing to experiment and introduce new sounds that will inspire our fans to dance like no one is watching."
