Wired Music Week Concludes its Inaugural Edition Leaving Barely an Empty Seat in the House

Back in April, I wrote about the Wired Music Week which is a one-stop hub for music enthusiasts of various levels to learn, network, develop and advance, not only as individuals but as a community as well. Wired Music Week has finally wrapped up its inaugural edition in Kuala Lumpur to rave reviews following three days of curated seminars, workshops, panel discussions, demo listening sessions, master classes, parties and after parties where aspiring artists rubbed shoulders with industry heads. Over 600 people attended Wired Music Week with people coming from Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Vietnam, Australia, Philippines, Indonesia and some from as far as the Netherlands – there was barely a seat to be found in the house.

Wired Music Week ran from Friday May 11th to Sunday May 13th at Tamarind Square in the silicon city of Cyberjaya, just 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city centre. The drive from the city proved worth it as Tamarind Square’s vast empty space turned out to be perfectly suited for the event as it felt exclusive and creative. Having SOCAR on board as the official car sharing partner meant travel to and from was almost seamless.

One of the biggest takeaways from Wired Music Week was that Revealed Recordings, the Dutch label established by Hardwell, was on site and did two days of demo drops and sessions at which they discovered a young Malaysian talent named Artin. His track caught the attention of the label and will go on to be released as a ‘Community Release’ later this year, meaning the tune will be played on Hardwell On Air, be released through all their portals and posted to the label’s social media channels.

“We are always on the lookout for new talent and wants to help talent grow from Asia to create more grounds and buzz to organically grow the electronic dance scene in Asia,” said Revealed of the discovery.

Other highlights from Wired Music Week included the Sav from Fight Clvb offering aspiring artists some words and wisdom based on his own experiences, RayRay from Taiwan showing off her technical prowess for all to take in, local heroes Goldfish & Blink who took the time to inspire Malaysia’s younger generation by offering advice on build up an artist profile, artist coach JoeySuki deliver a keynote on making decisions and finding happiness in the music industry (see the presentation here) and all the labels like Armada Music, Future House Music and AEI Group that made the trip over from abroad to participate in nurturing the Asian scene. Wired Music Week came to fruition earlier this year as a way to bolster a growing music scene by using the universal language of music to connect, communicate, educate and inform the artists, promoters, agents and fans that are growing it.

Organizers have chosen the bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur to play host to the inaugural edition and hope to shine the spotlight onto the region by creating a onestop hub for music enthusiasts of various levels to learn, network, develop and advance, not only as individuals but as a community as well.
