BEATPORT Announces 2018 Season of Beats In School Mentorship Program

BEATPORT, a division of LiveStyle Inc., announced the next season of the Beats In School mentorship program, which will deliver all-new opportunities for its alumni in 2019.

Launched by Beatport in 2017, Beats In School is a unique year-long initiative that not only uncovers new and unsigned talent, but also provides the tools and mentoring for a lasting career in electronic music.

In this expanded season, four winners will receive direct A&R from top label ambassadors representing Dirtybird, Hospital, mau5trap and Second State, one-on-one studio sessions and tutorials, career guidance from industry experts, support from Beatport’s wide network of partners and a coveted prize package featuring industry standard gear. Each facet of Beats In School comes together in an unparalleled electronic music education.

The program will be accepting entries from Nov. 12 until Dec. 7 at beatsinschool.beatport.com. The mentorship program will begin in January 2019 for this season’s chosen talent.

Beatport Chief Product Officer, Terry Weerasinghe commented, “Independent record labels are the heartbeat of electronic music, breaking fresh talent every year. The labels involved in this year's Beats In School have helped launch the careers of artists like Fisher, Rezz, Amelie Lens and Unglued. Beats In School is the program that gives artists the chance to be next year’s big thing - I can’t wait to see who the labels choose!”
