Friday, November 11th marked the first industry event of its kind at the SKIO HQ in Vancouver, “The Exclusive Autograf Meet and Greet”. At SKIO, we are big believers in collaboration, as seen by our platform, so it was only fitting that the night would be co-hosted by our event partners, RENDRD Magazine. RENDRD brought their energy, passion and drive confirming our excitement to collaborate again in the future.
SKIO Music announced today it is an official hosting partner in the first annual Chapel Sound Festival taking place in Vancouver, May 20-22nd, 2016.
We’re proud to announce that SKIO has partnered with Audiophile Records to offer producers and DJs direct access to premium catalogues. Creators in the SKIO community can now connect directly with Audiophile label managers to legally remix tracks from all three sub-label catalogues: Audiophile Live (Electro House /Dance), Audiophile Deep (Deep / Tech House) and Audiophile XXL (Bass / Heavy House).
So, you’re going to South by Southwest 2016! Take it from us, SXSW is no joke, it’s ten days of magical musical mayhem, titillating interactive exposes, and indulgent film-making for the soul. And yes, there are mad tacos in Austin, wicked-mad tacos.
Talented, beautiful and crazy.No, I’m not talking about Brazilian women, I’m talking about the Brazilian music industry. We’re still buzzing from our trip down to the iconic coastal city for this year’s Rio Music Conference, where we connected with world-class talent and members of the the vibrant dance music community in Brazil.
Music Changes Lives. Pass it On.
Raw creativity, collaboration, mutual respect and meaningful exchanges. These are core to SKIO’s DNA and the fundamental drivers for taking part first-hand in this year’s Burning Man Festival. Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.
This year Pemberton Music Festival impressed us with an eclectic lineup of rising stars, music legends and everything in-between. For some it was a shot at a second chance. Kendrick Lamar, who had a disappointing show last year, redeemed himself with a powerful performance, igniting the crowd with both his classic tracks as well as his most recent album. For others it was a reminder that their iconic status is well deserved. Missy Elliott sarcastically reminded some of the younger generation that she’s been killing it for a couple decades before diving into a surprisingly deep set of hits that every age cohort seemed to know well. Speaking of a good sing-along, Weezer didn’t disappoint with their nostalgic throwbacks that are easy to get into even if you’re not a diehard fan. And Kid Cudi drew a surprisingly large crowd as even the younger attendees made a rare pilgrimage from the Base Camp tent to the Mount Currie stage to enjoy Cudi’s energetic performance.
If you haven’t heard of Splash House Music Festival already, you should probably just go experience it for yourself before reading any further. If you’re the type that requires more than a one-sentence suggestion to make these kind of decisions, luckily there’s a heap more sentences below to sway you.
