. DANCE MUSIC SEMINAR
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
If you are thinking of setting up your own club, making a record or launching a record label, Scotland’s hottest club night involves the Dance Music Seminar at the Arches, Glasgow.
The idea behind the event organised by the music industry’s regulatory bodies, is to create an opportunity to discuss topical issues such as how to ensure that recording artists receive the money due from the use of their music.
Staged by the Performing Rights Society, the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society and Phonographic Performances Limited, the seminar will present two panels, both chaired by Ewan Mcleod from Chartbite. The first will feature a discussion about the ‘industry’ side of the dance scene, with reps from the various regulatory bodies examining publishing, broadcasting, licensing and distribution rights.
The second will consider the ‘creative’ side of dance music, with Billy Kiltie (23rd Precinct/limbo Records), Paul Ludford (Rezerection), Dave Clarke (Soma Records), Billy Graham (MB), Yogi llaughton (DJ) and Jamie Raeburn (Clubscene) exploring some of the myths that surround issues such as clearing samples and obtaining royalties.
Dave Clarke, head of Soma Records explains: ‘This forum is essential for newer and less experienced labels as well as others in the industry to discuss all the questions that you're scared to ask in a friendly environment.’
Yogi Raughton: knowing the pitfalls
Well over 500 people attended last year’s seminar in London showing the level of interest and the need for the dance community to address such issues. This event, the first of three planned for this year, brings the debate to Scotland for the first time.
As Yogi Raughton says: ‘lt’s crucial for anyone who’s tninking about making music or setting up their own label to find out about the pitfalls involved in the process so they don’t end up getting ripped off. Also, people need to know who organisations like the PRS, MCPS and PPL are, because at the end of the day, they’re actually all on your side.’ (Jim Byers)
