“AEMCON gave my career a massive shot in the arm. Some of the outcomes of AEMCON include: receiving multiple gig offers, signing a 12" with an international label, and getting the ball rolling on funding applications. I also connected with several great avenues for publicity resulting in a high-profile remix competition and print media interview. It's impossible to overstate how helpful AEMCON was at this stage in my career.”
