Urban Development announces Industry Takeover 2012

Urban Development’s Industry Takeover Seminar and Showcase is back and bigger than ever for 2012…

Jam-packed with urban music’s hottest artists and respected experts, Industry Takeover is all about empowering the next generation of music makers, moguls and emerging industry professionals with the knowledge they need. Past alumni includes Labrinth, Talay Riley and many more.

Offering edutainment and networking opportunities to industry-minded youth from across the UK, the initiative was launched by Urban Development in 2009 in East London. The annual event now attracts hundreds of young people each year, providing a unique platform whereby they can explore careers in all areas of the music industry and witness some of the UK’s hottest new names onstage.

Industry representatives from organisations including RWD, Universal MusicSB.TV (that’s us!), G-Shock and 1Xtra, will be sharing their expertise via the various workshops with home grown trailblazers including Elro, Joe Black, Jay Norton, Ayah Marar, Russo, SheZar, Incisive, UD Vocal Collective and EMI signed Rascals (who had their start with Urban Development several years back) taking to the stage to perform throughout the day.
