BASS: San Francisco's second Flux Summit happens January 21
Edited Press Release

Flux Summit, a free quarterly electronic music industry event featuring discussions on current industry topics, a cocktail party, and a music review session, takes place this Thursday, Jan. 21 in San Francisco. In addition to the discussion and mixer, an integral part of the summit is Test Press, a music review session for DJs, producers and artists in front of top industry experts.

The topic for the second Flux Summit, which takes place at Pyramind Studios at 832 Folsom Street in San Francisco, is "What's Shaking Down SF Music Venues?"

Venues, artists and musicians who spend their lives dedicated to music -- and the fans who enjoy it -- are being threatened by the actions of the California Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC). Thursday's discussion will bring together top representatives in San Francisco’s music nightlife including club owners and political figures to explore and debate these issues.

Attendees will learn about the challenges facing the electronic music community and find out how they can get involved. The discussion will be moderated by Michael Winger, Recording Academy SF Chapter Secretary. Other speakers include Debra Walker (candidate for SF District 6 Supervisor and advisor of the SF Music and Sustainability policy), Terrance Alan (SF Entertainment Commission Founding President), Mark Rennie (Entertainment Law Specialist) and Tim Benetti (co-owner of nightclub, Bottom of the Hill).

The debut event held this past October focused the discussion on "21st Century PR & Marketing," and was moderated by Tomas Palermo with speakers from Om Records (DJ/producer, J. Boogie), IODA, Terrorbird Media and IDC. View a great roundup video on the Flux Summit website.

In addition to the discussion and mixer, an integral part of the summit is Test Press, the music review session that enables DJs, producers and artists to gain instant feedback on their music from top industry experts. Past industry experts include representatives from Microsoft Zune, Ingrooves, Om Records, XLR8R, Amoeba Records, and Pandora. Test Press is currently accepting track submissions for consideration directly through the Flux Summit website.

With the music industry rapidly changing, Flux was created to encourage interaction and open up discussion on emerging trends in the electronic music community. Flux Summit is a free event but, RSVP is required and capacity is limited. For more information and to RSVP visit the Flux Summit website.
