The return of IMS BACK2LIVE
With 3 weeks to go, International Music Summit continue to elevate the innovators of the electronic music industry with ‘Back2Live’, the returning showcase dedicated to breakthrough artists of the live stage.
Taking place at the base camp of the conference at Hard Rock Hotel on 26th May, Stimming claims the top of the bill after the release of high-concept album ‘Alpe Lusia’. Recorded in isolation in an Alpine hut away from the world, then performed with the same level of immersion through a 4D sound system, this electronic explorer is known for his live intimacy. Experimentation in sound are the forte of the other selections too, with Sea Bed and Szjerdene also featuring – the former are in no way a house band, neither a strictly House act, and have crafted a string of hook-laden tunes with recent Annie Mac support.
Bolstering the night with traditional setups still offering the same electronic exploration, come two UK bands – Delamere and Our Future Glory – who bring dance fusions as raucous as a Rock concert, resplendent in anthemic highs and synthesized swells. These high-energy, electronic ensembles promise to deliver a powerful show, with a stage presence that is proof to the ‘Back2Live’ statement.
With free entry offered to all, other events on the schedule include the incredible Dalt Vila party at the island’s historic UNESCO World Heritage Site, IMS Business Report for 2016 and the prestigious Legends Dinner – with various networking sessions hosted by Ultra Records and Pioneer DJ. This year too the IMS Pioneer Award will make a return, the award previously awarded to long-term manager of industry greats Frankie Knuckles and David Morales Judy Weinstein.
IMS partner Danny Whittle explains:
"IMS are very excited for this years Back2Live line up, with a real mix of electronica and indie guitar sounds. We really think it's important to show the links and growth of more live elements within electronic music, and to also give a stage to upcoming new bands to showcase their talents to a very musically aware audience and music industry professionals”
