Look Back To 2016 IMS Asia Pacific

Last year, A2LiVE brought IMS Asia Pacific to Shanghai on September 29-30, and gathered a broad range of global artists, thought-leaders and industry figureheads to explore the growing influence of electronic music and the issues, challenges and opportunities that face the industry globally and in Asia.

The conference featured industry legends like Daniel Miller (Mute Records) and David Levy (WME), EDM superstars like Skrillex, Alesso and Pete Tong and even Asian mega-stars like Jolin Tsai.

Two of the world’s biggest electronic artists, Alesso and Skrillex, arrive at IMS Asia-Pacific to share how they are building their profiles in Asia. Skrillex brought his Meet Team OWSLA session, which includes some of the key players behind the success of Skrillex and his OWSLA imprint.

Alesso discussed how working with local Asian artists is an important way for him to connect with local audience, and announced his collaboration with Asia’s Pop Mandarin Queen and vocalist JolinTsai-“I Wanna Know”.

In tandem with IMS Asia-Pacific and OWSLA, Boiler room returned to the city of Shanghai with a special debut from IMS speaker Skrillex and was one of the most viewed and highest streamed Boiler Rooms ever.
