Wall Street White Paper Values EDM Industry At $20.0 Billion

Electronic Dance Music (EDM): The Digital Pangaea, the first annual Massive White Paper written by Wall Street veteran John Langdon and his company Massive Advisors, LLC shows the current reach, influence and true value of the global EDM Industry. It’s an econometric market study of the global electronic dance music market and culture. Despite its growing popularity, studies on the macroeconomic impact of EDM are rare. Much less an all encompassing report that combines public and proprietary data to show the true figures of the industry.

The findings of the Massive White Paper show the EDM industry still is often completely ignored or misunderstood by governments and businesses worldwide — from traditional music distributors, to apparel brands, to acoustics manufacturers.

The EDM market is a $15.0 to $20.0 billion global industry, with the major players in the global festival market achieving $4.5 billion in sales for 2012. Digital music revenues grew an impressive 9.8% in 2012. This compares to a 17% increase in festival attendees at five top

global festivals and an increase of 33% in the total number of festivals thrown yearly worldwide. The attendance at 20 top global festivals evaluated by Massive Advisors, LLC increased from 1.9 million in 2009 to an estimated 3.4+ million for 2013.

Wall Street White Paper Values EDM Industry At $20.0 BillionJohn Langdon and representatives of Massive Advisors will serve as panelists at the Amsterdam Dance Event Radio Forum speaking alongside the world’s number one DJ Armin Van Buuren (Amsterdam,October 16 – 20). They will discuss the state of the dance music industry, DJing, producing, and technology and the future of dance music.

John Langdon has over 23 years of middle-market private equity experience on Wall Street, and most recently was Managing Director of the $2.8 billion private equity fund Platinum Equity, as co-head of PLMM, Platinum Equity’s lower middle market investment group.

Hammarica.com Launches Its New DJ Agency 657 Deejays

Hammarica

Hammarica.com, known for its widely popular Dance Music Blog and PR Agency proudly takes the next step in its existence as it launches its Seattle based DJ agency www.657deejays.com. The first artists to join 657 DEEJAYS include Antonio Giacca, JOOP, Bassrock, Artento Divini, Angry Muffin, Area 303, Divini & Warning, Hibernate and The DJ Sessions. The main focus for the agency will be the North American market. Yet, select artists will be available for bookings world wide.

Wilf Libgott, CEO of Hammarica.com says: “657 Deejays actively selects its top notch talent, whether that means the superstars, the legends or the young blood. All are equally important to keep the dance scene thriving. As I’m originally from Holland, I saw the rise of big festivals first hand. In the last few years these massive productions have gone world wide such as the Sensation events in over 20 countries. The US EDM scene is still fairly young, but quickly expanding as big corporations acquire numerous long known dance music brands and promoters. We definitely want more DJ’s from Europe play shows in North America and connect the people here with their top-level sound. 657 Deejays strives to bring a varied roster across the whole EDM spectrum. There are so many sub genres of EDM and each style has their own dedicated fan base. At the same time, all these different sounds are rapidly merging with each other as well. It becomes less important to label the music and more important to give the audience an experience beyond a certain style. Our mission is to provide promoters with the best and most cutting edge talent available and making the booking experience a breeze for every party involved.”

A quick look through the roster unveils some well known names lined up together with fresh talent.

ANTONIO GIACCA is one of the hottest names in the dance scene of today. He releases Big Room tracks at an astonishing pace, cracking the Beatport charts and receiving rave reviews all around the world. All the magic happens at Antonio’s High Gravity Recording Studios right on the Hollywood strip which he owns and operates with EDX. His productions can be found on labels such as ToolroomPinkstarSpinnin’ RecordsSirup Music and his own label Optimizer Records.

Dutchman JOOP has been on the forefront of the global dance scene for over a decade. Initially discovered by ID&T, the world’s largest promoter, he headlined events ranging from MysterylandSensation and Trance Energy. He was responsible for 2007’s Trance Energy anthem THE FUTUREwhich gained up to 1.000.000 combined YouTube views. In a few months from now JOOP will release the highly anticipated 2013 remake of The Future.

BASSROCK is not only part of the DJ Agency, but is also signed to Hammarica Management. This 21 year old Electro House prodigy is a promise for the future with a stage presence like none other. In the midst of mashing up mind blowing Electro and Dirty Dutch behind the decks, he shows off his wildest moves to the crowd, hyping up the fans as he elevates the music to the next level. Showmanship might be his middle name, but as a producer, he brings even more beef to the table.

Other artists include ANGRY MUFFIN, a Canadian artist who pushes the boundaries of today’s electronic music and performance. He received praise from the international press for his self-titled debut album resulting in interviews and features ranging from Tilllate Magazine to Pumped Audio, Party Time Magazine, and EDM Nightlife. Then there is Big Room duo DIVINI & WARNING who are mainstays on top labels like Armada Music, Spinnin Records and High Contrast Recordings. As a solo artist ARTENTO DIVINI has releases out on In Charge, Ava Recordings, Coldharbour, Doorn Records and Reset while rocking events such as Trance Energy, DefQon1, Dance Valley and In Qontrol. AREA 303 is a techno and acid house live performance duo from Seattle. They stay true to the oldschool sound utilizing an array of analog synths, drum machines, stomp boxes and the latest sampling groove machines to bring a raw and intriguing sound. Since they have control over each single note played, they have the ability to directly interact with their crowd and tweak to perfection.

A special part of the roster is definitely THE DJ SESSIONS. The DJ Sessions has been an EDM Live streaming video show for years featuring both new talent and A-list celebrity DJ’s. The DJ Sessions is available for bookings at clubs or larger scale dance events to document a night on video and stream it live as it happens. This way, promoters can strengthen their fan base, give new potential patrons a look inside their events and make everyone a part of the experience.


Before launching the DJ Agency, Hammarica.com started in June of 2012 with its dance music PR Agency and EDM magazine. The PR Agency has proven very successful representing artists as varied from Marco Bailey, to Darin Epsilon, Andrew Bennett and Kalm Kaoz.

The magazine is stockpiled with the latest dance music news, party reports, new releases, columns, tutorials, the famed Dubstep Name Generator which quickly became a very popular tool and www.DJ-Meme.com where people can caption pictures of their favorite DJ’s.. On top of that it features daily interviews with the most interesting names all across the EDM spectrum. Some of these featured artists include: Dirtyloud, Dave Clarke, Bad Boy Bill, Armin Van BuurenJuan Atkins, Ferry Corsten, Manuel De La Mare, Dirtyphonics, Renaat Vandepapeliere, Excision, Todd Terry, Cazzette and many more. Through the interviews, we get to know the persons behind the artists. It gives them the much needed face to otherwise often faceless music. What drives their passion? What kind of experiences do they have?

657 Deejays will add more names to its roster in the coming months.

About ANDR3X:

ANDR3X | ANDREW ANDREX | 3X are the multiple personas behind one artist with many passions. Based out of Orange County, California, ANDR3X has been involved in Electronic Music since the mid-80’s. From the moment he picked up his first Depeche Mode album, he realized this music was where he belonged.

In his early college years, he studied multimedia and worked as a computer technician. Later moving on to work for Yamaha Corporation and legendary synthesizer manufacturer EMU. He programmed several of their synthesizers and drum machines including the Yamaha AN200, DX200, and EMU XL-7, MP-7 along with the original Yamaha Motif keyboard. With all of his technical background, he eventually built his own studio and produced some of his first white label remixes under the name “The Nephewz.”

As if his passion for the studio was not enough, he also worked tirelessly promoting the music and culture during the 90’s Rave Scene. His “Subliminal” warehouse parties united the scene in Southern California with DJs such as Christopher Lawrence, Sandra Collins, and Mr. Kool-Aid to name a few.

Fast forward to the present and he is still as passionate about the music as ever. Ultimately progressing into a DJ/Producer/Promoter, ANDR3X is today committed to reaching out to all music lovers, exposing Electronic Music and connecting people on the dance floor.

Formerly a managing partner with renowned Electronic event production company Giant at the historic Yost Theater, ANDR3X’s involvement included everything from promoting, talent buying, to DJing, allowing him to gain a wide range of knowledge and experience from working with the best in the industry.

With a consistent weekly 9 year run in the business, ANDR3X shows no signs of slowing down. He currently has two weekly events: Element and Elektronik, each extremely unique yet with one commonality, genuine Electronic Music.

ELEMENT on Thursdays at Sutra in Costa Mesa. With the current explosion of EDM in the United States, Sutra has quickly proven to be a leader on the West Coast, providing not only premiere talent but premium club service Orange County has never before experienced. The hugely popular Sutra5 +1 event uniquely showcases six consecutive days of all-star EDM talent that is second-to-none; artists such as Calvin Harris, Laidback Luke, Paul Van Dyk, and Armin Van Buuren have performed to an intimate, sold-out crowd. (For more info www.sutraoc.com)

ELEKTRONIK on Saturdays at Avec Nightclub in Huntington Beach. Created by Andr3x himself, Elektronik is a weekly event dedicated to exposing all genres of Electronic Music as well as promoting new talent. As head of marketing and artist bookings, he has effectively cultivated an Electronic Music scene in Southern California while also helping to develop and brand many overlooked artists. Elektronik has successfully produced more than 160 shows and booked over 300 DJs in the last four years, from recognized headliners to up-and-comers. (For more info www.facebook.com/Elektronik-musik | www.facebook.com/3Xevents)

On the DJ and production end, ANDR3X is a resident for his own Elektronik Saturday weekly along with Element (www.sutraoc.com) performing regularly alongside international headliners. ANDR3X has shared the stage with ARMIN VAN BUURREN, FERRY CORSTEN, ABOVE AND BEYOND, ATB, GARETH EMERY, and COSMIC GATE to name a few.

In March of 2012, ANDR3X was invited by the massively celebrated Winter Music Conference (www.wintermusicconference.com) in Miami, Florida to speak on a panel seminar focused on event organizing and promotions as well as artist development and branding.

Currently he is working on a new mix compilation along with an artist album expected to arrive at the end of this year.

His current remix of French Indie Rock band Phoenix – 1901 received phenomenal support throughout the internet, charting #3 on Hype Machine (www.hypem.com).

His mix compilation “Believe In Music (Volume 1)” tells the story of the music and movement that brought him to this point. It’s been highly acclaimed by many as one of the best mix compilations that has emerged from the scene in several years.
