For the second year in a row, the Electronic Music Conference is slated to happen in Sydney, Australia, this December 2-4. But before the keynotes, panels, and production clinics get underway, the inthemix-sponsored affair is hosting a slew of events in the lead-up, many of which start next week in different cities around the country.

Beatport is happy to be a part of the series, with our Executive Creative Director Clark Warner holding a conversation with French house producer/DJ Yuksek on the ins and outs of dance music in both Sydney and Melbourne on July 16 and 17, respectively. Yuksek will hold production workshops following each chat. On July 18, Warner interviews producer/DJ TyDi in Brisbane, who’ll field questions and also showcase his production prowess.

The events are open only to invitees, but right now you can register to win access to the via inthemix here, here, and here. Coincidentally, TyDi has just released a new single, “Nothing Really Matters feat. Melanie Fontana,” and it’s available in his special Beatport Mix below.
