Grosvenor House Ballroom – Park Lane, London (largest ballroom in Europe 2000 people) This gig stood out for DJ Jason Dupuy as being slightly different. Although having played at Grosvenor House on many occasions to a whole host of famous people at various events; on this particular occasion, Jason was standing in for Capital FM Radio DJ and Pop Idol Judge – Foxy. Jason enjoyed being involved as part of the overall production team consisting of over 40 crew behind the scenes producing, managing, and operating lighting, effects, PA’s, Mic levels, TV Cameras and so on; not to mention 4 days of set installation and breakdown. There was even a TV commentator with a very familiar voice sitting in the booth next to Jason making all the commentary. The gig really made Jason appreciate all the work, effort and logistics that go in to putting on a TV show of that size. Trying to wear 2 pairs of headphones was quite funny as well, one pair of DJ headphones and a pair of production headphones for instructions from the producer.

Miami Winter Music Conference 2004. Miami was a very educational experience for Jason. Miami WMC is a kind of pre-season, American, Ibiza where artists and producers are all pushing their new tracks to record labels for the forthcoming summer. All the big promoters have a night on and the week culminates with the Ultra Dance Festival. It was a tough, but thoroughly enjoyable week burning the candle at both ends. DJ Event Parties in the Evening such as Defected, Hed Kandi, Ultra Festival, plus Jason’s own set at Amica on Miami South Beach and then up each morning to attend the actual Conference. There was so much to learn from the pioneers of the music industry. Lectures found useful were, Production, Songwriting & Publishing, Media Relations, Get Signed, Digital Radio, Event Promotion, Legal & Finance (not the most exciting perhaps), Copyright & Piracy (that was also a struggle), New Media Marketing & Revenue Streams and Independent Label. Jason came back from Miami refreshed, rejuvinated and with floods of ideas to implement in to his DJ sets and career for the future. That’s what Jason loves about the music industry – there are so many facets there is always somewhere to improve, so he is constantly refining ideas to keep ahead. The Miami Music Conference demonstrated the diversity of expertise involved across the Industry and now Jason could begin to understand the depth of knowledge required to succeed in each area and have the contacts to help.
