Anti Social Producers Club, described as an “underground collective of music producers,” will host its second annual Anti Social Camp in New York City from Monday through Friday (June 13 to 17) in an effort to help rejuvenate the city’s music scene.
“We created Anti Social Producers Club to build community and remind the music industry that there is still a wealth of talent here in New York,” Anti Social Producers Club founder Danny Ross said in a statement. “Anti Social Camp is not only the biggest songwriting camp in recent memory — with 150 signed artists creating 100 songs in 3 days — but it’s a vehicle to reinvigorate the NYC music scene. Thank you to our partners for building this historic event with us. For all those who believe that the music industry has completely shifted to L.A. over the last decade, I have one message — New York is back.”
The camp will see 150 signed artists, producers and writers creating 100 new tracks in three days “with the goal of putting the NYC music scene back on the map,” according to a press release, through sessions taking place both in-person and over Zoom. Notable artists and guests taking part in the camp and its various events include GAYLE, Walk The Moon, Rostam, JP Saxe, Rob Thomas, Linda Perry, NoMBe, Wolftyla, Ant Saunders, Sammy Adams, VÉRITÉ, Tim Atlas, KiNG MALA, Sadie Jean, Madison McFerrin, Annika Wells and Andrea Russett.
Alongside its official distribution partner Amuse, over the course of the week the camp will also host events including a gala at Great Jones Distilling Co. presented by the Recording Academy’s New York Chapter; an industry showcase supported by Spotify Noteable; a “Women Running Music” panel with partners including She Is the Music and Beats by Girlz; an industry day that includes sessions on the Mechanical Licensing Collective (MLC), Chartmetric and Sound Royalties; a Dolby Atmos experiential presentation; and more.
Other companies and organizations partnering for the week-long event include the New York Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), BMI, Twitch, oeksound, Avid Technologies, Hipgnosis Songs, ABKCO, Spitfire Audio, Milk and Honey, SSL, Music Publishers of Canada, Songtrust, D’Angelico Guitars and Bronx Brewery.
