Once again, we’re throwing a huge Armada University happening in our headquarters in Amsterdam during the world’s biggest dance music conference.

Expect to be thrown head first into topics such as sound design/synthesis, tapping into other genres and how to create an absolute banger of a record, following by personal feedback on your demo from the artists or the Armada Music A&Rs.

For an audial deep-dive into the history of dance music, our showcase at the Our House museum (October 22, from 4 p.m. till 8 p.m.) is a must-attend. Located at the very same spot where Amsterdam’s legendary club iT thrived until the early 2000s, the museum offers an interactive journey through the evolution of dance music, so it’s only fitting that one of house music’s pioneers, Joe Smooth, heads up this showcase alongside Lyke, Polar Inc. and Ninetails.
