Beatginnings Returns With A Special Edition at MIA
December 20, 2016
Launched last month, Beatginnings is a new night of musical opportunity taking upcoming DJs & Producers from the bedroom to the DJ booth. A 100% submit-to-play event that leaves no room for favoritism, hostsSivz & Palehock select 3-4 acts to play at the monthly event. The initiative's kick-off event at Fortune Sound Club last month was a huge success.
“We had 33 artists submit to play which was incredible to see and to hear.” Says Sivz
“The Livestock room where we hosted was popping off early till late. We had a stacked room of friends coming out to support their friends as well as curious main room attendees and industry players come by to check out the selected artists.” Says Palehock
Committed to helping people take the plunge for their first gig, offering networking opportunities and giving a welcoming space for people to showcase their original music, last month’s lineup represented the various needs of the scene well.

Scheduled to return to its home in the Fortune Soundclub Livestock room in January, Beatginnings is keeping the momentum going with a special edition of the event this December. Hosting at the city’s underground gem, MIA, Beatginnings has put a special call out to those “with a love for the constant kick” AKA - who want to showcase the house, tech house, techno, minimal, and down tempo genres and everything in between.
From the 21 submissions received for this event, the artists selected to perform are:
“Our goal is to offer as many gig opportunities as we can, but we also want to play a role in educating artists and the public on nights and similar projects existing in the scene” Says Sivz
“We want to give upcomers a feel for what sounds are expected from them at different venues should they wish to pursue the venues further” she continues.
“It’s been interesting to see who we can discover within niches when we throw special editions,” says Palehock, “But it’s also very cool to see who’s determined to keep submitting and adapt their style to play to different crowds.”
The Beatginnings 4/4 Edition will be held at MIA in the back room on Thursday December 22nd at 10:00 P
