Electronic musicians scottishing the music scene in South Africa are in a race against time to keep their music afloat.
The South African Electronic Music Association, or SAEMA, is planning to hold a summit on February 28 in Johannesburg.
It is set to be attended by more than 20 South African music professionals, including artists, producers and producers from other African countries.
SAEMA president Paul De Jong has also been organizing the meeting in Johannesberg.
The SAEMA conference is the first of its kind to be held in South African cities.
“I don’t want to get into any sort of political discussions, but we do want to have some kind of dialogue,” De Jong said.
“We have a lot of good people in South Asia who are interested in our industry.
And that’s why we’re in this race.”
Electronic music, also known as electronic dance music, is a subgenre of electronic music that mixes electronic instruments, samples and drum machines.
Many of the electronic musicians from South Africa have worked in other genres and have a good rapport with each other.
But De Jong is optimistic about the success of electronic dance, citing the country’s history of music production, as well as its reputation as an electronic music hub.
SAEA is organizing a summit in Johannesborden, South Africa, on February 27.
“The electronic music scene has always been growing and expanding.
It’s growing every year, even before the electronic music industry started growing in the early 2000s,” he said.”
Nowadays, we have so many different genres, so many styles and styles of music, and so many new artists.
The artists who come to South Africa today are coming from all over the world.
There are no borders to the music industry in South Korea, India or anywhere else.
It just takes a few years.”
South African producers have a vested interest in SAEMA’s success, he said, noting that they have been receiving calls from producers who are eager to be part of SAEMA.
The South African government is encouraging the SAEMA to organize a summit at the beginning of February in Johannesborg, Johannesburg, and also to invite artists from the country to attend.
“It’s a matter of time before we have a summit,” De Jong said.
In order to have the summit in South Korean cities, De Jong hopes the SAEA will organize a special event at the start of the month.
“A lot of the producers have already been planning for this,” he added.
The event is to be called SAEMA Seoul, and will be hosted by an entertainment group.
The goal of the event is for SAEMA representatives to meet with a number of different electronic music producers and record labels.
“So far, SAEMA has never had any kind of summit.
We’re just going to have an event for the producers,” Dejong said.
The music industry is already growing in South America.
“South America is the second biggest producer of electronic musical music in the world, after the United States,” De jong said, adding that the number of South American artists producing electronic music has tripled since 2008.
SAICA is hoping that the summit will help boost the electronic industry in SA. “
But we’re still at a disadvantage compared to the rest of the world,” DeJong said with a chuckle.

“SAEMA is very much aware that electronic music is a great thing for the economy.
We have a very high rate of innovation in South East Asia,” Dejong said about the electronic musical scene.
“There’s a lot to do in South Eastern Asia, so it’s important that we can continue to develop our industry.”
He added that the SAEPA would like to collaborate with foreign music producers in the future, especially in South-East Asia.
“In the future we would like our association to collaborate more with foreign producers, especially from the Asian continent,” he concluded.
“Also, we would love to collaborate internationally.
There’s so much potential in the music sector.”–CNN Music’s Amy Rafferty contributed to this report.
