Behringer and I-dance have teamed up to help DJs secure dance record deals. Jesse Hagenbeek, I-danceâ€™s Managing Director, explained to us how the partnership works, â€œItâ€™s simple and efficient. In each box of Behringer BCD3000, BCR/BCF2000, FCA202, UMX keyboards, as well as in the upcoming DDM4000 and UMA25S, you will find a voucher for a free 3-month membership in the I-dance community worth 25 euro. Register, upload your tracks, and feed your passion for good dance musicâ€�.
Kevin Mertens, Behringerâ€™s Product Manager DJ had this to say, â€œAs we began discussions with www.i-dance.com, we remembered the dreams we had when we started as DJs and producers. A record label interested in bringing our own music to the clubs of the world was and will always be the ultimate aspiration. It takes a lot of work and quite some luck to get to a deal, though. So we liked the idea of helping our users along that path. From 1 September 2007 Behringer offers to all of its customers purchasing DJ or production gear the chance to improve their dance music production skills. This is the result of the partnership with www.i-dance.com, the dance music web community which enables members to store their tracks safely, improve their songs and sets through a competent forum and, with an upgrade, even have their music automatically sent to labels, once it has reached the right quality point.â€�
Bert Niedermeyer, the Recording Product Manager at Behringer, added, â€œWith our innovative and affordable tools weâ€™ve enabled a great number of people to get involved into music production and with this initiative we thank them for choosing Behringer, by giving them a chance to make their dreams come true."
