Hookups are an opportunity to interact and network with fellow artists and industry from across your city, mingle with your peers and enjoy some food on us!
PLUS we're giving you the chance to win a mentoring session with Gold Coast producer Paces. All you need to do is RSVP and attend your local Hookups networking event at the Gold Coast, Sunny Coast, Ipswich or Brisbane.
CHILL WITH PACES
Paces has gone from strength to strength since producing Tkay Maidza's track Switch Lanes, which landed in the 2014 triple j's hottest 100. Hailing from the Gold Coast, this dad and dog lover cloaks everything he does in happiness and explosive colour. Blurring the line between club and pop music, Paces reflects his lifestyle - colourful and fun.
'I’m really psyched to be involved. It’s so important to share knowledge with each other, that’s how I started out! Hopefully I have some useful tips that will give someone a nudge early in their career. I find it super inspiring to work with different people so I know I’ll be walking away from this feeling motivated too''Paces
