SOMA Skool has announced the first tranche of speakers for its 2019 edition in April at Glasgow’s SWG3.

Producers, DJs, artists and other figures in the music industry will talk about record labels, promoting, clubs, queer artists in electronic music, radio shows, clubs and take part in a panel curated by Red Bull Music.

Soma Skool began in 2013 as a partnership between long-running techno label Soma Records and Glasgow-based production school Shoogle Studios, and both are taking part in the event.

Shoogle Studios are behind the day’s Ableton masterclasses while Stuart McMillan, one half of legendary dance duo Slam and co-founder of Soma Records, will feature in a panel discussing the role of radio and podcasts.
