Stanton Gets a Sneak Peak at the Cutting-edge of Latin Music at LAMC 2012

Stanton is representing strong for Latin American and Latin music lovers alike at the 2012 LAMC (Latin Alternative Music Conference). Held yearly, LMAC is the only major conference geared towards the marketing of Spanish-language alternative music — the voice of today's Latinos. This five-day event provides networking opportunities with the genre's leading artists, label executives, journalists, managers, retailers and programmers. It is the most extensive gathering of Latinos in entertainment to be offered by a music conference to date and Stanton is glad to be there to see what’s coming.

Stanton has always been a fan of the new Latin sounds and rhythms coming out from U.S. and Latin America. This year marks the first time we are collaborating with the Epiphone booth. This makes the Stanton booth now a place where you can hear the modern sounds of electronic music fused together with our rockin’ sidekick – Epiphone!

Gibson Pro Audio’s KRK, Stanton and Cerwin-Vega! will have an interesting interactive demonstration area at this year’s LAMC. The area features a learning center with four SCS.4DJs loaded with the latest Latin alternative music for fans and industry professionals to enjoy, make their own mixes or take a creative break while at the conference.

Our DJ Booth will feature the best DJ’s in Latin music. These include 3BallMTY, Toy Selectah, and Latin Bitman. The ladies from Maracuyeah will be stopping by and playing with the Gibson Pro Audio gear. We will also have DJ sets by Mister Moombah (Colombia), Juanderful (Philly), Carlito Sway (Miami/LA), and Pajaritos (Boston). Even the biggest Latin urban artists have stopped by the booth including Psycho Realm, DJ FM and Tego Calderon to name a few and they all got to check out the SCS.4DJ in action. Special performances by rising Colombian artists Profetas did a showcase at the booth as well.

Although the event has the name “Latin” in it, this isn’t purely a Latin event. The conference represents some of the biggest crossover sounds to hit Pop music worldwide. Almost half of the 1,500 industry professionals attending the conference and the more than 30,000 introduced to this music via numerous concerts around the city in NYC this weekend are U.S. Latinos that influence the U.S. with a great musical heritage.
