International Music Summit took over the W Hollywood Hotel for their 5th annual IMS ENGAGE event. Featuring conversations between some of the biggest names in music - Lyor Cohen and Jake Udell, Chuck D and Seth Troxler, Kaskade and Stuart Price, Jason Strauss and David Grutman, and Quincy Jones and Pete Tong - the event was an unarguable success, providing never-before-heard insight and stories from titans of industry.
Today, the full length video of the legendary Quincy Jones in conversation with Pete Tong was released via IMS. The 60 minute conversation features Jones discussing everything from working with Michael Jackson and Ray Charles, to his opinion on present day DJs and producers, and dance music’s ability to survive musically.
“the summit essentially serves as a who’s who of EDM and a place to plot its future.” - Billboard
“I couldn’t help but ask Jones what he felt Jackson would think about the rise of EDM. ‘Are you kidding’ he said. ‘He’d love it.’” - Forbes
