The second day of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) revolved around the future of electronic dance music (EDM), with heavyweights such as Mark Doyle, DJ Paulette and Pierre Ravan discussing the rapid changes in DIY music production. Paul Oakenfold unveiled the tracklist of his life in a special Q&A, while Melkweg played host to the Hard Dance Event — an ADE conference devoted to the harder styles of dance music. At the playground, Technology giants Pioneer, Akai Pro and Numark debut their latest and greatest DJ gear.
