The man of the hour on the third day of this year’s vibrant Midem was easily Scooter Braun, who nabbed the first-ever Midem Hall of Fame Award at the Midem Music Awards launch event last night. Braun, who manages a list of Who’s Who among today’s international mega hitmakers (think of Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen, among others) was honoured for his innovative approach to talent management in the 21st century.

Scooter Braun was moved to share his experiences at the first Midem Hall of Fame Awards.

Client Liaison, the first-ever Australian finalist in the Midem Artist Accelerator, then showed us why they are making a name for themselves in their native market and deserve to be heard by the rest of the world.

London’s own Dylan Williams, an international hit rapper in the making, put on a powerful gig for us.

No wonder beautiful franco-american duo Haute were picked to take part in this year’s Midem Artist Accelerator: their flair for creating some of the hottest hip-hop sounds today was very evident on stage.

Meanwhile Cosmos People, the Taiwanese band, delivered a powerful rendition of their pop-and-jazz fusion during Midem’s Taiwan Beats sessions.
