Ableton has announced the first round of artists for this year’s Loop summit for music-makers in Los Angeles. 

Taking place over three days across a range of venues in Hollywood from November 9 to 11, including confirmed locations EastWest Studios and the Montalbán Theatre, this year’s Loop will feature production and sound design insights from Jamaican production crew Equiknoxx and Japanese producer Foodman; Dutch producer-percussionist Binkbeats and pop experimentalist Lafawndah, who will run through their compelling live performances; a foley recording and polyrhythm masterclass from Woodstock-born artist Photay; and New Zealand-based rapper and writer Coco Solid, who will reveal the approach to creative collaboration behind her prolific back catalogue.

Registration for Loop is still open via the Loop website. Further guests and program information for 2018 will be released in the coming weeks.
