Turner’s history as a journalist and conference creator naturally led him on the path to see the need for an industry body to independently help preserve, protect and promote electronic music worldwide.

Kurosh Nasseri is an entertainment lawyer with exceptional experience in the legal and business aspects of electronic music: over the years he has represented many of the leading artists, publishers, labels, clubs, festivals, agents, managers and brands in the genre. Having served as a Trustee for the Grammys, it was natural for him to recognise the need for an industry body to represent the interests of the electronic music genre as a whole.
