Nettwerk One Music/Revelry Music, Combustion Music, Sea Gayle Music and Complete Control Management recently came together to host a two-day writing camp combining Nashville writers: NW1/Revelry clients Neil Mason, Mike Fiorentino and Tammi Kidd Hutton, Combustion client Luke Foley, and Sea Gayle clients Bryan Simpson and Ingrid Andress with two EDM artists: Tritonal and Brass Knuckles.

Nettwerk’s AJ Burton says, “The idea of organizing an outside-the-box writing camp in Nashville intrigued me and my colleague Melissa Emert-Hutner, and after discussing the idea with our friends at Combustion, Sea Gayle and Complete Control Management, we decided to give it a shot. Combining forces between two thriving genres and pushing the limits and EDM artists’ ability to feature various artists on their records, it just made sense to us.”

Complete Control Management’s head of A&R Joseph Pepin says, “I’ve toyed around with the idea of sending dance acts from Complete Control’s roster to Nashville for a while now. When I began discussing the idea with my friends over at Nettwerk, Combustion and Sea Gayle, I found that they shared an equal amount of excitement for the idea, so we moved forward with it. I’ve always had the utmost respect for the songwriting that takes place in Nashville and the ability that the writers in this city have to tell a story in a unique way. I think it is safe to say that we are all really happy with the results of the camp, and we hope to have more outside the box collaborations of this type in the near future.”
