London will host the first ever Take Note electronic music conference this Saturday, bringing a packed line-up of industry speakers to East London venue Second Home for a one-day event focussing specifically on the topic of how young people can break into the electronic music industry.

Speakers include DJs Roni Size, Kidnap Kid, Laura Jones, Hodgson, DJ Yoda and Ben Pierce, co-Founder of Resident Advisor Nick Sabine, Mixmag Editor Duncan Dick, DJ Mag writer Charlotte Lucy Cijffers and Deputy Editor of the Guardian Guide Kate Hutchinson, founder of Dimensions, Outlook and Horizon Festivals Jack Robinson, music radio and TV presenters from Kiss FM, Capital Xtra and producer of BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix Huw Owen, songwriter for Sam Smith and Disclosure Jimmy Napes, A&R people from Island Records and Warner Bros Music, and loads more.

"Whilst being one of the most rewarding careers if you're passionate about music, the industry is notoriously hard to break into and will constantly throw challenges at you," Take Note founder Bianca Mayhew told Resident Advisor. "I want to give young people in music a support system from the early days and in turn ensure they get the best out of themselves and their lives in music," she explains, adding that, "Take Note has been created entirely for young people at entry level to the industry, so the tone of the panels will be to explain the industry rather than simply discuss it. The focus is on teaching the next generation, connecting them with professionals and discovering talent".
