GIG: On The Buttons @ RBMA, London

Calling all London based producers and beat-heads! Get yourself down to Red Bull Music Academy HQ at 155-171 Tooley Street, London (SE1 2JP) this Saturday (22nd May). Gut Instinct Records presents On The Buttons, an event that will encompass a Q&A session with Eric Lau, as well as a live performance from Goldielocks – and it’s FREE to get in!

It’s worth noting that this isn’t your regular gig, although the Q&A session probably gave that away. It will be running from 2-6pm, but you will need to RSVP to get on the guest list. Either confirm attendance via the Facebook event page or email

This is the inaugural On The Buttons event, but they will be looking to have a different guest producer each month who will bring along their workstation and give an insight into how they work, show some exclusive tunes and talk a bit about how they got into music and what inspires them.

On The Buttons;

“The mic is open to anyone who wants to ask for production tips, tricks, or find out what they ate for breakfast that morning. This month’s special guest producer is Eric Lau, renowned for his smoothed out soulful hip-hop and work with Lupe Fiasco, Dudley Perkins, and Guilty Simpson.”

I’m gutted that I am out of town this weekend as I would have loved to have gone along to this. Also, really cool that they’ve found a good use for the RBMA HQ post-RBMA 2010. I’ll be sure to catch the next one though!
