RBMA: Introducing Red Bull Music Academy 2010

The Red Bull Music Academy is in London for 2010. It will run from 7th February to 12th March and will include a plethora of lectures, workshops and nights in and around London. RBMA has been in existence for an incredible 12 years now and has served as an extremely valuable tool, and stepping stone, for many talented people – Tea Leaf Dancers by Flying Lotus, featuring Andreya Triana, was a byproduct of RBMA 2006 in Australia, for example.

Alas, this year has an extremely exciting roster of candidates, including (but not limited to!); Amenta, Lunice, Cohoba, Swede:art, Manzilla (Electric Wire Hustle), Kidkanevil, Illum Sphere, Tokimonsta and 00Genesis. The following will also be performing at selected events; Andy C, Bugge Wesstletoft, Charlie Dark, Clark, David Rodigan, DJ Food, Flying Lotus, Goldie, Hudson Mohawke, James Pants, Ramadanman, Roots Manuva and The Scientist. With an almost embarrassing array of artists, this year is gonna be bigger than ever!

Jus Like Music will covering RBMA 2010 in detail. We will be attending some of the lectures and the planned nights, as well as conducting interviews with some of the candidates. We will also be providing video footage from the academy whenever possible. If you’re not too familiar with RBMA, or haven’t witnessed one of the fabled lectures, then check out this short version of Domu‘s lecture from RBMA 2004 in Rome…

For an archive crammed with the full versions of LOADS of these lectures, check out the Red Bull Music Academy website. If you have time on your hands to watch the full videos, I would particularly recommend Cut Chemist and Hymnal and also Madlib – but there are so many amazing videos archived there that you could lose whole days at a time!

So, stay tuned for the full lowdown on RBMA 2010 in London!
