Once again it’s time for the Red Bull Music Academy, which takes place this time in London, 2010. The RBMA team chooses a selection of 60 most promising artists to get down with some serious creativity.
I was blessed to get in a couple of years ago (Toronto, 2007) and I have to say the 2 weeks are like living in a paradise. In Toronto we had tutors / lecturers like DJ Premier, Jake One, Ommas Keith (Sa-Ra), Arthur Baker, Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins (Stones Throw) and Dabrye. Wow.
In a nutshell, Academy is all about making music with huge equipment selection in various studios and taking advices from the experienced ones. All this comes with good catering and live shows every night. The 60 chosen ones get this everything for free. Some of the earlier “students” include e.g. Flying Lotus, Aloe Blacc and Oddisee.
The application period continues till 27th of July, 2009! (Application form )
