“The application phase for the 2012 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy has started! Have all your questions about the RBMA and its application process answered, learn a thing or two, and have some fun along the way. Special guests for today are Academy lecturer Exile, one of the few artists who embodies the free-thinking spirit of California’s beat generation. Whether it’s re-creating classic radio broadcasts, going ballistic on the MPC, trading vintage funk breaks with his brother from another DJ Day, remixing Flying Lotus, or lacing tracks for vocalists as varied as Fashawn, Snoop Dogg, Rakaa, Muhsinah or Mobb Deep, Exile has just begun. Another very special guest is Lester Johnson, a funk legend, who used to record with rare groove sensations Ebony Rhythm Band in the early ’70s and became sowmehat of a musical director for them. Musical progression meets the foundation aas Exile and Lester Johnson discuss history and innovation while sharing experiences from their own musical journey. And as no day at the Academy is complete without a proper after-party, make sure to catch ’em live right after the session. Lecture starts at 7pm, club night at 9pm. Watch out, this RBMA Session is an invite-only.” I’ll be doing a private producer session before the lecture starts and will share the creation towards the end. Big ups to DJ Metrognome for setting this up, respect!
