Free Download | Red Bull Music Academy Various Assets London 2010
If you are a DJ, producer, musician, singer or rapper, you need to check out the Red Bull Music Academy. It is a two week session held once a year in a different city from around the world. Each year Red Bull puts out a call to artists to submit an application for the academy. They accept on 60 artists to attend this amazing opportunity to work with select artists from around the world. The sessions include workshops, shows, panels, and opportunity to collaborate and record tracks. Each year Red Bull Music academy selects some of the recordings and release a compilation. This past year the academy was held in London, and they just dropped the compilation a couple of weeks ago for free.
The compilation features music from Brainfeeder artist Tokimonsta, DC producer Oddisee, Stones Throw artist Dam-Funk and others. It definitely fits the spirit of what we do at monthly Unlooped events.

This year’s 60 participants brought diverse musical visions to London: providing panoramic windows into what’s going on in the 32 different countries they hail from. Similarly, the space in which they created was a window onto the host city. A place where walls reflected and bounced ideas rather than divided individuals. A set of rooms solely dedicated to why a musical life is so worth living, especially in a multi-faceted place like this LDN TWN we love.
The recording studio on the ground floor will stay a dedicated musical space for citizens of the Red Bull Music Academy world and beyond. And we hope it’ll provide an excellent sonic jumping-off point, in a city that’s always soaked up laser-sharp musical movements: from yesterday’s air-checked cassette mixes hawked from across the Atlantic, to the Caribbean bass waves that creates a cushion of dynamic pressure under all kinds of drum patterns.
This compilation represents the thirteenth edition of the Red Bull Music Academy, and the tracks you’ll hear are the result of a once-in-a-lifetime set of musical circumstances: collaborations between people who’d never met, but found contrasting keys next to Tower Bridge. Catch them on one of our festival stages around the world this summer – and watch out for the Academy to touch down in Tokyo in 2011.
