So it turns out that the Red Bull Music Academy doesn’t just put on overblown beat battles where you get to see a bunch of pradoothers waving their arms about while they play a cd of one of their beats and turn some knobs on the mixer so you know they’re ‘doing it live’.
In fact, they have this archive of lectures by EVERYONE from madlib to arabian prince to dbridge. if you want to learn some interesting (and admittedly some not so interesting) stuff about all that ‘music’ you kids are listening to, there are literally hours of footage. i just keep it on in the background while im doing stuff and you hear some cool shit.
It’s like TED for beat heads.
