The world-famous Red Bull Music Academy touches down at Fire in Vauxhall on Saturday March 16th for their first major London event of 2013 with a superb line up of sheer quality progressive electronic music featuring not one, not two but three major headliners including three RBMA lecturers: Mala, Martyn and Trevor Jackson.
Topping the bill is 3024 Records boss and Brainfeeder artist Martyn who’s unique brand of bass-driven music defies easy categorisation, mixing up tempos and genres to deliver an intricate and immersive sound.
Next up is one of the founding members of the dubstep sound Mala who will be performing an exclusive 4-hour set, the likes of which are rarely seen. Having recently released his Mala In Cuba album on Brownswood, he has been working with world-music legend Giles Peterson so expect a 4-hour sonic journey.
Detroit-native and Berlin resident Jimmy Edgar has been pushing the envelope of electronic music since the late 90’s building up a cult following for his sound with releases on Warp, K7, Items & Things, Non Plus and most recently, his fourth artist album Majenta on Hotflush.
House & techno tastemaker Untold has been re-invigorating dance floors across the globe with his precision engineered releases on esteemed labels including R&S, Soul Jazz, Clone, Hessle, Numbers as well as his own imprint Hemlock.
With his first release Your Words Matter (alongside Ramadanman aka Pearson Sound) being named as one of DJ Mag’s 100 Most Important House Records, Midland’s take on house and techno mixes the low-end rumbling of dubstep with the wide screen experimentation of classic electronica.
Seminal UK producer Trevor Jackson’s contribution to the international music and art scene is immense, launching with production alias The Underdog, remixing Massive Attack, U2 and UNKLE, he formed Output Records releasing artists such as Four Tet, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture and his own Playgroup project. Having closed Output in 2007, Jackson remains a very much in demand producer, sound designer and remixer and DJ.
Having remixed Gold Panda, Sinden and Eskmo London-based Throwing Snow mixes glitched out electronic, dubstep and bass that has won him support from Mary Anne Hobbs to Benji B to Radioheads’ Thom Yorke.
Last but certainly not least we welcome Happa – Within less than twelve months Happa has gained support from Skream, Annie Mac, Loefah, Ben UFO, remixed Four Tet and Vondlepark, featured on Mary Anne Hobbs’ XFM show, delivered Mixmag’s Mix Of The Week and has first first release scheduled on R&S. Not bad for a 15 year old.
