As Red Bull Music Academy New York rolls into its second week, they’ve been rolling out some really interesting content for electronic music fans. Here’s some of the best:
– Four Tet explains to a crowded room how he builds his live sets, including insight into the equipment he uses and how he uses it, and some interesting comments on his approach to building tension and sound quality [watch it above].
– Night Slugs co-founder Bok Bok sits down on the couch with the BBC’s Emma Warren to talk about Slimzee and Dizzee Rascal, creating underwater spaces in night clubs and the evolution of the Night Slugs clubnight and label.
– Slow to Speak, the in-house team from NYC record store Dope Jams, which closed this year but recently reopened in a new location, contribute a mix to RBMA radio [stream it above, and it’s a great companion piece to their FACT mix from last year].
– Legendary engineer Herb Powers Jnr sheds some light on the dark art of mastering, and talks through his history in the business, including mastering Afrika Bambaataa & the Soulsonic Force’s ‘Planet Rock’ and more.
– Stephen Mallinder of post-punk group Cabaret Voltaire sits down for a fireside chat [below].
