school of music
Marking it’s 15th Anniversary, Red Bull Music Academy continues to gear-up for one of the biggest celebrations of UK club culture on the EDF Energy London Eye, bringing back Red Bull Revolutions in Sound on 14th November 2013.

Taking over one of the capital’s most iconic landmarks, Red Bull brings thirty of the most legendary UK club nights of past and present together for one night, each hosting their own capsule for a 360° homage to the seminal players of, and contributors to, the landscape over the past 30 years.

With a roster of capsule hosts that have transformed the face of clubland, a swathe of over 50 of dance music’s elite to be manning the decks can now be announced. Revolutionaries in their own right Richie Hawtin, Rudimental (DJ set), Skream, Erol Alkan, Todd Terry, Gilles Peterson, Green Velvet, Ben UFO, Craig Richards, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Derrick May, Fabio & Grooverider, Seb Fontaine, Subb-An, Jah Shaka, Goldie, Derrick Carter, Boy Better Know, Steve Strange, DJ EZ, Danny Rampling, Sasha, Dusky, Mark Moore, Layo, Mr C, Graeme Park and Mike Pickering are among the artists set to perform, representing the wealth and breadth of talent the UK’s club scene has spawned, incubated and hosted over the years. Red Bull Music Academy graduate Katy B joins the heavyweight line-up of DJs whilst Lily Allen teams up with West London hip-hop party Yo Yo for a special live show.


Further clubs include the once-coveted, now-closed, genre-defying underground haunt The End, Manchester’s proto-superclub Fac51 The Haçienda and reigning supremo The Warehouse Project, Birmingham’s Rainbow, sound system warriors Jah Shaka and pirate radio turned premier imprint Rinse. Also joining, urban entertainment behemoth TwiceasNice, global club giant Cream, grime hotbeds Eskimo Dance and Sidewinder and techno institution Lost see almost every corner of dance culture covered. Roaming London protagonists The Hydra, Newcastle’s King of Clubs Shindig and established scene hotspots Corsica Studios and Eagle London also weigh in.

They join previously announced stables Bugged Out, Fabric, Shoom, The Blitz Club, Talkin’ Loud & Saying Something, Metalheadz, Motion, Sub Club, Jive Turkey and London Warehouse Events. Taking to the skies, these basements, backrooms, bars and brands are among those that helped seed the most transformative movements in dance music history. The bill of club stalwarts will be joined by online TV outfit Boiler Room which has pushed club culture to the masses via their regular stream-only parties and concept programme Channel Four House Party. To top it off, a Silent Disco on ground level sees 2000 guests able to select which capsule they would like to tune into.

As those in attendance dance through history in the skies, others can dive into the action online via the comprehensive coverage. A world first in live-streaming, all thirty capsules will be broadcast simultaneously on in the UK in partnership with Channel 4, and globally on Red Bull’s YouTube channel so fans across the globe can participate in this unique celebration.
A proud supporter of digital innovation, Red Bull Music Academy has teamed up with Google+ to create a living archive of club culture, set to launch imminently. A Google-powered hub for exploring clubs past and present, the Revolutions in Sound site will enable fans to upload, share and discover photos, memories and sounds to create an interactive and ever-evolving database of clubbing.

About Red Bull Music Academy

The latest edition of the Red Bull Music Academy took place in New York City in Spring 2013, marking its fifteenth anniversary and bringing together 62 carefully selected producers, vocalists, beat-makers, instrumentalists and DJs from 35 countries.

More than 1,500 musical luminaries have participated in the Red Bull Music Academy. Lecturers have included Brian Eno, Nile Rodgers, James Murphy, Erykah Badu, Giorgio Moroder, Skream, Chuck D, Steve Reich, Sly & Robbie, Mark Ronson, M.I.A., Hot Chip, MF Doom, RZA, Gilberto Gil and pioneering synth inventor Bob Moog, amongst others. Many Academy alumni have gone on to become true innovators of their scenes like LA soul singer Aloe Blacc (“I Need A Dollar”); experimental electronic music producer Flying Lotus, currently collaborating with Odd Future and Thom Yorke; and Katy B, who’s credited with introducing the sound of London’s dubstep and garage scene to the pop mainstream; as well as both members of TNGHT: Hudson Mohakwe, signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. empire, and Quebecian beatsmith Lunice.

The Red Bull Music Academy has been pairing industry legends and emerging music makers since 1998 in cities such as Berlin, Cape Town, Melbourne, Barcelona, Rome, São Paulo and London. This unique combination of old school knowledge and new school sounds is unrivalled for its creative exploration and achievement. Each Academy edition leaves behind structures to encourage musical collaboration and creative exchange for years to come. By the end of 2013, there will be ten Red Bull Music Academy recording studios around the world, including the latest incarnation in NYC’s Chelsea district, designed by Jeffrey Inaba.
