Now for some music. These tracks were made at the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona last year and they’re a super dope example of what you can get up to while you’re at the Academy.
Downloads after the jump!
Firstly there’s the tech-house brilliance of Cape Town’s Thibo Tazz and Zolcan Breaker. It’s strictly for the upbeat dancefloors.

But if you really want to get a taste of the music from the academy and the actual academy itself check out ‘Analogue’ by Ireland Jazz-tech man Rory D, Drum n Bass godfather DJ Zinc and Tom Oberheim, one the pioneers of analogue synthesis. The track is an evocative piece of dancefloor electronica with Tom Oberheim musing about analogue synthesis on top. It’s an amazing piece of music that is equal parts floor shaking goodness and a lesson in electronic music history. Grab this while you can:
