Red Bull Music Academy is a symposium of music and knowledge. Ever year, aspiring and inspiring music makers from more than 30 countries meet in a new city to swap creative visions in lectures, studio sessions, and take part in signature concerts and club-nights.
RBMA will be in Dubai this Friday where they will host a master class to an invited group of musicians, producers and DJs from across the United Arab Emirates conducted by Benji B and Nickodemus who will share their music expertise with the attendees.
Later on Benji B and Nickodemus along with DUST DJs, DJ Solo aka Wriggly Scott (Another Music), James Locksmith (JembeMusic) and Mr. Yeti (Ten Thousand Yen) will be performing at The Music Room.
Additionally, Nickodemus will also work on the Dubai chapter of his Global Minute project which will have local artists perform over one his tracks and be part of an exhibition and international release.
A GLOBAL MINUTE is a multi-media Hip Hop project that has been started by DJ/Music Producer Nickodemus and artist Justin Carty. Through music, paintings and video from various cities throughout the world, they hope to get a closer insight of these cities, seen through the eyes of local MCs and artists they collaborate with along the way.
The aim of the project is to finish a one hour album and video as well as paintings of every MC/vocalist involved. Here's the video for "A New York Minute" and I'm looking forward to seeing the Dubai version.
I will leave you with this Benji B mix recommended by DJ Solo, a taste of what to expect on Friday night.
Date: Friday, 23rd Friday. Doors open at 9pm.
