Southern hip-hop wouldn’t sound the way it does without Mannie Fresh. The Nola representative earned his stripes on the local DJ circuit in the late 1980s, before going on to become the primary production force behind the Cash Money Records empire. Laying down the entire beat palette on multiple LPs for B.G., Juvenile, Hot Boys, Lil Wayne, and Big Tymers, Mannie Fresh sculpted the big, bangin’, and brassy sound of the Southern bling-rap movement at its boldest and brightest. In a public...

This interview was the first-ever Red Bull Music Academy lecture, held in Berlin in 1998. Jeff Mills is undoubtedly one of the founding fathers of techno music. Starting out as radio DJ The Wizard on Detroit's WJLB before teaming up with Anthony Srock in the late ‘80s to form the industrial inspired Final Cut project, Mills met former Parliament bassist Mad Mike Banks. The two hit it off and soon the Underground Resistance studios came into being, fusing Banks’ keyboard and synth collection...

If there ever was a DJ/producer/engineer that deserved a monograph, it is probably François Kevorkian. After moving to New York in 1975, his influential disco edits and medleys landed him an A&R job at Prelude where he helped define the dance-music zeitgeist. As a DJ, he continued to work at seminal clubs like Studio 54, The Loft, and the Paradise Garage. By the mid-’80s, François K had become an in-demand studio hand (just ask Yazoo, U2, the Cure, Diana Ross, Kraftwerk, and Depeche...
