Barcelona boy John Talabot had an unusual entry to music. Just as he heard weird techno records before rock’s great building-block bands, it took a broken turntable to make him realise what was missing in dance music – and why he needed to fill that gap himself. Having broken through with "Sunshine," he’s remixed the likes of The xx and has finally recorded his debut album. In this talk at the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy, Talabot steps out from behind the mask to explain why...

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...

In his lecture at the 2010 Red Bull Music Academy in London, Holden talks about wiring things up the wrong way, telling A&R men where to go and why you can mix anything, as long as it’s in the right key.
