Classically trained but equally inspired by electronic music, Francesco Tristano is on a journey that’s rendering the distinction between the two all but irrelevant. As a pianist who regards his instrument as a piece of percussion, it’snot surprising that his head was turned by the New York nightlife while studying at the prestigious Juilliard School. In 2011 Red Bull Music Academy lecture he goes in depth about his transition and why he sees no difference between the two forms, how he came...

As West African music burrows ever deeper into the global consciousness, so awareness of its history grows. Ghana’s ‘70s highlife scene ran alongside, and was influenced by, Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat, resting on the supreme talents of Ebo Taylor and Gyedu-Blay Ambolley. Still active in his sixties, Gyedu goes back to the ‘60s, when his ears pricked to the Voice Of America’s Jazz Hour shows and the post-independence sounds of his own country, spearheaded by the legendary Kwame Nkrumah....

The duo of Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins emerged from the effervescent Los Angeles underground of the 2000s, kindred spirits to the sampledelia of Madlib and spirituality of Carlos Niño. Cutting their teeth with the various labels and at the small happenings around LA, the pair developed their own mystic hip-hop brew informed by America’s rich black traditions – Muldrow’s parents recorded as Chemise – and welded together with samplers, keys and microphones. In this lecture at...

If anyone embodies the spirit and eclecticism of Ann Arbor’s Ghostly International and Spectral Sound labels, it’s Tadd Mullinix. Since first taking to music in his teens, the Michigan-native has developed a chameleon-like ability to shift between genres and styles while maintaining an understanding of what makes people react and move: hip-hop as Dabrye, house and techno as JTC, experimental electronic under his birth name, EBM as Charles Manier and all-out ragga jungle as SK-1 alongside...

Vince Degiorgio may have been around the music industry for as long as most of us can remember, but he still talks tunes with the infectious zeal of a kid in a record store. A disco DJ in Toronto clubs during the heyday of the genre in the ’70s, he spent his days spinning vinyl, working in a record store and gathering the skills which would later make him a hit-maker, songwriter, A&R guru and music publisher. The corporate years of his career included stints at BMG in Canada and RCA in...

Growing up in East Berlin before the fall of the wall meant having access to a different reality. This didn’t deter a young Alex Barck who despite his situation devoured all he could about music from magazines to radio shows by Monika Dietel on SFB. This childhood obsession would become a lifelong journey after the wall fell and a teenage Barck found himself in the heart of one of the most influential cities and scenes on earth. An avid record collector, he soon became known as an eclectic DJ...

Although he initially made his name in the British jazz scene, Malcolm Cecil was a key figure in the development of the synthesizer and his best-known work was made in collaboration with soul legends. After playing bass in a series of ’50s and ’60s jazz bands, Cecil was a founding member of Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated. But it was the possibilities provided by synthesizers that really excited him, and with Bob Margouleff he formed T.O.N.T.O.’s Expanding Head Band, releasing two...

Electronic music didn’t start with Eno, but it was certainly never the same after him. On Roxy Music’s first two albums he helped make synthesizers and tape effects part of a rock lineup, pricking the ears of future synth-pop creators such as Human League. As a solo artist he forged a new genre, which he dubbed ambient music, before effectively becoming a one-man genre himself, lending touches to Genesis (where he’s credited with “Enossification”), John Cale, and Bowie during his...

Alice Russell grew up in Suffolk where, following in her father’s musical footsteps, she studied cello and sang in choirs. In 1994, she moved to Brighton to study art and music and made a home on the seaside digging past her classical training into the world of gospel and soul. By the early 2000s, she started singing and collaborating with local musicians including Quantic and Nostalgia 77. Eventually she signed with Brighton’s Tru Thoughts label in 2004 and established herself as a soul...

These days, the world’s top rap artists come calling for DJ Toomp’s trademark drum patterns. Naturally, it wasn’t always so. Behind the Atlanta producer’s extraordinary achievements is a history of record collecting, machine manipulation and self-education, a kind of holy trinity for durability in the game. Keen to impress the importance of learning about the business side of music, Toomp is proof that it’s not just skills that pay the bills – feeding your head about the nuts and...

In his own words, James Pants is a crate-digging nerd, who is uncomfortable with irony and was fortunate enough to be discovered by hip-hop maverick Peanut Butter Wolf. Since linking with the Stones Throw crew, he has been knitting all kinds of hard-to-find music into his lo-fi beats, from funk, disco and electro boogie to lounge and weirdo electronica. In his 2008 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, Pants discussed signing with Stones Throw, his approach to DJing, and his thoughts on irony in...
