RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY presents T. WILLIAMS + MJ COLE + WOOKIE + ELIJAH & SKILLIAM + NIGHTWAVE
Red Bull Music Academy returns to The Nest for the final instalment of the Bank Holiday programming. Presenting a soundscape journey from garage, grime and funky to footwork and house, the Red Bull Music Academy team bring some of the most influential players within UK bass music to our basement disco.
Ex-grime don and Deep Teknologi label boss, T Williams is without question one of the most exciting house/bass producers to come out of the UK in recent years. His ruffneck take on the classic 4×4 genre fully burst onto the scene in mid 2010 with the three track EP he released on Local Action (featuring the heavily played and remixed track, ‘Heartbeat’). Since then, he’s played alongside a variety of artists including James Zabiela, Ben Westbeech, Space Dimension Controller and Paul Woolford, laying testament to his cross-genre distinctiveness.
MJ Cole, forefather of the UKG sound and unapologetic lover of a bassline, joins T Williams. MJ Cole is known for his productions including the top ten hit “Crazy Love”, the albums “Sincere” and “Cut To The Chase” plus a Mercury nomination and MOBO Best Producer award. With a slew of low-end, clacky dance floor tracks recently uploaded to soundcloud under the header “2012”, MJ Cole’s studio efforts hint at some big releases this year. Awe at his impeccable song selection on Sunday 8th.
Seminal garage producer, Wookie, is joined by the original kids of grime, Elijah & Skilliam as well as LuckyMe affiliate and Red Bull Music Academy 2011 alumna Nightwave. Highlights from the night will be recorded and broadcast exclusively on rbmaradio.com
Applications for the Red Bull Music Academy 2012, set to happen in New York City from September 30th to November 2nd, are still open. Interested producers, vocalists, instrumentalists and DJs can sign up for what will be the musical experience of a lifetime on redbullmusicacademy.com until April 2nd.
