For the Record 15 Conversations with People Who Have Changed the Way We Listen to Music

Author(s): Red Bull Music Academy


In celebration of its 15th Anniversary, the Red Bull Music Academy-revered as one of the most progressive institutions in today's musical landscape-has paired up a compelling selection of top artists and industry insiders, curating conversations on some of the most relevant topics in music today. For the Record includes conversations between Nile Rodgers and Martyn Ware, artists involved in some of the biggest tunes in disco and pop from acts such as Chic, Daft Punk, David Bowie, Madonna and The Human League; they compare notes on the best way to make a chart-topper. Erykah Badu, one of neo-soul's defining voices, shares career advice and psychedelic wisdom with up-and-coming New York rap duo The Underachievers. DJ Harvey and Ben UFO, two different generations of DJs, talk about the good old days, the present day, and the uncertain future of selecting records for a living. Jamaican visionary Lee 'Scratch' Perry is paired with UK dub producer Adrian Sherwood. Those familiar with Perry's unique worldview will not be disappointed by this surprising and funny conversation. In a similar fashion, For the Record also explores the topics of live performance, instruments/interfaces, conceptualism, drumming, rhythm, and many more. Together with stunning visual design by Chris Rehberger's Double Standards agency, the results make for one of the most insightful publications on the current state of music and the music industry.
