On Friday 8th June Red Bull Music Academy joins forces with cutting-edge London club series FOUND to bring together some of the most forward-thinking minds in progressive electronic music for a very special showcase at Vauxhall’s Hidden!

RBMA has gained a fierce reputation for uncovering some of the finest up-and-coming talent through their annual music workshops, from Flying Lotus to Hudson Mohawke to Nina Kraviz. Showcasing artists as varied as Major Lazer, Erykah Badu and DJ Harvey, the Academy also regularly hosts arenas at some of the best festivals in the world, including Sónar, Movement, Mutek, and the Montreux Jazz Festival.

Heading the bill is LA beatsmith Daedelus. With a string of releases on Plug Research, Hefty, Alpha Pup, and most recently Ninja Tune, Daedelus has refined a style that has no imitators. Crafting forward thinking electronic sounds with playful arrangements, fusing influences from house, electronica and hip-hop, having collaborated with the likes of
Busdriver, MF Doom and TTC to create a sound that is entirely unique. As one of the first artists to pioneer the Monome, along with custom designed software into his live sets, Daedelus has amazed audiences the world-over and firmly
cemented his reputation as one of the most exciting producers in electronic music.

Joining Daedelus is Austrian producer and Red Bull Music Academy graduate, Dorian Concept, interested in exploring the interface between digital and analogue, musical performance, and improvisation. His productions range from experimental electronic sounds to hip-hop, funk and jazz, with off-the-cuff improvisations and quirky keyboard
breakdowns mixed with scattered drums and piercing synth-laced hooks. His recent releases on Ninja Tune, Kindred Spirits and Vienna’s Affine label have gained hefty support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs and Benji B.

Producer Cooly G describes her sound as ‘deep house tribal dubstep’. Putting together abstract post-garage beats that shuffle into life dubbed out with her own cut- up vocal snippets. Her debut ‘Narst / Love Dub’ EP released on Hyperdub was met with rapturous excitement, earning her ‘Single Of The Week’ in The Guardian and ‘One To Watch’ in The

Having recently created waves of excitement, another alumnus of the Red Bull Music Academy steps-up to complete the line-up: former Rinse FM host: Braiden. Celebrated for blowing up dubstep’s limitations with his inventive selection and super-tight, technical mixing, Braiden has become a staple on London’s underground circuit. Described by FACT
Magazine as “absurdly talented”, he lives up to the hype with a mixing style that thrives on the element of surprise, fusing together house, techno, garage and dubstep and fabricating his vision for the future of London music.

It’s the careful programming, and dynamic collaborations that have earned FOUND a place in the hearts of young clubbers. Having championed the deeper side, FOUND sets out to explore the most intriguing and exciting club sounds, with a focus this time on the evolution of house music and the new techno movements. Don’t miss this very special event!

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
