RED BULL BEAT SUITE MELBOURNE – STREAMING ! FEAT. Aloe Blacc(US) vocals Ladi6 (NZ) vocals / MC Tamil Rogeon composer Members of The Australian Youth Orchestra strings Galapagoose Monome, sampling drum machine Amin Payne sampler, drum machine DJ Perplex (3 x Aus DMC Champion) turntables, effects Scratch22 (NZ) turntables, samplers, effects
Red Bull Beat Suite is set to smash every conceived musical boundary – creating an entirely original, never-before-heard musical exploration, mixing together the nation’s best beat makers, musicians from the Australian Youth Orchestra as well as special guest vocalists including US soul singer, Aloe Blacc who will all feature on the same stage for two shows only on Saturday 12th May, at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
This very special event will be an orchestral exploration of the last 20 years of electronic and beat music combining two diverse musical worlds, setting a musical precedent by bringing the contemporary and classical worlds together on the one stage for the very first time in Australia.
Fans can expect to hear Australia’s best beat makers including two turntablists, a 15 piece orchestra, bass player, percussionist plus the hottest guest vocalists to produce a show like never before. The show will feature the talent of Ladi6, DJ Perplex, Amin Payne, Scratch 22 and Galapagoose. This innovative musical mash up will be cast under the intrepid direction of Australia’s own maestro and composer, Tamil Rogeon, who is charged with conducting a bunch of people who quite frankly, don’t belong in the same room – let alone the same stage! Red Bull Beat Suite is the creation of curator and creative director of the event, Kano Hollamby.
Red Bull Beat Suite is a rare opportunity to push the envelope and drive forth innovation by fusing together cultures that would normally play in very different playgrounds. The event will provide opportunities for the young guns of classical music to work with those from a hip hop and electronic music background – an unexpected collaboration with mind-blowing results.
Utilising their own award winning 3d projection mapping technologies, Melbourne’s own and world renown ENESS studios will create a never before seen interactive visual display to accompany this cutting edge performance.
Red Bull Beat Suite will debut at the stunning and musically paramount Melbourne Recital Centre, which is excited to be part of this exciting fusion – be the first to witness this cutting edge musical experiment.

ABOUT THIS EVENT
Red Bull Beat Suite is a drawing together of cultures which is as ambitious as it is thrilling. Take the nation’s best beat makers, put them on stage with the Australian Youth Orchestra, throw in US soul singer and hip hop luminary Aloe Blacc plus special guest singers and musicians, and cast them under the intrepid direction of The Raah Project’s Tamil Rogeon.

A Few points that might help you organise you day better;
It is a FAMILY FRIENDLY PICNIC first and foremost so might be a good idea really to pack for a Sunday Picnic in the park (eski/ picnic basket, fruit, drinks and something to sit on etc.)
We have a spot with a stack of grass around with plenty of room for kids, it is 5 mins from city around Alexandria, there is shade but best people bring some hats etc.
We will have a Sound System with selectors playing an eclectic mix of real music including everything from Sade to James Brown to De La Soul, Erykah Badu & Masters At Work, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles.
It is open decks with rotating DJ’s (but best people get in touch via email@example.com if keen to play to confirm time slots)
We usually aim to get everything starting at about 12pm with ending time around depending on vibe.
We will be waiting for the weather forecast before we make the call as it is outdoors, if it does look like it’s going to rain then we will simply move till next sunny Sunday. (We will be in touch a few days out for the event via email & on the day via SMS in case we have to move the party, so we will need your Mobile details too so we can get location details quicker)
ARTIST CALL OUT: If you are a local Musician, MC, Singer, Percussionist or DJ then we are very keen to hear from you if you would like to play, especially if you down to play percussion along the Djs in an open jam vibe for Sunday. (we are hoping to get thing going as a regular Sunday afternoon local soul funk and hip hop open jam session so if your keen to be part of it let us know)
For local Soul music fan then we simply wants you there enjoying the music, so get a group of friends together, spread the word and come down for a day out it the park to some real music.
Thanks again for getting behind the idea kids.. Sydney definitely needs more people like YOU!
Pray for good weather & hope to see you all at the next one.
