Download the full 35-track compilation featuring a taste of the music made at the Red Bull Music Academy during four autumn weeks in Madrid last year. From arpeggiated acid to experimental exotica, these are just some of those once-in-a-lifetime collaborations that made the 2011 Academy in Madrid all so special.
The Various Assets – Not For Salecompilation holds some of the wild juxtapositions and magical moments that happened when people from all corners of the world found companions in sound – and discovered they spoke a similar language despite contrasting backgrounds and methodologies.
Chances are you might hear some of these artists playing a festival or two this year, or dropping an EP that turns your dance floor upside down. If that’s the case, reset your compass points, and join us en route to who knows where. Check the tracklist and download the compilation below. Included in the download is a PDF booklet with the stories behind the songs.
