RED BULL BEAT SUITE MELBOURNE – STREAMING ! FEAT.

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.

Red Bull Beat Suite is homage to the last 20 years of urban beats and electronic music genres, told by Australia’s and the world’s most cutting edge musicians, producers and vocalists through a ‘mix tape’ of orchestra, turntables and live beats.

Adding to the experience, Melbourne’s own and world renown ENESS will create a never before seen interactive visual display, utilising their own award winning 3D projection mapping technologies.

So we are slowly working on a mix-tape loosely themed “Funk from Another Planet”

We will be dropping a collection of some of the spaced out soul & funk cuts that simply don’t played enough… you know the kind.. the kind of jam you need to dim the lights to enjoy properly.

Here is a few that might make it on;

Wah Wah Watson – Goo Goo Waa Waa

Funkadelic – Maggot Brain

Bootsy Collins – Munchies For Your Love

STEVE MILLER BAND – FLY LIKE AN EAGLE

Cymande – Dove

JEAN MICHEL JARRE. OXYGENE 4.

May this too if we can fit it in.

EARLY RAVE, DEEP HOUSE, TECHNO: 808 State – Pacific 303 (RARE 303 RELEASE)


Roland TR-808 Rhythm ComposerWhen it comes to earthy electronic music.. does it get finer than this by British electronic outfit 808 State.. really digging this 303 version of their signature tune Pacific.

A ‘Summer of Love’ warehouse classic originally released way back in 1989 & still as Deep and Soulful as electronic music will get, an absolute masterpiece of electronic music for mine.

The recording partnership between New York based Masters At Work & the unmistakable talents of latin vocal sensation India have to be one of the finest collaborations in Soulful House music. The trio have put together so many of  the seminal moments of house music over the last 15 years.
